Triple chocolate Easter cupcake

level 2

Here's the real deal: three times the chocolate in one cupcake. It starts with a lovely moist, genuine chocolate cupcake base mixed with chocolate chips for a lovely bite. For the frosting, the chef uses a real chocolate ganache. Decorate to your liking or fit it to the season - in this case, a bird's nest in ganache tops the cupcake.
