Frosted White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes






     Frosted White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes are my new best friend!!!  Not just because they taste fantastic and make me smile when I look at them, but wait til you hear the stats on these ruby beauties~ per cupcake with Flower and Tablespoon of frosting is 89 calories, 3g net carbs, and 10.4g protein.  Aren't you dying for a bite!!!???  This recipe makes 12 cupcakes, or in my experience what I refer to as breakfast, lunch and dinner... and afternoon snack  ...  ;)

Ingredients for Protein Frosting Flowers~
1 White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar, torn into pieces
1/4 cup 30 cal/cup Almond Milk, found at Vitacost.com
Pink Food Coloring

     Mix Quest Bar pieces and Milk and microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir til smooth, add food color and continue stirring, pour into flower candy mold and place in freezer til solid.  Pop out when ready.  Won't stay frozen long, so use as needed. Decorate with a dot of yellow dyed protein frosting in the middle if desired.  Protein Frosting in recipe below.
