For the cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the sugar, the vanilla extract, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 3-4 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one by one and, once they are homogenized, stop the mixer. Wait for each egg to be incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the flour, the cocoa powder, the baking powder, the salt, the milk, and beat for 10 seconds.
  • Transfer to a pastry bag and fill a 12-cup muffin pan, after placing cupcake liners inside the cups.

For the Italian meringue

  • In a pot add the water, the sugar, and boil until it reaches 116ο C (240ο F).
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the egg whites, the salt, the vanilla extract, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, until the mixture firms up and becomes a thick meringue.
  • Transfer the syrup into the mixer’s bowl very slowly (in a steady stream) without stopping the mixer, and keep beating for 4-5 minutes until the mixture’s temperature drops.
  • Transfer to a pastry bag with a round tip and set it aside.

To assemble

  • Remove the cupcake liners and use a knife to make a small hole at the top of the cupcakes. 
  • Divide the dulce de leche among them, cover with the meringue, and refrigerate them for 2 hours to cool.
  • Dip into the melted chocolate until the meringue is covered and set aside to set.
  • Serve with the white chocolate couverture.
