Just got an open-ended order from one of the teachers at the school. She's an older lady, and wants something for her lady friends who are very particular about their what they eat. (I sort of got the impression that they are trying to watch their weight.) She definitely wants chocolate covered strawberries icon_confused.gif and possibly some cake truffles icon_confused.gificon_confused.gificon_confused.gif

Anyway, I thought I'd make cake truffles with applesauce to cut down on the fat. Can anyone tell me how much to add? Do you simply replace the oil with applesauce? Drain it or not? Any help (or suggestions) would be greatly appreciated!!! Oh, and diet-wise, what's better for you ~ chocolate or vanilla cake?

I have always used the same amount of applesauce as oil. And as far as vanilla versus chocolate, I just looked at a vanilla cake mix versus and chocolate and the chocolate has more fat but less calories! The vanilla has 180 calories and 30 calories from fat while the chocolate has 170 calories and 40 from fat. So really it is about the same.
