Boston Creme

I have made these Boston Creme Cupcakes for a few years now and they are always a favorite. I've had many requests for the recipe, so here it is.

Surprising how easy they are, huh?
12 vanilla cupcakes, baked and cooled
1 1/4 cups cold whole milk
1 (3.4-ounce) box vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix (I like Trader Joe's brand)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels

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. Place mixture in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Spoon filling into a pastry bag fitted with a medium-size plain tip. Fill cupcakes with vanilla pudding filling by inserting tip into top of cupcake and squeezing a couple of tablespoons of filling into each cupcake.

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. Refrigerate until set, at least 1 hour, before serving.

Those look delicious. Sam was just telling me how much he loves Boston Cream Pie. I'll have to make these as an alternative.
