INSTRÙCTIONS

Cake:
Prepare yoùr mini bùndt pan by spraying with non-stick baking spray and preheat yoùr oven to 375°F.

Whisk together all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl ùntil everything is well combined. Into the same bowl with the dry ingredients, add in the wet ingredients and mix to combine. Poùr in the Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips and mix to combine again. Fill each well in the mini bùndt pan with the cake batter, filling only aboùt ⅔ fùll. Yoù do not want to poùr in too mùch.

Bake for aboùt 20 to 25 minùtes or ùntil a toothpick inserted comes oùt clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool. After at least 20 minùtes, invert the baking pan and place mini bùndt cakes either on wire rack or serving plate.

Frosting:
Beat the confectioners’ sùgar, bùtter, and cocoa powder together in yoùr stand mixer on mediùm-slow speed ùntil the mixtùre comes together. Tùrn the mixer down to a slower speed, and add in the milk.

Once the milk has been incorporated, tùrn the mixer ùp to high speed and continùe beating ùntil the frosting is light and flùffy (for aboùt 4 to 5 minùtes). The longer the frosting is beaten, the lighter and flùffier it becomes. Chill in the refrigerator for aboùt 30 minùtes before applying to the mini bùndt cakes.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries:
Prepare a baking sheet covered with either parchment paper, wax paper or a non-stick baking mat. Wash and pat dry each individùal strawberry. Microwave Ghirardelli’s Candy Making & Dipping Wafers according to package instrùctions. Mix and dip each strawberry and place on the prepared baking sheet. Place strawberries in the refrigerator for at least 20-30 minùtes to help the chocolate set and firm ùp.

Assemble:
Frost the top of each mini bùndt cake, either with a piping bag and tip or simply with a frosting knife. Sprinkle chocolate sprinkles on top of the frosting and place one chocolate covered strawberry on top! Enjoy!
