The chocolate ganache is the easiest glaze you could ever make but the flavor and texture makes this a decadent dessert.
The bones...it just to remind you that the spookiest night of all is right around the corner...better watch whats hiding behind the door and under the bed!
Thank you for visiting the blog today! Hope you are having a great time preparing for Halloween in and out of the kitchen.
And remember my pretties...everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
Pot of Bones Halloween Chocolate Covered Cherries Mini Bundt Cakes
1 Small Bag (8.25 oz) Vanilla Cupcake mix
1 Large Jar (10 oz) Maraschino Cherries, chopped (Save liquid!)
3/4 Cup Juice from the Maraschino Cherries
Bag of Bones Candy (got mine at the Dollar Store)
For the Ganache
4 oz Semi-Sweet chocolate chopped (I use Ghirardelli)
1/2 Cup Cream
1 TBSP Butter
Heat your oven at 350F or the temperature recommended in your cupcake mix direction. Prepare the mix accordingly, Usually eggs, oil and water but this time replace the amount of water for 3/4 cup of the Juice of the Maraschino Cherries. Once this is mix add the chopped cherries and gently incorporate them into the mix.
Prepare your mini bundt molds with oil and flour or cocoa (that's what I used) Fill them up 3/4 of the way and bake according to the instructions 14-18 minutes.
Once done cool them off for 10 minutes before removing them from the mold. Place in a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
In the meantime prepare the glaze by placing the chopped chocolate in a bowl.
Under medium heat, bring the cream to a boil and add it to the chopped chocolate and add butter too. Whisk everything until smooth and let it cool for a few minutes before pouring a little on each mini bundt. Once they are covered place the decorative edible bones in the center of the mini bundt. The "pot" should look like it's full of them so be generous with each one.
Serve, scare and enjoy.
