Chocolatey goodness!

'Tis the season for baking! I love the holidays and all of the baking that comes with this time of year. I'm starting to get excited again for the holidays. The past few years have been difficult for my family, we've had our hearts broken with the unexpected passings of several loved ones. I know we aren't alone - but I've just been in a funk. Finding joy in the everyday things, let alone the bigger ones, has seemed pointless to me until recently. I haven't started decorating yet but will soon. Nearly all of the autumn pretties are put away for another year. I expect it will be looking a lot like Christmas in my house next weekend.

Following all of my bloggy friends is so much fun. I can't believe how many creative people there are who generously share with us via their blogs. I came across a yummylicious-recipe via http://www.sweetbakingsupply.com/blog/ and just had to give the recipe a whirl!

Here's how I spent my manic-Monday evening!

Zoey waited impatiently just outside the kitchen - hoping I'd let her in for a bite. Oh no!
These are filled cupcakes with chocolate ganache frosting (since ganache isn't very sweet I also frosted some with chocolate buttercream). Tim must have liked them because he ate three of them before I was done frosting them! Don't they look delish? I hope my co-workers like them - they are my unofficial test market. Check out Sweet Baking Supply - awesome blog. Have a fabulous day. I can't wait to find a new recipe to try for the holidays. xo - Em
