Favorite Chocolate Dessert

I love reading everybody's favorite recipes and sometimes trying them out.  Tonight I thought I'd share one of my favorite recipes.  You just add water and stir.  How much simpler can it be.  I know this isn't a "real recipe" like the "real cooks" post but it'll do in a pinch.

Today's post was going to be about sweeteners:  the pros and cons of the various ones available.  However, my sweet tooth got overly involved and demanding so I said, "Okay, Okay!", and whipped up a batch of brownies.  Delicious!  Warm from the oven.  Just too good.

So how do you turn this into something healthy?  I didn't even have any blueberries to spoon on top.  We could go with the chocolate being good for you, which is true.  This chocolate?  I think that's stretching it a bit.

The healthiest part of this cooking and snacking session was giving most of it away.  I ate 3 good sized brownies.  After that I didn't even want to see brownies again.  I was overly satiated.  By tomorrow?  Oh I'd be ready for brownies again.  That's when it gets to be unhealthy for me.  So  into the foil wrap they went and over to the neighbors.  A teenage boy lives next door  and he loves it when this happens.  There is a surprise for him in his mailbox.

So next time you make something decadent, eat a little and share the rest...quickly!


  1. Looks terribly terribly sinful!.. taste-wise I bet too......

    ... probably something I could use now...

  2. Yeah, it was terribly sinful, but could have been so much worse.....:)

  3. I do that all the time. Sometimes (not always), I get the most enjoyment out of the act of baking or cooking something & then getting to share it!

  4. I'm not much of a baker...just every now and then. Thx for the visit.


Love to hear your thoughts! What do you think?
