Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Chocolate Ganache

I had bookmarked this recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Chocolate Ganache from Equal Opportunity Kitchen a while ago with the idea of saving if for making it to mark my Ruthebabes Blog 1 year Blogaversary which happens to be tomorrow so I had fun making these today for that.



I absolutely love strawberry and chocolate together so it was a fab treat. I was tempted not to make the buttercream but I'm so glad I did because it was so tasty and finished these off perfectly.

I got 12 out of my batch and used a cup and a half of icing sugar in the buttercream instead of the 2 or 3 cups the recipe asked for.



Happy Birthday to my Ruthebabes Blog!!!!
