For the cupcakes
1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup milk (I use 2%)
2/3 cup hot water
1/2 heaping cup of Ghirardelli baking chips

For the ganache
(this is enough ganache to fill 12 cupcakes - depending on how deep you make your heart cut-out)
1/2 cup Ghirardelli baking chips
2 Tablespoons heavy cream
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a tray and a half with cupcake liners. Set aside. In a large bowl, add the flour, cocoa powder(s), sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix together...
