We had so much fun making homemade Girl Scout Cookies, we just had to try and recreate another childhood classic.
Why Make your own?
Using real ingredients like butter, sugar and chocolate in this recipe means our version won’t be low in calories. BUT, what you will be getting is a super fun and delicious cupcake made without preservatives, fillers, thickeners and hydrogenated oils found in the store-bought version.
This tricky treat is perfect for any Halloween parties on your schedule this week. A healthier take on classic carrot cake, the recipe may call for some lighter ingredients — apple sauce and low-fat cream cheese — but the flavor is rich and delicious. Add on a piece of candy corn or some orange sprinkles for festive flare.
Kids are heading back to school and that means class parties will be starting up again soon. Instead of bringing in 500-calorie cupcakes or donuts in for your kindergartener’s birthday bash, bake up a batch of these 100-calorie cupcakes. Serve them up with a side of fruit and you’ve got a perfect treat for the entire class. To mix up the color and flavor, use different fruits like blueberries or mango for the glaze.
They may come in pretty little packages, but cupcake calories can sure get ugly. Here are some lighter ways to enjoy these tasty pastries.
