As you may have noticed, I'm *loving* creating some fun low carb Halloween recipes right now! So when I saw these Ghost Cupcakes from Mommy Musings, I was totally inspired to create a low carb version!

These fun treats are formed from a dark chocolate cupcake base, then a soft cream cheese frosting, and finished with some low carb chocolate chips to create the ghost's eyes and mouth. They were really very quick and easy to decorate, and if you didn't want to use a piping bag you could spoon the frosting onto the cupcakes instead.

How to Make Low Carb Ghost Cupcakes

To make the yummy chocolate cupcakes, beat three eggs together in a stand mixer until well mixed. Add in some melted (but cooled) butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, almond flour, low carb sweetener (Lakanto or granular Swerve would work well), baking powder, and salt. Beat until a smooth batter has formed.Low Carb Ghost Cupcakes - perfect for Halloween! Keto, sugar free, and gluten free recipe.

Transfer the mixture into a six-hole muffin pan lined with paper liners or silicone liners. Bake in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until the center is cooked. Allow the cupcakes to cool.Low Carb Ghost Cupcakes - perfect for Halloween! Keto, sugar free, and gluten free recipe.

When they're cool, make the frosting by beating softened cream cheese and butter together. I used a hand mixer for this because my stand mixer bowl was still messy – I need to get a second one! Add in vanilla extract, and confectioner's Swerve, then beat again until smooth.Low Carb Ghost Cupcakes - perfect for Halloween! Keto, sugar free, and gluten free recipe.

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe it onto the cupcakes, making sure to end in a top point to form the top of the “ghost”. Use low carb chocolate chips (I use the mini ones from Lily's – get them from Netrition!), to make the eyes and mouth on the frosting.
