Serves: 24 cupcakes
Ingredients
For the brownies:
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (or your favorite sweetener)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
Assembling:
  • 2 pints So Delicious Dairy FreeĀ® Simply Strawberry Frozen Dessert, softened
For the chocolate ganache:
  • 6 ounces (about 1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips (vegan)
  • ¾ cup full fat coconut milk
  • Fresh strawberries, for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line (2) standard muffin pans with foil liners.
  2. Prepare the flax eggs. In a small bowl, combine the flaxseed meal and water. Let stand 2 minutes.
  3. Melt the coconut oil and place in a medium bowl. Add the flax eggs, sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and stir just until incorporated.
  5. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of batter in each muffin cup and spread the batter to the edges with the back of the tablespoon. Bake in the middle rack of the oven for about 8 minutes, turning the pans halfway through to ensure even baking. Cool completely on wire racks.
Assemble the cupcakes:
  1. Place about 2 tablespoons of the So Delicious Dairy FreeĀ® Simply Strawberry Frozen Dessert over each brownie and spread to the edges with the back of the tablespoon. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for about 1 hour.
Prepare the ganache:
  1. Fill a large saute pan with water about 2" full. Heat over medium heat until simmering, then reduce the heat to low.
  2. Place the chocolate chips and coconut milk in a medium heat proof bowl. Place the bowl in the simmering water and stir with a rubber scraper constantly until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is emulsified, about 3 minutes. Let the ganache stand at room temperature to cool slightly.
  3. Top each frozen cupcake with the desired amount of ganache and a fresh strawberry. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
The foil liners are necessary to hold up to the frozen dessert as well as to keep the brownies from sticking.
It's ok to top the cupcakes with the ganache and place them back in the freezer until ready to serve! Store leftover cupcakes in a zip top freezer bag in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
Store leftover ganache in an airtight container in the refrigerator and heat before serving.
