Blue Cheese Dip and Dressing

 Ingredients:
Cupcakes

  • 1 ½ cups unbleached white flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened baking cocoa
  • ¼ cup Leora’s Herbal Cacao Elixir with Turmeric, Cinnamon, Maca, and Black pepper
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup vegan butter, softened to room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated cane sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup almond milk mixed with 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (to make vegan buttermilk)
  • 2 Tbsp ground chia seeds, mixed with 6 Tbsp water (to make vegan eggs)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Frosting

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (7.05 oz) pkg Violife Just Like Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature
  • ¼ cup vegan butter, softened to room temperature
  • ¼ cup Leora’s Herbal Cacao Elixir with Turmeric, Cinnamon, Maca, and Black pepper

 Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with baking cups.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a larger bowl, cream together vegan butter and sugars until fluffy. Mix in vegan buttermilk, chia eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended.
  4. Stir in flour mixture until just combined, do not overmix. Batter will be thick.
  5. Fill each baking cup about ¾ of the way full. Bake about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  6. Beat together powdered sugar, cream cheese, butter, and cocoa powder until fluffy. Frost cupcakes. If frosting becomes too soft, chill for 10 minutes in the refrigerator.

Cupcakes may be frozen up to 3 months.
