Guiltless Chocolate Bliss Cupcakes

This cupcake is very quick to prepare and a delicious guilt-free dessert option.  The cake is adapted from a Weight Watcher’s recipe and the frosting is adapted from Dashing Dish.   I could eat a bowl of this frosting by itself (kind of tastes like rich chocolate mousse……so good!!!)  Enjoy~



Ingredients for cupcakes:
1 box chocolate cake mix (I prefer the organic mixes like Arrowhead mills)
1 15oz can organic pumpkin
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


Mix all ingredients together.  Batter will be thick.  Pour into paper lined cupcake tins sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.  *Makes 12 large cupcakes.


For frosting:
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup cocoa powder
8 packets stevia in the raw or truvia (or a little more to taste)
2 tbsp instant chocolate pudding mix
1 small tub light cool whip (or truwhip for a healthier option)


Put cottage cheese, stevia and cocoa powder into a food processor or Vitamix.  Blend until smooth and creamy for 2-3 minutes (you must do it this long to achieve a smooth and creamy texture).  Stir in pudding mix until blended and fold in cool whip.  Pipe or spread onto cooled cupcakes and serve.  Store in the refrigerator.   So delicious!!
