The low cal effect is descent enough but I do agree with the other reviewer if more for your calorie buck... lol with that said I doubled each serving and added caramels and left over cream cheese frosting. It is a very good desert and takes no time to bake, first time I have ever baked in my mircowave lol A fast crowd pleaser when you don't want to wait or do a whole lot of work... Thanks for posting SoulCandy.. am going to keep this in my to go to recipes for when my teenager is craving chocolate and grazing lol
Definitely tastes good. Only negative point: the serving is way too little. 3tbs does nothing to curb my craving. After having consumed the measly portion of it, worth 150 cals, I couldn't help but wish I had eaten something else in those 150 calories which would have been more filling than this. All this did was increase my craving.
I had a terrible chocolate craving today and then remembered that I tagged this recipe in I Recommend Tag Game. Boy am I glad I made that tag because this dish totally fixed my craving. It is wonderful and I'm really quite surprised it turned out so well in a microwave. I did skip on the frosting and just dusted with confectioner's sugar instead. Delicious and something I'll be using often to fix that chocolate craving! :)
10 stars!! Absolutely amazing and I love how you can't over indulge on it! Super easy too! Thanks so much for posting! Made for the I Recommend Tag Game.
Oh boy! I am in chocolate heaven! I couldn't find "reduced sugar" cake mix here, so I went for the real thing. This is so chocolatey good and the perfect size for a treat. It will definitely become a "regular" causing me to feed my chocolate addiction! :) Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbooks Tag-Feb'10.
This is fabulous!!! I got the normal cake mix (accidentally) and used light cool whip instead of frosting, this version 182 calories. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
What a find. thank you
Oh, YEAH! So fast, so good, so perfect! Thanx! ETA: I just have to mention that "decedant" should probably be "decadent." It's not at all dead.
This recipe made it into our Book #242923! 08/30/09 - This really works! We love Warm Delights, but feel that they are *way* overpriced. So I was glad to have stumbled onto this recipe. You did a great job duplicating the original. :) I used 1/2 cup each of cake mix and water and nuked it for 1 minute. Made it right in the bowl! Next time I'll add some chopped pecans. Toppings could be whatever you want, chocolate syrup and fresh strawberries sounds good too. What a great instant snack cake, warm and yummy! mmmmmm........
Out of this world!! Try different flavored cake mixes - I love the strawberry!
