Boston Creme Cupcakes

Today is my Divingabe's birthday. I would bake anything for him, but unfortunately he's not into sweets. He does love French Apple Pie but July just doesn't cut it for fresh apples, it's a fall recipe. Boston Cream Pie is something he has mentioned so I found this very good recipe.

If you can eat just one of these you have self-control, they are that good. I'll make them again but not going to wait for a special occasion.

1 1/4 cups cold whole milk
1 (3.4-ounce) box vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
12 pre-made cupcakes baked from a cake mix
1 cup heavy cream
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels
1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted

1. Combine milk, instant pudding mix, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Beat mixture with a hand mixer for 2 minutes, or until it thickens.
2. Place mixture in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Spoon filling into a pastry bag fitted with a medium-size plain tip.
3. Fill cupcakes with vanilla pudding filling by inserting tip into to top of cupcake and squeezing a couple of tablespoons of filling into each cupcake.
4. Heat cream in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat until bubbles appear around the edges. Remove from heat, add chocolate morsels to pan, and whisk until smooth. Spoon or drizzle glaze over cupcakes, or dunk the tops into the glaze.
5. Refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour, before serving.
