Low-Fat Chocolate Mummy Cupcakes


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 *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. Directions: 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. Source: http://www.skinnytaste.com/
