While the thought of a vegan chocolate cupcake sounds slightly… strange, rest assured that the concept works, as long as you use the right substitutes: avocado and vegetable oil. However, the real show stopper here is the buttercream frosting. It is not vegan, but is still delicious. Consider the ingredients: unsalted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, salt, milk, peanut butter and Nutella. Yes you read that right. The one-two punch of peanuts and hazelnuts (plus a little chocolate) is what really makes the difference.
