Virtual Girls Night In.....

Silvermoon Dragon from Australia is hosting the October blog event in order to raise awareness for breast cancer. I just saw her post today and hurried to make my Reeses Nesquik cupcakes.
Pink is feminine. Chocolate is feminine - sweet, dark and addicting.
Please please please get your mamography today!

These cupcake are the easiet in the world. No need to take out the kitchenaid - just whisk everything together.

Reeses Nesquik Breast Cancer Awareness Cupcakes

1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup Nesquik
1 cup sugar
1 cup oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup cream

15 small reeses (I even found the sugarfree kind!)

15 cupcake cups

150 grams bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup cream
1 TBS. Frangelico (optional)

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, oil, cream, nesquik and eggs.
Pour about a TBS. of batter in each cup and plac a Reese cup. Fill 3/4 high with remaining batter.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes on medium heat.
Cupcakes will fall in the middle.
Melt the chocolate in a pan with the remaining cream till incorporated. Remove from heat and add the Frangelico.
Pour ganach in each cupcake.
Decorate as you please. I used those mile long bubble gums in order to make the pink ribbon.

Yum, they look great!
How much Nesquik do you use? It doesn't say in the recipe.

I think the kids and I will have to whip these up sometime soon!
