This ganache can be used as either a frosting or a cupcake filling. For a frosting, dip the tops of cupcakes into the ganache while it is still slightly warm. For a filling, chill the ganache for at least 1 to 2 hours. Then, fill each cup in a cupcake pan only half full with batter, and scoop about a teaspoon of ganache into each cup. Pour the second half of the batter over the ganache. Bake as usual according to cupcake recipe.
