Servings 2 dozen cupcakes
Calories 152kcal



  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 6 large eggs separated
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Make the cupcakes: Preheat oven to 300F. Line two 12-cup muffin tins with 20 wrappers. Set aside.
  • In a double-boiler over medium heat, melt butter and chocolate together until smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Once cooled, whisk egg yolks and sugar into chocolate and set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until egg whites reach stiff peaks. Very gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture, gently folding a few times until batter is just combined.
  • Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full of batter. Bake cupcakes at 350F 20-25 minutes or until centers are just set. Cool cupcakes on a wire cooling rack (centers are going to sink a little bit)
  • Make the glaze: In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt chocolate and milk until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in salt and vanilla.
  • To serve cupcakes, spoon glaze on top of cupcakes. Enjoy!
