I altered this recipe by substituting 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce and 1/4 cup of yogurt in place of the butter and I left out the brown sugar since the cake mix is already sweetened. I only used one cup of chocolate chips and found that it was plenty.I added in 1/2 cup of pecans to the mixture as well. Yummy and I'm certain it reduces the points by at least one if not two. It's healthier for sure.
