Last night I decided to get creative.  I have been going HARD on the chocolate the last few days…oh to be a woman…  So, one final hoorah.  I just found out we are going to the beach in 2 weeks – ummm…not ready!!  The chocolate chips need to make their way out of my house. (And not through my belly!!!)

Some of you guys have had my chocolate chocolate chip avocado cupcakes that I won’t give the recipe to… (insert evil laugh).  So, I kind of re-created them in a little different form.  Nowwwww…that being said – I threw in a bunch of stuff and of course didn’t measure it, so I’m putting this down as I remember it.  1.  If they turn out terrible, I’m sorry.  2.  I guess this means I’ll have to make them again and adjust accordingly.  3. I’m not mad about number 2.

These turned out SO good.  They were ooey, gooey and so chocolaty.  I like to undertake mine just a little so you get a real gooey muffin/cupcake.  This one however needs no frosting.  I’m going to have give these little monsters away asap.  I need to keep thinking – beach in 2 weeks…beach in 2 weeks….  And I was so tempted to have one for breakfast this am!!  Beach in 2 weeks…

    These look fab. I made chocolate avocado cookies and they came out more like brownies. I think avocado definitely works better in cakes rather than cookies. Can’t wait to try these 🙂

      Oh girl! These are so good! I LOVE the texture of baking with avocado!! And yes, it’s definitely more of a brownie/cupcake/muffin texture, but oh, so good!!! I’m hoping the recipe is right! I need to try it again to make sure. 🙂 Enjoy!
