You can never have too many options when it comes to guilt-free chocolate treats. Because of this -- and because we just wanted some new desserts in our lives -- we whipped up a few fun new recipes. Enjoy!

Chocolate Sundae Supreme

Entire recipe: 209 calories, 5.5g fat, 130mg sodium, 35g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 22.5g sugars, 3.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

Layer upon layer of decadent deliciousness. Prepare to fall face over flip-flops for this one...

1/3 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed)
1/2 tsp. hot cocoa mix with 20 - 25 calories per packet (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
1/2 cup light chocolate ice cream
2 chocolate graham crackers (1/2 of a sheet), lightly crushed
1 tsp. chocolate sprinkles

In a small bowl, stir cocoa mix into Cool Whip until completely mixed.

In a parfait glass (or any mid-sized glass), evenly layer each ingredient: ice cream, crushed graham crackers, Cool Whip mixture, and sprinkles.

Now dig in!


Pretzel Chocolate Softies

1/6th of recipe (1 softie): 135 calories, 3.5g fat, 197mg sodium, 22.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 10.5g sugars, 3g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

The sweet & salty trend has hit our beloved softies! For those times when you can't decide which craving to satisfy, chomp on one of these...

1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated), or HG Alternative
2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown), room temperature
2 tbsp. no-sugar-added applesauce
2 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
2 packets hot cocoa mix with 20 - 25 calories each (like Swiss Miss Diet or Nestlé Fat Free)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 oz. (about 24) thin salted pretzel sticks, broken into very small pieces
2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly whisk brown sugar, Splenda, butter, applesauce, egg substitute, and vanilla extract.

Add flour, cocoa mix, baking powder, and salt, and stir until smooth. Fold in oats.

Spoon batter onto the sheet in 6 evenly spaced mounds. Use the back of a spoon to spread and flatten into 3-inch circles. Sprinkle pretzel pieces over batter and gently pat to adhere.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a softie comes out clean, about 10 minutes.

In a very small microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips at 50 percent power for 1 minute. Stir and microwave at 50 percent power for 30 seconds; repeat, as needed, until melted.

Stir melted chocolate and drizzle over softies. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate until chocolate drizzle is firm!


HG Alternative: If made with an equal amount of granulated white sugar in place of Splenda, each softie will have 148 calories, 26g carbs, and 14.5g sugars (PointsPlus® value 4*). 

Triple-Chocolate Freezy Crunchcake

Entire recipe: 199 calories, 5g fat, 97mg sodium, 35.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 18g sugars, 3.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

A ginormous ice cream sandwich can easily make one's day 17 percent better. Try this and see...

1/4 cup light chocolate ice cream, slightly softened
1 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 full-sized chocolate-flavored rice cakes (like Quaker Chocolate Crunch)

In a small bowl, stir chocolate chips into slightly softened ice cream. Spoon and spread mixture onto 1 rice cake.

Gently top with the other rice cake to form a sandwich. Freeze for 15 minutes, or until ice cream is firm... or just bite right in!
