Nearly Fat-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Submitted by: LOSERSHAVEN

Introduction

Now of course these are not as good as "real" cupcakes, but if you are trying to watch what you eat but need that chocolate cake fix, these will do the trick! I like to whip up fat free topping or low fat chocolate mousse to use as icing! Give them a try! Variations would be to add cinnamon for a mexican flavour or shredded carrots for some extra fibre!
