What is Rocky Road Cupcakes?
I used to love Rocky Road ice cream when I was little. Rich chocolate, peanuts, and marshmallow, what is there not to love? When it comes to Rocky Road, that is the classic flavors together. Chocolate, nuts, and marshmallow. You might be thinking how can I have all that on a diet? With some little tricks, you can have a full-size cupcake, with icing, and not go off track.
Sugar Free Cupcakes
It doesn’t even sound like it could be possible. How can you have a sugar free cupcake, with marshmallow, with chocolate, and with icing? With these small tricks, you can have all that. This recipe is mostly sugar-free already. The cake mix which is the base of the cupcake is a sugar-free mix. The base of the icing is Sugar-Free Cool Whip and sugar-free pudding and that only leaves the marshmallow and the powdered sugar. There are actually sugar free marshmallows too. and you can use these Sugar-Free Powdered Sugar.
How to Store Cupcakes
Whenever possible you want to store cupcakes at room temperature in an airtight container. I personally do not mind if the cool whip icing is left out because, well, honestly, out cupcakes do not last more than a day or two. If you are uncomfortable with your icing being left out at room temperature, you can store the cupcakes in the refrigerator. However, this does dry out the cupcakes faster.
How Many Weight Watchers Points in these Cupcakes
When you make these Weight Watchers cupcakes as it is originally written, the cupcakes come out to 7 points, which isn’t bad for a cupcake like this. When you make the Weight Watchers Changes listed, these cupcakes are 4 Weight Watchers SmartPoints. That means I can 2 cupcakes for about the same points!
