I’ve been a Hungry Girl fan for a long time! If you aren’t familiar with Hungry Girl she is a life saver for “Hungry Chicks”, by taking the fattening food that we all love, indulge on and gain weight from, she creates recipes to allow you the same enjoyment… but in a less fattening way.
Here is a recipe from her latest newsletter that I’m aching to try! If you give it a try you will have to let me know how they turn out

1/4th of an 18.25-oz. box (about 1 cup) moist-style devil’s food cake mix
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups light chocolate chip ice cream (vanilla with chocolate chips, like the kind in the Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Light line)
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip Free, thawed
2 tbsp. sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with baking cups; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg substitute, and 1/2 cup water. Whisk until completely blended.
Add chocolate chips to the bowl and gently stir. Evenly distribute mixture among the cups of the muffin pan. (Cups will be about one-third full.)
Bake in the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out mostly clean, 20 – 22 minutes.
Let cupcakes cool completely, at least 30 minutes.
Remove cupcakes from the pan. Evenly top cupcakes with ice cream, 1/4 cup per cupcake. Evenly top each cupcake’s ice cream layer with 2 tbsp. Cool Whip and 1/2 tsp. sprinkles.
Transfer cupcakes to a large platter that will fit in your freezer, or place them back in the cooled muffin pan.
Freeze for at least 1 1/2 hours, until ice cream is firm and Cool Whip is frozen. Then eat!

HG Tip! If frozen for longer than 1 1/2 hours, allow cupcakes to slightly thaw before eating, about 5 minutes.
