These are healthy Chocolate Mummy cupcakes with vanilla frosting, wouldn't these be so cute to bring to a Halloween party!

Ingredients

For the Vanilla Frosting:

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup light butter (Land O Lakes*)
  • 1 tsp white vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp boiling water

For the eyes:

  • 36 m&m's

Instructions

  • Start with my basic Super Moist Low Fat Chocolate Cupcakes recipe, without the chocolate frosting.
  • When cooked and cooled you can decorate with the frosting.
  • For the frosting: combine confectioners' sugar, melted light butter, vanilla and enough water to achieve frosting consistency, starting with 1 tbsp and adding more if needed.
  • Place frosting into a piping bag, cut the tip off and pipe onto cupcakes. (no need for a fancy tip unless of course you want to use one!)
  • While frosting is still wet, press 2 m&m's (letter side down) of the same color on each cupcake to create the eyes.

Notes

*Note: Some "light" butters have yellow coloring added which will effect the color of the icing, Land O Lakes Light is a good option. Also, dark vanilla will effect the color, use clear to keep it white.
