Thinking Pink for Valentine's Day

After eating all of the Christmas treats, we have been trying to be better at staying away from so many sweets. Now all of you our there know how hard that is when you drool over blog after blog of luscious looking desserts and run out to buy ingredients to whip up a batch of those cookies or brownies. C'mon you know you do it! I've been guilty of that myself!

But here is a nice little treat that won't cost many calories and look cute for your Valentine sweetie. I plan to make these for my office on Friday to give them a healthier treat. I may even keep a few at home for my sweet husband! Happy Baking!

1 box Betty Crocker white cake mix
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup water
3 egg whites
1-1/2 cups fat free strawberry yogurt
3/4 cup Lite Cool Whip

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 24 cupcake tins with paper wrappers. Remove Cool Whip from freezer to let it thaw.

Mix together the cake mix, 3/4 cup of the yogurt, the applesauce, the water and the egg whites. Beat on medium speed until smooth.

Pour into 24 prepared cupcake tins lined with papper wrappers. Each tin should be about 3/4 full.

Bake for 20-26 minutes ir until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove and let cool.

Mix together the Cool Whip and the remaining 3/4 cup of strawberry yogurt. Spread on the cooled cupcakes.

Serve with sliced strawberries on top if desired.
