Step 3:

Place cupcake liners on your tray. Fill each liner about half full with batter. Place inside the oven and bake at 350F for about 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Step 4:

Place milk chocolate in a bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted. Next, add 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 1 to 2 tablespoons of cocoa liqueur. Mix until well combined, then let it cool completely.

Step 5:

Once the cupcakes are done baking and cooled, make a hole in the center of each one, then fill with the chocolate mixture.
