  Chocolate Dipping Sauce
one bag of chocolate chips melted in microwave (check every 30 seconds and stir until smooth)
you can add milk for a smoother consistency)

 1. In a separate medium bowl, combine both flours and whisk to combine, set aside.
2. In the bowl of your standing mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter on medium speed until very smooth. Gradually add in the sugar and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating very well after each one.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, banana puree, and vanilla extract.
5. Adding the dry ingredients in three parts, alternating with the banana mixture. With each addition,  just beat until barely combined. Scrape down sides of the bowl when needed. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Cook cupcakes in tins for 15 minutes, then remove from tins and cool 
 1. Cream together butter,  vanilla, with electric mixer for about 1 minute.
2. Mixing on low, add sugar 1/2 C at a time, mix completely after each addition. Add milk to desired consistency.
1. To stuff cupcakes, create a well in center of each cupcake . Fill well with custard filling (using a spoon or piping bag).

3. Dip top of cupcakes into chocolate sauce, the immediately rim with sprinkles. Return cupcakes immediately to freezer for about 5 minutes.
4. With a star tip, pipe the  the frosting onto each chocolate-covered cupcake and immediately garnish with a maraschino cherry (make sure cherry has no dripping juices, dry on a towel).
The recipe I initially used was from but I made it more simple by tweeking the custard to instant pudding and making the dipping sauce more simple .
