Low-Cal Easter Cupcakes
Use our just-add-water Brownie Mix and some mini chocolate eggs, you can make these amazing treats
Easter comes but once a year and if you are looking for reduced sugar treats that won't pile on the calories or massively ramp up the carbs, then these cupcakes are the ones for you.
Baking our cupcakes in paper/silicone cake moulds gives a different slant to the usual square brownies and these can then be decorated with seasonally appropriate treats.
This is a great recipe for kids and big kids alike!
Notes on the recipe:
Be aware, most additions will be adding sugar and/or calories to the basic cupcake. We have topped ours with a sweetened cream cheese frosting, flavoured with cocoa. We have added 2 leading brand mini eggs to each one.
If trying to make them even lower in sugars, a simple, whipped cream topping would be even better in terms of sugar and you would be best off sourcing sweetened, dark chocolate eggs - available online.
