Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients for cupcakes
  2. bake at 350 F for 20 minutes
  3. melt chocolate, coconut oil, stevia and 1.5 tsp vanilla in a shallow sauce pan on stove
  4. once melted keep on burner and add in cream and remaining .5 tsp vanilla
  5. cook while stirring for 10 minutes on low heat
  6. let cool
  7. top cupcakes with frosting and we added a few sprinkles

These had good reviews other than the frosting being pretty bitter. That's great if you love dark chocolate thought. Everybody loved the actual cupcake part though. Very filling.
