Who else couldn’t believe what happened during the elimination in last week’s episode of Food Network Star? (Whoa!) But drama aside, we thought many of the savory-inspired desserts for the baking challenge looked great. We especially loved Eddie’s chili corn muffins with avocado frosting. So, inspired by Eddie’s savory frosting, we put on our aprons and headed into the Food Network Kitchen to develop a recipe for you to try at home:

Guacamole “Frosting”
3 ripe avocados
1/4 white onion, chopped
1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves and tender stems
Juice of 2 limes
1 small garlic clove, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Puree all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Decorate your favorite corn muffins with the frosting — and eat quickly.
