What could be more summery than grill cupcakes?! Absolutely nothing.

Off The Grill Cupcakes With Gummy Kebabs [Vegan]





  • 12 cupcakes with flat frosting, I recommend this recipe, but you can use your favorite.
  • 1/2 c. vegan chocolate chips, melted
  • piping bag with twisty tie
  • parchment or wax paper
  • a variety of vegan gummies, cubes of vegan "Jell-O" or dried fruit
  • toothpicks


  1. Heat a small pot of water over the stove for 8 minutes (medium heat). When it's done remove it from the heat. Place your chocolate chips in the piping bag and, using a twisty tie, close the large end of the bag. Place it in the water for 10-15 minutes, until the chocolate chips are melted.
  2. In the mean time, cut a piece of parchment paper. You can also start to "string" your gummy kebabs. It looks better to alternate colors and textures.
  3. When you're ready to pipe your "grills", snip off the small end of the piping bag with a pair of scissors. Practice making cupcake-sized circles. Remember to make extra ones too, as some may break or not fit well. Once the circles are made, add four to five grill lines to each circle.
  4. Once you've piped all your chocolate (or run out of room), place the sheet of chocolate in the freezer until it hardens.
  5. While your chocolate grill tops are hardening, prepare your cupcakes, making sure to let them cool entirely before frosting and decorating.
  6. Assembly: gently pick up your chocolate grills from the parchment and place them on each cupcake. Add your own gummy kebabs to the grills. It's a great recipe to flex your creativity!


You can buy vegan gummies online or you can also make vegan "Jell-O" (found online or in larger health food stores) and cut it into cubes.
