A friend made a point about this recipe asking “How can such a weird vegetable taste so good as a dessert?” Well, I admit that I do happen to love avocados more that most, but I also get his point. Some of you reading this may think that there is no way this could be good. Some of you may be curious enough to be willing to try. Others of you are reading this with great excitement and copying down the recipe right now! But no matter how eager or skeptical you are, you should absolutely make these avocado chocolate cupcakes with avocado frosting to find out how good they really do taste! Then bask in the glory of having made them so much healthier!  Enjoy.
