What would Valentine’s Day be without some sweetness? February 14th is set aside for expressing love, appreciation, and embracing the sweeter side of life. And who is better to show some sweetness to than to…well…you? Take a moment to gift yourself with love and self-appreciation by treating yourself to something decadent. That’s right, it’s time to #SweetYourself with a bit of heavenly goodness!
This Valentine’s Day we plan to treat ourselves with homemade Red Velvet Cupcakes. The best part of the delicious treat is we can enjoy each bite without a large amount of dieter’s guilt! Even though Red Velvet Cupcakes sound awfully sinful, we reduce the calories by replacing some of the sugar called for in the recipe with Stevia In The Raw®.

*A slight adjustment to the Red Velvet Cupcakes. It says to use heart shaped silicone cups, but I just used a normal muffin tin with cupcake paper-liners. So, if you don’t have the silicone baking cups and still want to try the recipe—normal muffin tins work fine. The baking time was 13 minutes. Using the muffin tin only yields 20 cupcakes instead of the 24.
