I have to admit I am totally confused! The box says that it's like 150 calories per serving (pre-mix with other items) - so how does it become 1 point? Should I spread it out over more than 12 cupcake cups?

Crap I don't know how to multiple quote but Martha said the ones she made for only 12 cupcakes, she counted as 2 pts each. Maybe the 1 point recipe was for 24 cupcakes.

I only just figured out MQ-ing myself!

Maybe you guys are going to kill me for possibly ruining this recipe for you but I have to tell you I still don't see how it's only 1 point

...even if you make 24. According to the box the unprepared mix has 180 calories, 4 grams of fat and 1 gram of fiber. If you put that into the WW calculator that means that 1/12 of the box is 4 points. So if you make 24 cupcake then they would be 2 points (still pretty good though!). Sorry for being a foshizzle.bmpabout it! It's still great - cupcakes for only 2 points!

Could it be if the person calculated it, just calculating 1 serving and not that of the whole box?

 

I read on hungry girl that if you're making a recipe or using more than one serving of something, you're supposed to add up all of the calories, fat and fiber and then calculate the points, I think like the calculator on WW. Because the point value comes out different.

 

I haven't tried these yet.

That's possible but I didn't calculate the whole box - just the 1 serving size (which is according to the box 12th of the box). Maybe it just makes a lot of cupcakes! wink.gif

I think the food content on the side of the box might be if the cupcakes are prepared according to the instructions, ie with the eggs and the oil. The calculation of 1 point is not using any of those ingredients. I could be wrong.
