Devils food Cupcakes!

I wanted to make a healthier cupcake, so I figured I would start with dark chocolate since thats supposed to be better for you, even though I really dont like it!  I used a box cake mix, substituted the oil for apple sauce.  The box mix made 24 cupcakes.  For the icing you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup splenda
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/3 cup 1% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
 Begin with the frosting to give it time to cool.  Mix together in a saucepan the splenda and cocoa.  Once its mixed together add 1/2 of the milk until there are no more lumps, then add the rest of the milk.  Cook on medium heat until it begins to boil  Remove from heat and allow to cool for 3 minutes.  Add the vanilla and then the chocolate chips, mix until completely dissolved.  Set aside until the cupcakes are ready to frost.

Now bake the cupcakes at the directions state (mine stayed in the oven for 20 minutes).  Once the cupcakes cool, dip the top in the icing.  Voila!  A healthier cupcake!
