Spread the mixture into small cylinder silicone molds (sheet of 8, 60 mm) and press down firmly to form the base.

Refrigerate while you make chickpea chocolate filling.

Filling

Blend on high speed until the mixture becomes creamy and smooth. If the mixture is too thick, you can add 2-3 tablespoons of almond milk. Adjust sweetness.

Layer the filling on top of the bases. Place the cupcakes in the fridge to set for a couple of hours or best overnight.

Avocado icing
