Darkest Dreams (Bitter Sweet) Protein CupCakes

For my boyfriends birthday I decided to try to come up with a special treat for him. On this page, you will find the results of the treat haha. These are a bitter sweet, moist, cakey little thang. Very rich in flavor with a subtle hint of peanut butter, thanks to the frosting!!

And only 141 Calories per cup cake with 23C 3F 9P

I was very happy with how they baked and turned out. The cup cakes almost come out of the oven with a shimmer to them, they truly are beautiful to look at. I loved pairing the darkness of the cupcake with chocolate frosting, the two items are very similar in tone so I was please with the monochromatic vibes.

I did use Dark Cocoa Powder for both the batter and frosting, which is who you can hold accountable for the deep and rich colors of these cupcakes, but is also to blame for the bitter sweet taste. I personally am one to enjoy bitter sweet chocolate so these where a great alternative for switching up the the usual cavity flavored cup cake.

Whats in the bowl…

For your frosting, combine all dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Begin to work in the wet ingredients one at a time. Mix until smooth and fluffly. Wait until cupcakes are cooled to frost.

* For a sweeter frosting, trying adding 2 tbs of Pyure Stivia!
I just simply used a butter knife to blog out equal amounts of the frosting onto the cupcakes and spread the frosting high.
