Ooey-Gooey Chocolate Caramel Muffins

These three-ingredient treats will wow any and every chocolate lover.

Mix a box of moist-style devil’s food cake mix (15.25 - 18.25 oz.) with a 15-oz. can of pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!) until completely smooth and uniform. The batter will be thick. Distribute it into a 12-cup muffin pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Press one cube of chewy caramel (like Kraft Traditional) into the center of each, and smooth batter over the top. Bake at 400 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean (avoiding the caramel), about 20 minutes. Once cool, sprinkle 1 tsp. powdered sugar over the muffins. If not eating immediately, reheat muffins for 15 seconds in the microwave before you bite.

Combine 2 tbsp. light/low-fat ricotta cheese, 1 no-calorie sweetener packet, and 1 drop vanilla extract; mix well. Spoon mixture into the bottom corner of a plastic bag; snip off the tip to create a small hole, and squeeze the mixture into the strawberries. Top with 1 1/2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.
