1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup Splenda for Baking
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream

1Tbsp.light corn syrup
1Tbsp.light buttery spread (such as Promise Activ)
2 1/4cupspowdered sugar
4 1/2tsp.semisweet mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners, using more than one pan if necessary to make 18 cupcakes. Prepare the chocolate mixture: In a double boiler over simmering water, melt the semisweet chocolate. Remove the chocolate from the double boiler and add to a bowl. Add the cocoa and boiling water to the bowl and mix until smooth. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, beat together the Splenda, canola oil, and vanilla on medium speed for 1 minute. Add in the eggs and sour cream and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Reduce the mixer speed to low. Add half the flour mixture and beat for 1 minute. Increase the speed to medium and, alternately, add the remaining flour mixture and chocolate mixture, a little at a time, ending with the chocolate mixture. Do not overbeat.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared cups. Bake for 18 to 19 minutes until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool 5 minutes in the pan. Turn out the cupcakes onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. Frost with 2 tsp. of Creamy White Frosting (recipe below) and sprinkle with d tsp. semisweet mini chocolate chips.
