Sometimes you just need one warm, sweet, heavenly treat without the mess, time or calories involved in baking a whole batch of cookies or a pan of brownies. I stumbled across this recipe online at the News-Gazette.com on just such an occasion. Why not create a sweet Valentine's gift for someone special by packaging the dry ingredients in a cute mug, along with instructions for making it? (Or keep some mixes at the ready for when you've had one of those days that just needs a sweet ending.)
1 1/2 Tablespoons butter
5 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1-2 Tablespoons milk chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
12 oz. microwaveable mug
Place butter in mug and microwave until melted (5-10 seconds). Add remaining ingredients and stir until completely combined. Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds. Let cool and enjoy! (delicious with a dollop of vanilla ice cream added)
Wow your guests with this simply delicious and refreshing dessert that's as easy to make as it will be on your waistline. It can be made ahead of time and frozen. Allow time to thaw slightly before serving.
1 bag frozen pineapple (unsweetened)
2 6-oz containers fat free pina colada yogurt
Place the frozen pineapple in a food processor fitted with a chopping blade and process just until it begins to look grainy. Add both yogurts and continue to process until smooth, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides of the bowl.
Tip: Try substituting frozen mango and peach yogurt for another tasty alternative!
