Decadent Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

I shared this recipe in a guest post a week ago on Keeping It Real Food, and figured I’d put it up here as well to make sure you all get the chance to see, try, and taste these treats! I’ve mentioned before that I very much enjoy a piece (or pieces, or truffles, or an entire bar) of good dark chocolate, but that I’m not much for chocolate baked goods. That’s why most of my recipes focus on fruit or peanut butter or plain cinnamon and vanilla flavors, and I throw in dark chocolate chips and such for an extra treat. However, plenty of my friends are chocolate cupcake and cookie lovers. This led to the creation of my Cocoa-Chocolate-Chip Cuppins, and recently, to these gluten free dark chocolate cupcakes.

They’re decadent in their dark chocolate flavor, but light and airy in texture, like little chocolate cupcake clouds. They pair great with a basic vanilla cream cheese frosting, or with a peanut butter topping. And best of all, they’re gluten-free, nut-free, and can be adjusted to be dairy-free – but they managed to fool a few people who don’t normally deign to taste test my allergy-avoiding morsels of deliciousness!

Do you prefer plain dark chocolate, or chocolate baked treats?

  1. White chocolate is actually my favorite, which is kinda saddening because it’s the one with basically zero benefits (sigh…). I’ve been learning to like dark chocolate though, so this looks super good! :]
