One way to show some love ….

I made these yummy treats for my husband!

 Directions 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease muffin pans then lined with parchment paper muffin liners 

Follow instructions on the box.

Basically adding all ingredients to the mix.

I substituted coconut oil and I added extra flavor 

with using the Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion.  

I first added the boiling water to the mix. Using my hand mixer I blended until it was all combined then I added the remaining ingredients all together and mix on medium high for 30 seconds.

(Don’t over mix batter)

Note: Batter will be runny  

I’m using an ice cream scoop to fill each cupcake liner

  so they all come out the same size, 

bake for 25-30 minutes…

or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Let the cupcakes cool on rack.

While the cupcakes cool I made the Non-buttercream Icing

I mixed the Nutiva butter spread with the 2 pkg of Truvia and vanilla.

Next I added the powder sugar with then incorporating the almond milk to thin out the icing. 

Frost the cupcakes 

&

 Enjoy !!!

(I like alot of icing!!!)
