Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so excited you are here! Be sure to check out the ALL NEW Cupcake Heaven page! And if you are in need to a special cupcake design, use the “Be a Hero” area!

Did you all enjoy your long weekend? My plans to get my house organized and cleaned worked out pretty well, at least the main floor is done, and my office, with the most exciting project we have tackled in awhile {watch for the tutorial tomorrow}. The little bit of baking that was done, were these Double Chocolate Cupcake Bites. A little bite of heaven!

A few factors made them quick and easy…a) they are mini cupcakes, so they bake up faster and cool faster, b) they start with a cake mix and c) even though the ganache is homemade, it takes only minutes to make.

And the little sprinkle with white jimmies, white nonpareils and Snow Caps candy made them extra special! You could certainly bake in liners or also make them in different flavors.

Since I wanted them to be a quick bite of chocolate to pop in your mouth, I baked them without liners.
