Today's my dad's birthday. He's impossibly hard to buy for on a normal year but this year when he and my mom are working to downsize their home; he's even harder. While brainstorming things he liked my friend posted a link to a cupcake with a peanut butter truffle in the middle on my facebook page. An idea started to smolder. My dad loves buckeyes. He loves them so much it's the only thing he asks for from me at Christmas each year. What if I made a buckeye cupcake? I already have the Martha Stewart Marble Pound Cake with White Chocolate Glaze in the oven that he handpicked for his birthday. But I have a few hours still. I have all the ingredients to make buckeyes. I have a box of chocolate cake mix. Not ideal but maybe with some additions...
|Since I was dealing with box mix I substituted whole milk for the water and added in some chocolate fudge sauce.|
|I froze the buckeye centers before dropping them in the batter. They were warm all the way through but not melted. Yum!|
