Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare cupcake tins with nonstick baking spray.
  • Separate eggs into large small bowls; one for egg yolks and one for egg whites.
  • In a small saucepan, melt baking chocolate and dark chocolate.
  • Meanwhile, beat the egg yolks on medium-high speed until and thick, approximately 7 minutes. Reduce speed to low; add sea salt and 2/3 cup granulated sugar until mixture becomes thick and creamy, approximately 8 minutes. Add melted chocolate and cashews; continue to beat with mixer on low speed.

I'd love to try this but I can't have eggs as well. Do you know if it would work with an egg replacer? Any suggestions?? Thanks!
