There is just the right amount of chocolate in these cupcakes, and they are ready in just 22 minutes. Serve these as directed with a dusting of powdered sugar or top them with a dollop of whipped topping and sprinkles or fresh fruit. And have fun with the flavors. Here are a few options: For chocolate peanut butter, combine 1 tablespoon of chocolate powdered peanut butter with 2 1/4 tsp water; spread over the cupcake and top with a banana slice. For strawberries and cream, top with 1 1/2 tablespoons light whipped topping and a strawberry slice. For creamy chocolate chip, top with 1 1/2 tablespoons light whipped topping and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of mini chocolate chips.
