Something Swanky

{Skinny} Frozen Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

Yes, it’s true.
This is a skinny dessert recipe.
As in: eating the whole batch won’t make you fat.
And it’s here. On Something Swanky. Where weight gain is a happy thought.
I’ve been exploring the world of lightened up desserts in HG’s 200 Under 200 cookbook–
which is awesome, by the way.
You don’t have to eat these frozen– they’re great fresh.
But I thought the marshmallow and cool whip topping was even better and creamier frozen!
But hey– that’s just me! It’s up to you how you want to eat these guys :)

      All you had to say was Skinny and I am all over it. In the process of trying to loose weight and train for a 5k, but I love deserts and even though you post some delicious desert recipes I have been trying to stay away from them (for now) but this one, oh no!! I am making this for sure. :)
      Thank you

      I am going to have to try these. If I can satisfy my sweet tooth without gaining weight, I will be a happy camper.

      The frozen cupcake idea is really creative and I bet it makes them last a little longer because you can’t just throw the whole thing in your mouth at once. Or at least I can’t…cold headache! YUM!
