I mixed the pudding in with the cake mix and baked the cake like the directions called for...then I made up the "ganache" type filling for the middle. I melted 1 box of the Baker's Semi Sweet squares over medium heat with 1/4-1/2 cup heavy whipping cream until it all melted together and became creamy. Then I poured it into a bowl and stuck it into the fridge for a half hour or so.
When the chocolate was hard enough, I scooped it out with a tablespoon and dropped it in the middle of my little cupcakes...(I used a mini cheesecake tin).
I baked them at 350 for the lenght it said on the box...which I think was about 20-22 minutes. Then I took them out of the pans to cool for just a few minutes, while I heated up the remaining chocolate in the microwave. (Make sure you heat it slowly...otherwise it will scorch) After it was all melted, I placed a Lavacup and a scoop of ice cream on everyone's plate...then topped with melted chocolate! I see I was overly excited to eat it...so I guess I left out the shot of the ice cream. I guess if you want to see what it looks like, you'll have to try it out for yourself! What a bummer;)
So if you're in the mood for something chocolatey...this definitely does the trick!
