When fourth quarter rolls around, pull out a plate of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate brownies and watch them disappear. Traditional brownies have around 250 calories and 10 grams of fat. Shave off 95 calories and 4.5g fat by making this simple substitution.
Makeover Tip: This rich dessert uses less fat than traditional brownies by substituting water and cherry preserves in place of some of the oil. The combination of unsweetened cocoa and semisweet chips makes for a rich, dark flavor.
