Gluten-Free Chocolate Pistachio Cupcakes :: Cupcake Monday

Our sweet contributor, Marian from Sweetopia is joining us today to share a declicious cupcake recipe with you!

From Marian:

Have I got a treat for you today! Chocolatey cupcakes with sweet, satisfying, crunchy surprises inside. Flourless chocolate pistachio cupcakes; perfect on their own for a snack, or garnished with an icing of your choice. And the best part is, the recipe for these cupcakes is flourless, gluten-free and dairy free! {The icing is not, but the great part is that these taste amazing without the icing – I just felt like decorating cupcakes for a back to school theme}

It may come as a surprise that someone with a blog named, Sweetopia, be concerned about such things, but the truth is, although I do love my sweets, for the most part I try to eat well, and if a dessert I find, like this one, is pleasing to my palate and healthy, I’m thrilled about the discovery. And I hope you will be too.

Back to School Apple Themed Cupcakes

For a fun, back to school theme, garnish these cupcakes, either with or without icing, with a little marzipan apple. So easy to make; I just colored and rolled some marzipan into a ball, dusted it with some red petal dust, made a hole with a toothpick and inserted a small brown, marzipan stem. For a little added glitz, dip the stems in copper disco dust.

I couldn’t help but think about one of my favorite books, Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, while I was making them, and The TomKat Studios’s sweet, green & red  polka dot cupcake liners matched perfectly too. Kim’s also got simply adorable Back to School Printables I was looking forward to using.

Hope you enjoy some back to school baking fun!

xo, Marian
