Instructions

Preheat oven to 375º F. Lightly coat a bundt cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a stand-up mixer (or large bowl with a hand mixer), blend the dry cake mix, egg whites, Greek yogurt, water, and vanilla.

Mix until smooth and fluffy, 3-4 minutes.

Next, fold in the mini chocolate chips and sprinkles, and transfer the cake batter to the bundt cake pan.

Bake until a fork inserted in the center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes.

!Frosting:

In a stand-up mixer (or bowl with a hand mixer), beat the thawed cream cheese for 1 minute.

Add the powdered sugar and sweetener to the cream cheese and blend until smooth, 2-4 minutes.

When the cake is cool, flip the bundt pan onto a plate or flat surface.

Place the cream cheese frosting in a medium-size resealable bag or pastry bag.

Cover the cake by zig-zagging back and forth with frosting.

Top with optional sprinkles.
