Better for You Chocolate Cupcakes

 


You are going to be so happy I have a Pinterest obsession and found this recipe. Not sure why I picked this one out of the hundreds thousands I have pinned but I'm really glad I did.  This recipe replaces the oil and eggs with pumpkin puree.  Better for you! I know it sounds gross but it doesn't change the flavor.  You have got to try these!

 You just need these 3 ingredients:

1 Boxed Chocolate Cake Mix

1 Small Can Pumpkin Puree (15 oz.)

6 oz. of Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together cake mix and canned pumpkin with a mixer for about 2 minutes.  Stir in almost all of the 6 oz. of chocolate chips.  Spoon into muffin tin with liners.  Batter is thick and will not rise as much as a normal cupcake so fill almost to the top.  Add remaining chocolate chips on top.  Bake for 22-25 min. until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
 
Teri's Tips:
  • DO NOT taste the batter!  It tastes nasty unbaked.
  • To prevent yourself from eating all of them in one day you can freeze them.
  • They taste extra yummy heated in the microwave and served with a big 'ole glass of milk.
