Lexi’s Gluten-free, Dairy-free Knock-off Cream-filled Chocolate Cupcakes (Guest Post by Super Lexi)

Post2PhotoBefore I got allergic to everything I ever liked, these cupcakes were my favorite meal of all time. They are actually delicious, which is how come I had to invent this recipe. One of your parents has to help, on account of you’ll probably get bored halfway through and walk away.

 

We bring these cupcakes to parties, because even the kids that aren’t allergic to stuff think they taste spectacular. That’s an actual fact.

 

Ingredients

Cupcakes

1 box Betty Crocker Gluten-free Devil’s Food cake mix
3 eggs
Water
½ cup Earth Balance butter or Ghee (softened)

 

Chocolate Ganache (that’s the grown-up word for the chocolate stuff that peels off the top)

1 10 oz bag Enjoy Life chocolate chips  
1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk

 

Delicious, Creamy, Marshmallow-y Filling

4 Tbs Spectrum shortening
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbs full-fat coconut milk
1 cup of the best food on Planet Earth, Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Crème or Ricemellow if you’re allergic to food dyes.

 

Squiggly Icing to go on Top

4 Tbs Spectrum shortening
1 Tbs any vegan milk
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp vanilla

 

Directions

1. Make the Cupcakes

Preheat the oven according to the directions in the box. Put 15 cupcake cups in your pan, on account of you’ll have more than the box says. Follow the directions on the box, but use Earth Balance butter or ghee instead of butter. Fill your cups ¾ of the way full on account of they grow. This stuff smells delicious but don’t sneak a taste on account of the raw eggs will make you barf. Let them cool for a while before you squirt anything into them.

 

2. Make the delicious, creamy, marshmallow-y filling.

While the cupcakes cool, beat the butter with beaters. Throw in ½ cup of powdered sugar. Add vanilla, and half the coconut milk. Alternate like that until the sugar and coconut milk are all used up. Then add the delicious marshmallow cream and sneak a little with your finger so you can taste the best ingredient on Planet Earth. Beat it until it’s perfectly smooth & stick in the fridge until you’re ready to squirt it.

 

3. Make the chocolate stuff that peels of the top (ganache)

Have a grown-up cook the coconut milk until it’s super hot, then pour it all over the chocolate chips. Stir it all up until it’s smooth and very delicious. Also, sneak some of this with your finger. Leave this stuff on the counter until you’re ready to splat it all over the cupcakes.

 

4. Squirt the delicious, creamy, marshmallow-y filling into the cupcakes

If you have a cupcake corer this is the time to use it. Not everybody has one of those things, though. .I don’t. I just use a pastry bag with a star tip. (You can make one with a freezer bag) Stick it into the top center of the cupcakes and squirt. Lick your fingers whenever possible, but don’t spread your germs or you’ll get in trouble.

 

5. Slather the cupcakes with the chocolate ganache stuff that goes on top

Use a frosting spreader for this. This is a very easy time to sneak tastes because it’s messy and you can say you’re cleaning your fingers.

 

6. Make the squiggle icing

Throw all the ingredients into a bowl and beat them until they turn delicious and smooth. Put it in a pastry bag with a small tip and make squiggles on your cupcakes.

 

7. Eat your delicious meal!
