Ingredients

Unprepared white cake mix

18¼ oz

Water

1 cup(s)

Unsweetened applesauce

cup(s)

Egg(s)

3 large

Pudding

1 cup(s), chocolate, prepared with skim milk

Semi-sweet chocolate chips

½ cup(s)

Fat-free cream cheese

½ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 48 mini muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. To make cupcakes, beat together cake mix, water, applesauce and eggs at low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes more. Spoon batter into lined cupcake cups.
  3. Bake cupcakes for 5 minutes. Drop a teaspoon of pudding into the centre of each cupcake. Bake for 13 minutes more and cool for at least 30 minutes.
  4. To make icing, create a double boiler: Boil water in a small saucepan and then reduce heat to simmer. Put chocolate chips in a small metal bowl and set bowl over simmering water; stir until chocolate melts. Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese; blend until smooth.
  5. Top each cooled cupcake with 1 teaspoon of icing. Yields 1 cupcake per serving.
