Chocolate Dream Cupcake Bites with Whipped Chocolate Frosting

January 13, 2013

I woke up this morning with the most intense craving for chocolate. Visions of chocolate cupcakes with mile-high buttercream frosting, gooey chocolate chip cookies, chocolate-swirl ice cream, and moist, fudge-y brownies danced through my mind. But, since none of those things are allowed on my wedding diet, there was nothing immediately available in my pantry or fridge to satisfy those cravings. Probably for the best.

Still, a chocolate craving can never fully be denied, so I went on a hunt for a recipe that would give me a delicious and satisfying dose of chocolate without breaking my diet bank. These Chocolate Dream Cupcake Bites with Whipped Chocolate Frosting fit the bill perfectly, and were just what I needed to appease the choco-monster raging inside me.

As the name suggests, these cupcake bites are a dieter’s (and chocolate lover’s) dream. They aren’t your usual dense, sugary-sweet cupcakes with thick, heavy chocolate frosting. These are airy and light and full of rich but delicate chocolate flavor, and the whipped frosting just melts in your mouth. And, at only 70 calories a pop, these bite-sized treats satisfy without all the guilt usually associated with consuming chocolate treats. Oh, and did I mention that they’re really easy to make? Yeah. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
