Makes 12 muffins | Prep 45 minutes
- 125 ml (½ cup) maple syrup
- 125 g butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 250 g (2 ½ cups) light spelt flour
- 4 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 100 g (½ cup) dark chocolate chips
- 100 ml (½ cup) milk
- 140 g (1 cup) dates, soaked
- 60 g (½ cup) almonds
- 60 g (½ cup) cashews
- 15 g (¼ cup) desiccated coconut
- 25 g (⅓ cup) raw cacao powder pinch of salt
- 125 ml (½ cup) whipping cream
Preheat oven to 170 C and line a muffin tray with We Might Be Tiny cupcake cases.
In a large bowl cream together the butter and sweetener with a handheld mixer for
2-3 minutes. Add the eggs and cream again for another 5 minutes.
Then add flour, cacao powder, and baking powder. Mix for another 5 minutes before adding the chocolate chips and stirring through by hand.
Pour batter evenly into the cupcake cases and bake 12-15 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before decorating.
Place all ingredients into a high-speed food processor and blitz until well combined and a sticky dough is formed.
Take small amounts of the mixture and shape into small ovals for faces and even smaller ovals for ears. Best prepared ahead of time and allowed to firm up in fridge before placing on top of cupcakes.
Using a hand-held mixer, whisk cream until thickened and ready for piping. Add to piping cone and pipe out evenly onto each cupcake. When ready to serve, carefully place sheep ‘faces’ and ‘ears’ on top.
