Have Your Margarita…and Eat it Too!

While this recipe may scream “summer” as opposed to the middle of March, I couldn’t resist making these cupcakes for a little wishful thinking.

Strawberry Margarita Cupcakes!  They were a huge hit when I brought them into work and everyone kept commenting on how ‘light’ they were.  Exactly what you want from a dessert… Sweet, delicious and (seemingly) guilt-less.  It’s a light cupcake with a hint of strawberry and lime.

This recipe was modified from this one by Betty Crocker.

Ingredients

3/4 Cup of bottled Strawberry-flavored Margarita Drink Mix

1 box of White Cake Mix

Vegetable Oil and Egg Whites called for on the cake mix box

1 Container of Cool Whip

Berries for Garnish (optional)


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Add enough water to drink mix to measure 1 1/4 cups.

3. Mix together cake mix, drink mix, oil and egg whites in a bowl.

4. Evenly distribute cake mix into cupcake tins.

5. Bake for time directed on box.

6. Cool. Frost with Cool Whip.

7. (Optional) Garnish with berries.

Now that you’ve baked (and most likely eaten) your entire day’s worth of calories with this recipe–you can go check out Erika’s salad recommendation… Or better yet, TwentyTweets’ gym playlist!
