Skinny Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Glaze {WW Points}


It's going to be a week of Chocolate-y, Sweet Treats at the Better Baker!! 

These tasty treats are super moist and chocolate-y!

Even Fudge-y!  

My sister-in-love, Vicki, shared these on her Facebook page and I made them the very next day.  

Using a cake mix, instant pudding, pumpkin and will enjoy these quick-to-make snack.  Weight Watchers Points included. 

They are sooo good after they're chilled too.  I shared some with a friend who is a calorie-counter also, and she LOVED them. 

A great treat without all the added fat to make for your family and those you love. 

After all, chocolate DOES say L-O-V-E, don't you agree? 

1 - 18 ozs. dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1.3 oz. sugar free/fat free instant chocolate pudding

1 c. canned pumpkin  (not the whole can)
1-1/3 c. water

Preheat oven to 350.  Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners - spray with nonstick spray for easy cleanup, but not necessary. 
Mix above ingredients together until smooth. (I mixed it by hand). Divide evenly between 24 muffin cups - bake 25 - 28 minutes. 

When cool, frost with glaze if desired.  Trust me, they are plenty good without the glaze. 

Chocolate Glaze: 

1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 Tb. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 - 1 Tb. 1% milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt 
Serving size: 1 cupcake
