  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, combine both cocoa powders and hot coffee. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl combine buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla. Add in the coffee mixture.
  5. Add the wet to the dry and stir to combine.
  6. Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 full. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. While the cupcakes are baking, unwrap 12 lindors and keep in a bowl. When the cupcakes have baked for 10 minutes quickly put one lindor on each cupcake and press down slightly. Bake for another 8 minutes.
  8. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before decorating. For these cupcakes I use chocolate swiss meringue buttercream and drizzle the top with the left over ganache, then top with the remaining lindors. Frosting recipe has its own recipe written on this website.
