Gluten free Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Rum Cupcakes


I had been wanting to make a tasty, kinda naughty and definitely boozy dessert for a while and then I decided: gluten free chocolate hazelnut rum cupcakes.

I know it’s a mouthful, but just keep repeating it and it will become a mantra, a meditation even.



And you could do so while making them, which is super easy and gratifying.

With the same doses you can make a cake too, it surely is a great mix of flavours for some special *coughsexycough* occasion *wink wink*

I really hope you will make these gluten free vegan boozy cupcakes and I’d love to know what you think of them!
