This is another great Hungry Girl recipe that I wanted to share with you all. My sister made these for me last week and also a few weeks before that. She knows I just love them and I don't have to feel guilty eating them. This recipe is seriously so simple with just a few ingredients and so inexpensive is you purchase your ingredients at Aldi and Walmart. The best part is that they only have 108 calories per cupcake. How awesome is that?
Death By Chocolate Cupcakes
Hungry Girl "Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World"
2 Cups moist-style chocolate cake mix (1/2 of an 18.25-ounce box)
Two 25 calorie packets diet hot cocoa mix
1/2 cup fat free liquid egg substitute
2 Tablespoons semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1 tsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/8 teaspoon salt
Place chocolate chips and the contents of both cocoa packets in a tall glass. Add 12 ounces of boiling water and stir until chips and cocoa mix have dissolved. Place glass in the freezer to chill for 25 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Once cocoa has chilled, give it a stir and mix with all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whip batter with a whisk or fork for 2 minutes.
Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with nonstick spray or line it with baking cups. Evenly spoon batter (which will be thin, but don't worry-your cupcakes will puff up!) into the pan. Place pan in the oven and bake it for 15 minutes. Cupcakes will look shiny when done.

I have found that they are best either served cold from the fridge or with Redi-Whip on them. You can't go wrong with these cupcakes!
