  1. A nice change of pace from creating a Boston Cream Pie as a whole. I used the silicone liners instead of paper and they worked great with these cupcakes. I also used semi-sweet chocolate chips for the topping as that is what I had on hand. Made exactly 24 mini pies! Thanks V! Made for the Zaar Cookbook Tag Game '08.
  2. This was great.. I would make cupcakes without liners next time.. I think an attractive presentation would be to arrange the finished cupcakes in a circle on a plate- to form a ring. I also think the recipe would be just fine making in round cake pans. Very easy and impressive.. I used some choc chips in lieu of the choc squares.
  3. These are soooooo yummy! I couldn't stop eating the darned things!! They take a little time to make but it's worth it. Despite all the tinkering, the pies hold together quite well once refrigerated. I especially love the chocolate ganache-like frosting!
  4. So easy to make. Everyone requests these all of the time. Just the right size when you want something sweet. So, so good!!!! Joan from Ohio
  5. i was looking to see if anyone had posted these before i did, wonderful treat and very easy to make
