Chocolate cupcakes topped with decadent chocolate ganache and creamy peanut butter frosting with make your tastebuds dance at your New Year’s Eve celebration.
New Year’s Eve.
When I was a little girl we would always go with my parents to a New Year’s Eve party because my dads band would be playing somewhere so we would go and crash the party and dance all night. It was always a good time with my sisters and my cousins.
Last year we made it a weekend celebration with a staycation. We went with our friends and their children and walked around downtown Salt Lake, had dinner, swam at the hotel and played games and laughed all night. Woke up the next morning, went to breakfast and later that night we rang in the New Year at home with them. It was a great time and we made a lot of memories together.
This year. . .
We are still deciding what we want to do.
These cupcakes will make the cut though because they are so good and my girls had a great time helping to make them. I started off with a cake box mix (don’t judge). I make lots great homemade cakes too but sometimes you need something quick, but don’t worry they have some delicious made from scratch frosting on them which is amazing.
Once your cupcakes are cooled you will dip the tops of them into some chocolate ganache. Oh. Em. Geezy, so good. If you have some strawberries or other fruit at home, dip those suckers in the leftovers.
Or just eat by the spoonful. Nobody needs to know. Besides, your fitness goals can start the next morning.
Once your ganache is set up on your cupcakes you can pipe on the peanut butter cream cheese frosting. Is your mouth watering yet?
Decorate with some festive gold and white sprinkles and top with half of an Oreo cookie decorated with writing gel to look like a clock and you are set for the New Year. You and your guests will be so happy to have this delicious treat.
Be sure to save this recipe for later (because you can totally make it without the clock and sprinkles when you are in need of some chocolate peanut butter goodness).
