Chocolate Candy Cookies
If you’re looking for a sweet, homemade treat, look no further than this recipe. The addition of peanut butter cups makes these goodies simply delightful!
Preparation time: 25 minutes.
Cooling time: 15 minutes.

Ingredients
Cooking spray
1 package (8 ounces) low-fat sugar-free chocolate snack cake mix (such as Sweet ‘n Low chocolate cake snack cake mix)
3 tablespoons skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (3 1/4-ounce) package fructose-sweetened peanut butter cup candy, coarsely chopped (such as Estee)
2 tablespoons peanut butter baking chips
1/2 teaspoon corn oil

Directions
Yield: 24 cookies.
Serving size: 1 cookie.

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside. Beat cake mix, milk, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed. When the mixture looks crumbly, increase speed to medium and beat 1-2 minutes or until a smooth dough forms (dough will be very sticky). Stir in chopped candy. Coat hands with cooking spray. Roll dough into 1-inch balls (recoat hands as needed). Place balls 2 1/2 inches apart on the greased baking sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with the bottom of a drinking glass coated with cooking spray. Bake 8-9 minutes, or until cookies lose their shininess and tops begin to crack. Do not over bake. Remove to wire rack to cool.

2 – Heat baking chips and oil in a small saucepan over low heat until baking chips melt. Drizzle cooled cookies with melted baking chips. Allow topping to harden before serving.

One-Bowl Chocolate Cake
This easy-to-make chocolate cake is dark, moist, rich–and only dirties one bowl! Not quite as easy as boxed cake mixes, but those often contain trans fats. Our simple “from scratch” recipe gives you a home-baked cake with healthful canola oil and whole-wheat flour……

Flourless Chocolate Cookies
These flourless cookies get their volume from whipped egg whites (like a meringue) instead of grains, making them gluten-free and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. A chocolate chip in each bite adds to the rich chocolate flavor……

Dark Chocolate Hummus
This dessert hummus is an unexpectedly delightful treat that still packs the protein and fiber punch of traditional hummus. Try dipping banana and apple slices, pretzels, strawberries or graham crackers in this sweet, chocolaty spread……
