Guiltless Gourmet Dessert Bowl, Hot Chocolate Brownie w/ Fudge Sauce
Guiltless Gourmet Dessert Bowl, Hot Chocolate Brownie w/ Fudge Sauce

Brownie-licious!

Ok, we have to come clean. We've secretly been eyeballing Betty Crocker's Warm Delights dessert bowls. No, we've never tried 'em (eeks! scary nutritionals alert!), but we definitely admired the concept. Individual servings of warm cake, with delicious goo you squeeze on top?! Who WOULDN'T want to jump all over that? But we waited and waited and our prayers were answered by our good pals over at Guiltless Gourmet (you know, the chip peeps!), when they came out with some INSANELY delicious swaps. And here they are!  In three flavors (Hot Chocolate Brownie, Black Velvet Cake and Bananas Foster Cake), these bowls are not only delicious and decadent -- they're FUN, too! Simply add a little water, stir, microwave for a minute or so (read the box for specific directions), squeeze the packet of gooey sauce over the top and voila -- your delicious masterpiece is ready for chewing. HG Tip! Instead of using two tablespoons of water, use three -- your dessert will be super-moist and a bit LARGER (yay!). These can be a bit hard to find. They're available online, but sell out quickly (boo!).

Ugly Betty!

Betty Crocker has a lot of nerve calling her instant nuke-em-yourself desserts "Warm Delights." There's little delight in swallowing a supermarket dessert bowl that has 370 calories and 12 grams of fat! Yeah, we admitted that we had secretly coveted these bowls (see the copy to the left for proof). But we're glad we held out and waited for the guilt-free versions to show up, because they ROCK. Honestly, we've never tried BC's bowls -- and truth be told -- they do look pretty tasty.  But with guilt-free swaps available, why be tempted by these at all? Sorry, Betty. Keep your silly bowls. We're not interested...
