Krystal's Virtual Baby Shower - CUPCAKE!

A little over a year ago I participate in my very first virtual shower for my friend Krystal. I made a Cuban cake in honor of little Cookie. Well a year later we are having another virtual shower for Krystal as they are about to welcome Cupcake! The theme for this virtual shower is CUPCAKE. lol I was trying to figure out what kind of cupcakes I should make and each time I came up with some thing someone else had picked it. Well luckily Pinterest helped me in a big way this time. 

My readers know I have been trying to avoid sugar and carbs. I found a recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes. Hey at least I am avoiding one of the items - flour. I also can share these cupcakes with  my future son in law since he can only eat gluten free products. When I bake I like to share them with people. 

I am so excited for Krystal to welcome little Cupcake into the world! Cupcake is going to be such a handsome little man and a lucky little brother to Elena. Eric and Krystal are such amazing parents to Elena. It has been very exciting to watch their family grow and see them as parents. 

Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

3/4 cup butter
1.5 cups chocolate chips
6 eggs
1/2 cup sugar

In a double boiler melt the butter and chocolate. Separate egg whites and yolks. Let chocolate and butter mixture start to cool and then add in yolks. Beat egg whites until peaks start to form. Gradually add in the sugar and beat until eggs form stiff peaks and glossy. Whisk some of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and then mix egg whites into the entire chocolate mixture stirring slowly. Bake at 275 for 25 minutes.
