Now that pumpkin season is over, I’m ALL about the chocolate-peppermint combo. So tasty and so Christmas-y. The greek yogurt/cake mix treats are pretty common on Pinterest, but I wanted to create a lower cal cream cheese frosting too. With a hint of peppermint, these were to die for. [and super easy. win-win] Be sure to check out Chobani’s website here for even more tasty treats!
For the Frosting:
8 oz (1 block) of Neufchatel Cream Cheese
1 container of vanilla Chobani Greek Yogurt
1/2 t peppermint extract (add more to-taste)
3 packets of stevia
crushed peppermint sticks for topping
Beat all ingredients and refrigerate. Top with crushed peppermint sticks just before serving.
This was such a tasty and guilt-free topping that would be amazing on any christmas treat! [sugar cookies, muffins, brownies, cupcakes, cookie bars, french toast….a spoon??]
For the cupcakes I used a Pinterest fav- cake mix + 1 cup of Chobani + 1/2 c water + 1 egg. Just mix it all in a bowl, grease your pan, and bake at 350*. Simple as that! **note, remove from oven when they look a little under-done.
