  3. Fill each muffin pan 3/4 way full. Note: I use a large bakery style muffin pan, which produces 6 large cupcakes. If you use a regular muffin pan- bake for less time (about 20-25 minutes on 350F or until a knife when inserted comes out clean). I bake the large bakery style cupcakes on 350F for 30 minutes.
  4. In a double boiler melt ingredients for frosting and whisk until smooth. Transfer frosting to fridge or freezer for 15-30 minutes until it reaches a fluffy spreadable consistency. If the frosting becomes too hard, use a hair dryer and whisk while heating until it becomes spreadable again.
  5. Frost cupcakes. Optional: top with natural sprinkles or mini chocolate chips.

Ingredients Cake Frosting Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a 5" by 8" pan (I used a casserole dish, you could use a different size, just watch the cooking time) with parchment paper. 
  2. In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients for the cake batter until smooth, then pour into the cake pan, and bake on 350F for 25-35 minutes (you will know the cake is done when a knife inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean). Allow cake to cool before frosting.
  3. Heat the coconut milk for the frosting in a small saucepan over medium heat on the stove until warm, but not boiling. Then take it off the heat and add chocolate chips. Let the chocolate chips soak in the coconut milk until melted then stir until combined. Add salt and whisk. Place frosting into the fridge, stir on occasion, and let it chill until the frosting becomes semi-stiff, but still creamy and spreadable (about 1/2 hour).
  4. Once the frosting is formed, spread over the cake, slice, and serve. You can make chocolate shavings for decor by melting chocolate chips, spreading the melted chocolate over the back of a baking tray, cooling in the freezer for about 4 minutes, then scraping off into spirals with a large metal spatula.

Caramel Instructions
  1. In a small sauce pan over medium/low heat combine all ingredients for the caramel. Stir and let it bubble for 2-4 minutes. Transfer to a small plate lined with parchment paper. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes until solid. Then cut into 1/4" squares.
  2. In a double boiler melt chocolate and butter (or palm shortening) together over low heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine, flour, sugar, eggs, and salt, then stir in the melted chocolate and butter. Pour batter into a 8" by 8" square baking dish lined with parchment paper.

Bake on 350F for 35-40 minutes (more or less for more cakey or gooey), then remove and cool for 15-20 minutes to solidify, they will crumble if you don't let them cool. (you can place brownies in the freezer for 10 minutes to speed up the cooling process).
  5. Sprinkle with remaining caramel squares and sea salt flakes, cut, and serve!
