  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Add the first 8 ingredients into a food processor and process until combined.
  • Place the butter and chocolate into a microwaveable bowl or bowl set over a simmering pot of water on the stove on low heat until melted. Melt in microwave 1-2 minutes. Stir until smooth.
  • Taste batter and decide if you need more sweetener. Set aside.
  • Place the eggs, Half & Half, vanilla and stevia in a stand mixer and blend on high until combined.
  • On low speed add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in the mixer until well combined.
  • Continuing on low speed, slowly pour in the cooled, melted chocolate.
  • Grease a 12 capacity cupcake pan or use liners and spray with non stick cooking spray.
  • Evenly pour batter into each cup.
  • Bake for 22-24 minutes.
  • Cool completely then scoop out about a tablespoon from center of each cupcake to add ganche filling.

Ganache Filling:

  • Break chocolate into pieces in using a bar and place in a bowl.
  • Heat heavy cream on low heat until just boiling.
  • Pour heavy cream over chocolate and let it sit for 15 minutes. Do not stir.
  • Once time is done, stir until smooth.
  • You can add ganache to cupcakes now or wait about 30- 45 minutes and the ganache will thicken. You can then add it to a stand mixer or hand held mixer and blend on high until whipped in texture. Place into a pastry bag and fill cupcakes and frost as desired.
