- 2 c. milk
- 1 (3.4-oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix

In a small saucepan over low heat, heat heavy cream until it bubbles. Place chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl and pour over hot cream. Let stand 2 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
Let cupcakes cool slightly, then remove from muffin tin and half crosswise.
