These are outstanding, better than a regular brownie. Non-fat fudge sauce is available in specialty stores in a jar. Omit if not available.

Thank you so much - you made me look so good. I made these for my BF and his daughters - they all loved them and never knew that they were reduced fat. Thanks for a hit of a recipe....I knew that I could count on you for a great one! ;)
