Instead of using a chocolate cake mix I made a homemade chocolate zucchini cake with whole wheat flour. Just search allrecipes.com for chocolate zucchini cake and a few good recipes will come up. Instead of using apricot preserves for a glaze I used this recipe: Clear Fruit Glaze (half the recipe).
I also made my own chocolate frosting.
Thankfully Kit Kats were on sale as this cake takes a lot. They are the only really unhealthy part of this cake other than the frosting. If you don't want to eat them there are usually many takers who are happy to help you out.
Here is how my cake turned out! I decided it needed a ribbon to dress it up a bit.
The great thing about this cake is that it is super easy and impossible to fail. If the cake bakes crooked or you do a bad frosting job, it gets hidden by kit kats and berries.
