This post is sponsored in partnership Oster brand.  The Hand Mixer with HEATSOFT Technology blows a gentle warm air as it mixes. The HEATSOFT Technology softens butter 12x faster by using gentle warm air to bring cold butter to room temperature quickly while mixing, for fluffier results.

Compared to leaving butter out on the counter for 30 minutes​, I found this much easier than waiting for butter to come to room temperature on the counter. As always, all opinions expressed are my own. Thank you to the Oster brand for their Hand Mixer with HEATSOFT Technology and for continuing to make Peanut Butter Plus Chocolate possible.

How to make this recipe?

These cupcakes chocolate hazelnut cupcakes are so easy to make and they come together rather quickly. One thing I did that I highly recommend is to sift your dry ingredients together before adding them to the wet. It will help to combine the batter easily and remove the large chunks from the hazelnut flour.

  • hazelnut flour/meal
  • granulated sweetener or granulated erythritol for keto
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • baking soda and sea salt
  • eggs
  • coconut oil, melted
  • almond milk
  • vanilla extract

The Oster Hand Mixer with HEATSOFT Technology takes some of the stress out of making the frosting.  More often than not, I forget to take my butter out of the fridge to soften to room temperature. This mixer does the work of softening the butter as you beat it, resulting in soft and fluffy butter that’s perfect for frosting!

  • dairy free butter
  • organic powdered sugar or powdered erythritol for keto
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • almond milk
  • vanilla extract
  • chopped hazelnuts and chocolate shavings for topping
