Chocolate Cupcakes with Whipped Chocolate Frosting Lower-Calorie

 

I’m the biggest chocolate lover around. Actually, I have the biggest sweet tooth around, with chocolate being a top favorite. These chocolate cupcakes fulfill both needs! The sponge is super moist and the whipped frosting is fluffy and full of chocolate flavor.  Since I love sweets and chocolate, I really enjoyed developing a recipe that gave me both.

Making the chocolate cake is so simple, and the best part is there are only 3 ingredients involved. The chocolate cake mix, vanilla Greek yogurt, and water – that’s it! It doesn’t get too much easier than that. The frosting is also simple to make. I make the frosting while the cupcakes are cooling. That’s how quickly it comes together. From start to finish these cupcakes with frosting, are ready in under 30 minutes!

 

These cupcakes make a great party dessert, for kids and adults alike. You can make this recipe into a cake if you prefer instead of cupcakes. I’ve made these for my friends and family and they are never able to tell if they’re my low-calorie treats or not. That’s when I know a recipe is a winner. It’s just as wonderful as a cupcake you’d buy in a cupcake shop. The frosting is a cream cheese-based frosting and it’s also rich and delicious.
