I’ve been wanting to make these since I made the caramel a few days ago, but my MIL came to visit. We were out adventuring everyday while she was here so I never got a chance…but here they are today! Both the cupcakes and the frosting are avocado based. Strange I know, but it works I swear! So yummy, chocolatey and rich…definitely worth the wait!
