Weekend quickies!!! It doesn’t get easier than this! Three ingredients (4 if you count water), cute, quick, and only 4ish Weight Watcher PointsPlus!
Easy Diet Friendly Black Forest Brownies
-1 Box Sugar-Free Chocolate Cake Mix (Pillsbury makes one, but a regular mix only changes the point value by 1)
-1 Can No-Sugar Added Cherry Pie Filling (Comstock makes one)
-3/4 Cup water
-Large Marshmallows for topping (optional)
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Mix everything together well (except the marshmallows). Pour in a greased 9×13 pan. Bake for 45-50 min. I took mine out at 45 min. I cut (tore) each marshmallow in half and placed them in rows of 4 down and 4 across ( I think. I squeezed as many in there as I could in a neat row). The marshmallow got a little melty on the bottom and stuck nicely to the cake. I cut it into 16 pieces. The cake is not a high-rising cake, so it is really more of a brownie. The marshmallow gives it a little sweetness, the cake is moist and chocolatey-cherrie-y! It’s a snap and not filled with guilt.
I forgot to take a picture and they were almost gone, so here’s what I was able to snap:
Figuring out the points was hard because the cake serving size is 1/12 (I made at least 16 squares). The pie-filling point is 85g serving with total contents per can being 7 servings, and the 1/2 marshmallow is less than 1 point. I figured 4 points-ish. It’s actually a nice little treat. I’m going to try different combinations next, like No-Sugar apple or peach filling with Yellow mix. Maybe a fruit piece for garnish or sprinkle of powdered sugar and cinnamon? Skies the limit!
Make some this weekend and share them with people you love!
