- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small mixing bowl, blend the eggs, maple syrup, coconut milk, palm shortening, and vanilla extract with a hand mixer.
- In a separate large mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, salt, baking powder, and cocoa powder.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and blend until the batter is smooth.
- Pour the batter into a lined cupcake pan, and bake for 35 minutes.
- Allow the cupcakes to cool. Then, remove the center of each cupcake with an apple corer or a cupcake plunger.
- Save the tops of the cupcakes for sealing the filling before frosting.
- Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat.
- Add half the bag of raspberries, 1/4 cup of water, the maple syrup, and the lemon juice to the pan.
- Stir all ingredients, and bring the liquid to a low boil.
- Whisk the arrowroot into the mixture, and continue to boil until the arrowroot has fully dissolved and the filling starts to thicken.
- Once the filling has a jelly-like consistency, remove the pan from the burner, and allow the liquid to cool.
- Stir in the remaining raspberries, and fill each cupcake with enough of the raspberry filling to reach the top of the cupcake. Seal each with the tops.
- In a small saucepan, heat the cream and butter over medium heat.
- Bring the cream and butter mixture to a boil while swirling them around to combine the ingredients.
- Pour the chocolate chips into a medium-sized bowl.
- Pour the cream and butter over the chocolate chips, and stir until the chocolate melts and the sauce thickens.
- Allow the mixture to cool, and pour it over the cupcakes.
- Serve immediately, or refrigerate the cupcakes before serving to harden the frosting slightly.
