So tonight, I am going over to a friend’s house, and I thought, what better way to show my love and appreciation than to bake? I mean anyone can purchase cake, right? Chocoholic that I am, I found Death by Chocolate and I’m like, this looks AWESOME. But then, after reading about all the beating, and whisking, mixing and melting, I’m like who the F&ck wants to DIE anyway?? Nothing like a good ‘ol Duncan Hines Brownie Mix. So I go to the store and after reading the box, find there are way too many ingredients I can’t pronounce . And me being all natural and everything (except when it comes to wine), I find these:
And, an added benefit? When made by the box directions, only 120 calories, 0 fat, and 1 gram fiber. If my memory serves me correctly, only 2 points. (Except, I didn’t follow directions and I added Ghiradelli semi-sweet chips– so I think they might be a tad more). But at least, I can pronounce all the ingredients like sugar, flour and cocoa.
So I bake and I bake (for at least 1 hour–even though the box says 45 minutes) because the insides are still gooey. But then, low and behold…the verdict is? Delicious (according to me and Bella ) If you’re trying to watch your weight, you might want to try them without the chips. But then again…maybe not.
Happy New Year everyone. And tomorrow? Tomorrow will be another diet day.
