As 2013 approaches, the “Diet Vultures” start circling. Weight Watcher’s, Jenny Craig, NutriSystem, Gold’s Gym, Your-Local-Gym, Miracle Weight loss pills and shakes, etc…, etc… They start to push the commercials on TV and the radio. You know you ate too much during the holidays and you feel a bit guilty for over indulging. Heck, my blog might be to blame… (I know Pinterest sure is!)
So, if you are one of the millions of people who are going to “go-on-a-diet-and-this-time-I-mean-it” don’t stress out if you miss the wonderful chocolate treats. Enjoy these yummy little truffles without ruining your diet.
I used the Weight Watcher’s Brownies and Carob Chips. I looked up WW points for Dark Chocolate Vs. Carob and found that the 1 teaspoon of Unsweetened Carob has 0 points! Score for you!
As I drizzled the melted carob over the brownie bites, I don’t even think I used a teaspoon…
To make these brownie Truffles, simply break a brownie in half.
Squish it up and roll into a ball.
Then drizzle with melted Carob.
Allow to harden and then eat ONE now and save the other one for later.
These are small truffles. You can see here, I have a regular sized truffles in a mini-cupcake liner and the WW truffles in an actual truffle liner.
Don’t let the size of it fool you into thinking that they are tasteless or won’t deliver enough of a chocolate fix.
I thought they were very rich and satisfying. I also shared them with a friend who was actively on a diet and she was thrilled to receive them. She thought they were very good and could not believe they were “diet” brownies.
Here’s to 2013! I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Celebration with the people who mean the most to you. Enjoy!
