    • 1/2 batch Best Low Carb Coconut Milk Chocolate Ganache

Instructions

    1. Make the chocolate ganache the night before and let it sit out on the counter until it cools. Cover with plastic wrap and let it stay on the counter until needed. If your kitchen is hot and the ganache is a little soft, adding the Swerve or powdered erythritol will “chill” it up enough while whipping. If the kitchen is cold and the ganache is hard, it will be hard to pipe onto the cupcakes. Heat it in the microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until it is soft enough to beat with a mixer.
    2. Preheat oven to 350. Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers.
    3. To make the Chocolate Crazed Espresso Cupcakes: Measure the dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together to combine and to break up any lumps. Cut the Ghirardelli chocolate into very small pieces and mix into the dry cupcake mix.
    4. Mix the wet ingredients together in a small bowl with a hand mixer.
    5. Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and mix completely with the hand mixer. Let the cupcake batter stand for a few minutes before spooning into the cupcake papers. Spoon the batter into the cupcake papers making sure to make a mound it in the middle. This helps the muffin to have a rounded top.
    6. Put the Chocolate crazed Espresso Cupcakes into the oven and turn the oven up to 400 for seven minutes. After seven minutes, turn the oven back down to 350. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting with the Whipped Ganache.
