White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Cupcakes

 
For the cake:

1 box white cake mix

3 eggs

1/3 cup oil

3/4 cup buttermilk

2/3 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon clear vanilla

Raspberry pie filling

White Chocolate Ganache:

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

3-4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

Raspberry Cream Cheese Buttercream:

1 cup butter, softened

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup smashed raspberries

4-5 cups powdered sugar

Raspberries for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with 24 muffin liners.

Mix cake mix with eggs, oil, buttermilk, sour cream and vanilla until smooth. Scoop batter into muffin tins about 3/4 full. Spoon a teaspoon of raspberry pie filling onto the top of each cupcake. Take a toothpick and swirl the filling into the batter.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let sit for about 5 minutes and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Place white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring inbetween until melted & smooth. Add the heavy whipping cream until it's about the consistency of a heavy syrup.

Dip the tops of each cupcake in the ganache. Lightly scrape off any excess so it doesn't run down the sides of your cupcake. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes to help it set up.

For the frosting; cream the butter and cream cheese for about 2-3 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the mashed raspberries & mix to combine. Add teh powdered sugar a cup at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Pipe onto cupcakes & top with a fresh raspberry.
