Chocolate Beet Cupcakes

A secret ingredient makes the difference (but don't tell anyone)

Can't BEET these cupcakes! 

Chocolate-Beet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting – perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day for that matter!

Hidden veggies work really well with gluten-free baking because they add moistness to the cake.  In this case, the secret ingredient — puréed beets!– are in the cupcake and the frosting —  don’t you love the AWESOME color?  No need to tell anyone (although you’ll be tempted) because you can’t taste the beets; And no one will guess they’re gluten-free. They’re soooo YUMMY!
