Easter Apple-Chocolate Muffins - Gluten free, dairy free
Hello Spring! Nature is waking up, snow is melting and Easter is coming up! 
How about making these cute apple and chocolate chips muffins for the occasion? They are topped with a dairy free chocolate ganache, simply made of dark chocolate and plant-based cream.

I pipped the ganache on each muffin then sprinkled toasted coconut, to mimic a bird nest. I garnished the nest with couple of pastel chocolate eggs and voilà!
