Chocolate Dream Cupcake Bites with Whipped Chocolate Frosting
Yields: 10
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Ovaltine Rich Chocolate powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ plus ⅛ tsp baking soda
  • 2-1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp skim milk
  • ⅓ cup whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp Ovaltine Rich Chocolate powder
  • Sliced strawberries (Optional - garnish)
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together all your cupcake ingredients (flour, various powders, salt, apple sauce, etc.)
  3. Spoon 1 tbsp of batter into each mini muffin tin cup.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of each cupcake comes out clean.
  5. While your cupcakes are baking, mix up your frosting. In a small bowl, beat whipping cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in powdered sugar and Ovaltine powder, until mixture is uniform in color and texture.
  6. Pull cupcakes out of the oven and allow them to cool completely.
  7. Pipe or spoon frosting on top of each cupcake. (I think I piped just under 1 tbsp frosting onto each of my cupcakes.)
  8. Garnish each cupcake with one slice of strawberry.
  9. Enjoy immediately, without guilt!
