Directions

1
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
2
Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time. Mix in the chocolate syrup and vanilla. Add the flour and coffee granules and mix until just combined. Don't over beat, or the cupcakes will be tough
3
Scoop the batter into the muffin cups and bake for 30 minutes, or until just set in the middle. Don't over bake! Let cool thoroughly in the muffin pan.
4
For the ganache, cook the heavy cream, chocolate chips, and instant coffee in the top of a double boiler over simmering water until smooth and warm, stirring occasionally.
5
Dip the tops of the cupcakes into the ganache. Do not refrigerate.
