Sugar-Free French Fudge Cupcakes

The cupcakes are an amazingly dense and fudgey kind of chocolate brownie. It’s a virtually flourless recipe. The chocolate cashew icing was sugar-free and dreamy as can be! Yum!

Ingredients:
8 oz. sugar-free chocolate bar, like Lily’s 
1 1/2 oz. (3 squares) unsweetened chocolate bar
10 tbsp. butter 1 1/2 cup Z-sweet (granulated)
6 tbsp. flour
3 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
4 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (Lily’s makes these as well!)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Butter cupcake pan.
2. Melt sugar-free (or semi-sweet if you have to) chocolate bar, unsweetened chocolate bar, and butter over low heat.
3. In mixing bowl, mix Z-sweet, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt until blended.
4. Add flour until just mixed.
5. Add the melted chocolate to the remaining ingredients.
6. Add chocolate chips.
7. Bake 18-22 minutes.  Tops of cupcakes should look done, but toothpick inserted should come out with streaks of chocolate

FROSTING:
2 cups raw cashews
3/4 cup water (more when needed)
unsweetened cocoa powder
vanilla
powdered Z-sweet
cinnamon
**This is an imprecise formula.  Just keep adding/mixing in Vita-Prep until you get the taste and consistency you want.
