To make these delicious chocolate hostess cupcakes, follow these instructions: First, prepare your frosting. Make sure to make the icing as smooth and creamy as possible. Then, add your chocolate and vanilla icing and wait a couple of minutes for it to set. Once your cupcakes are cool, pipe your icing onto the top of the cupcakes. You can use a piping bag or a decorative tip for decorating.
Vanilla bean ganache

Make your own vanilla bean ganache on hostess muffins or cupcakes for an elegant and delicious party. This dessert is a delicious way to show appreciation to a special hostess. To make this delicious dessert, you will need 1 cup of sugar and 2 eggs. Beat the butter and sugar together using a handheld mixer. Add the vanilla beans and scrapings and continue beating. Sift the flour and baking powder together and add half of it to the butter mixture and the remaining half to the milk. Once the batter is ready, bake the cupcakes and cool.

Beat egg whites until stiff, glossy peaks form. Beat for 7 minutes with a hand mixer or a stand mixer, making sure the bowl is not touching the simmering water. The egg whites should be cool enough to touch. Pour the ganache over the baked cupcakes and garnish with a squiggle of vanilla bean buttercream. These cupcakes make the perfect hostess gift!

If you’re making your own hostess cupcakes, make sure to use a round cake cutter. This cutter is a good size for a small round. Once you have the shape of the cupcake, fill it with vanilla cream and then plug in the hole with a small cake round. Save the remaining cupcakes to make more. You can reuse this cutter for the next batch of cupcakes.

Next, make the frosting. Prepare your ingredients for vanilla bean ganache and buttercream. Combine butter and sugar into a bowl and add vanilla extract. Then, transfer the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a tip #6. Once the frosting is ready, place the baked cake on a wire rack and let it cool completely. The ganache will keep for up to 5 days.
Buttery marshmallow cream filling

To create a creamy, buttery filling, combine 4 Tbsp. butter and the confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Add the heavy cream and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. Next, stir in the marshmallow fluff until completely combined and thick. If necessary, freeze the filling for 3 minutes. Once set, use a small, sharp knife to cut a cone shape into each cupcake. Be sure not to cut through the bottom!

To create a buttery marshmallow cream filling, first wash and dry the mixing bowl and whisk. Then, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Next, stir in the corn syrup and sugar. Add a few drops of vanilla extract and stir until combined. Use a star tip to pipe the filling onto the cupcakes. Repeat until all of the filling is used.

If you are piping the marshmallow creme, you should use a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Make sure not to overfill the cupcakes because the filling will crack and spill. Once the marshmallow cream filling is set, you can pipe a pattern on top of each cupcake using a round tip. When piping the filling onto cupcakes, make sure the marshmallow cream is level all the way to the top.

Homemade Hostess Cupcakes are a great way to up the ante on a mass-produced treat. The recipe is a super moist chocolate cupcake topped with a fluffy marshmallow filling. The chocolate ganache on top is the perfect finishing touch. A homemade version of this treat is the perfect dessert for a potluck or a sweet snack! And, unlike mass-produced Hostess cakes, this recipe is quick and easy to prepare.
Fruit filling for cupcakes

When it comes to creating your own hostess cupcake recipe, there are a few basic steps to make them turn out as elegant as your best friend’s. The process is easy and you’ll be glad you took the time to master it! If you have never made cupcake filling before, you might feel intimidated, but once you’ve made a few, you’ll be a pro.

Begin by making your filling by melting butter in a microwave for a few seconds, then adding powdered sugar and milk in increments of one tbsp until you reach the desired consistency. Once you’ve reached the right consistency, fill your Hostess cupcakes with the filling. To create a smooth swirl, use a decorating bag fitted with a wide round tip, or a #5 writing tip. You can even use a ziplock bag.

Next, cut a hole in the top of the cupcake using an apple corer or cupcake corer. Or, you can use a small, sharp knife to make a cone-like shape. Put your filling in a Ziploc bag and cut off the tip. Squish the filling to one side of the bag, then squeeze it into the wells on the cupcake. Then place the filled cupcake back onto the top!

If you’re pressed for time, make homemade hostess cupcakes in advance. These cupcakes keep well in the freezer for up to three months, but you can thaw them overnight before serving. A deliciously moist chocolate cupcake filled with marshmallow creme is the perfect treat for a hostess! Try them for yourself and enjoy a deliciously unique treat. This recipe is fast and easy and can be prepared ahead of time.
Storing Hostess cupcakes

Whether you’re baking a batch of Hostess cupcakes for a party or freezing them, these delicious treats will last for up to three months. Make sure they are stored in an airtight container or freezer bag. Once frozen, let them come to room temperature before serving. These delicious treats are rich chocolate cupcakes filled with marshmallow creme. The marshmallow filling makes these treats a fun twist on the classic snack.

If you’re making the cupcakes ahead of time, you may have a hard time keeping them fresh. This can be a problem if you don’t plan on distributing them right away. But if you’ve made plenty, it’s possible to store them in an airtight container until you’re ready to serve them. These cupcakes keep best when stored in an airtight container and can last up to seven days, so you’ll never have to worry about their safety.

Chocolate cupcakes are often glazed with chocolate icing. To make chocolate icing, simply melt the ingredients together in a saucepan, then pour them into a piping bag fitted with a small tip. While the chocolate glaze is setting, transfer the vanilla icing to a separate container and use a piping bag to pipe the Original Squiggle(r) across the top of the cupcakes.

If you’re freezing hostess cupcakes for a special occasion, it’s a good idea to wrap them individually and freeze them. This way, they won’t dry out in the freezer. If you want to avoid the steps of wrapping and freezing, you can freeze your cupcakes in an airtight container. If you’re freezing them for a long time, you should wrap them in plastic wrap before putting them in the freezer.
