Keto Hostess Cupcakes
Keto hostess cupcakes are an easy to make dessert that take less than 20 minutes to bake. This iconic snack cake is portion controlled and only makes two cupcakes. Hence, great for when you are craving chocolate topped sweet treats but don’t want to make a huge batch. We start with a sugar-free chocolate cupcake, fill it with a keto friendly marshmallow creme, spread a chocolate ganache over the top and top it with a white swirl of icing.
