Scharffen Berger Mini Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Just writing that title, “Scharffen Berger Mini Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes” makes my mouth water. Now imagine that I actually made these this past weekend and indulged in a few of the little gluten-free nuggets!

I have been waiting so long to make my first batch of mini gluten-free cupcakes (I have a mini cupcake obsession). I have several flavors I’m working on, but the first two I wanted to perfect were: Chocolate (go figure – my favorite) and Pumpkin (go figure – my seasonal fall food favorite).

I have been debating about “what chocolate” was going to be my secret ingredient. And then I met Scharffen Berger a couple weeks back at #TECHmunch. It was love at first bite. (I have a whole Scharffen Berger post coming this week.)

It all started on Saturday when I stumbled upon Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Mix.

From there, my love for this tiny #dailyjoy went wild! Words cannot described how much fun I had. Pictures will do it some justice!

Meanwhile, I whipped up the gluten-free chocolate cream “frosting” for them!

I give ALL my gluten-free recipes very openly and freely on my site. I love sharing them with all of you, and I’m always so excited when you tell me you try them and love them. But….

My mini gluten-free cupcake recipes I’m not ready to give out yet.

Perhaps I’m selfishly hoarding them, but I’ve got plans for them and you will eventually see them!

For today, I will give my Gluten-Free Chocolate Cream “Frosting” recipe. Note: I say “frosting” because it’s really in the style of a cream cheese topping.



  • Place all ingredients in a blender. Make sure the chocolate is grated enough, or even melted if you want. I grated most of mine and then added a few tiny chunks in at the end to spread on the mini cupcake.
  • Blend for about 2-3 minutes on low-to-medium. You want the “frosting” to get fairly thick.
  • Place on top of your mini cupcakes, or use as a #snackjoy dip for strawberries!

(Side Note: I will never be on the hunt for the best egg cream or burrito, as I’m sure you can imagine! I am on the hunt for the the best digestive-system remedy foods, the most nutritionally-packed foods for me and my clients and of course the best red wine and the best gluten-free cupcake.) [...]
