YIELD: 24 cupcakes

• 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 roll red-colored rolled fruit snack (from a 4.5-ounce box)


Directions
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large mixing bowl, beat cake mix with applesauce, egg whites and 1-1/4 cups water for 30 seconds on low speed, then 2 minutes on medium speed. Spoon batter into 24 (2½-inch) aluminum or paper lined muffin cups. Evenly divide 1 cup of blueberries onto tops of batter; do not stir.

Bake cupcakes following package directions; remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
