All Cooking Light recipes have to meet our high standards, but a few each issue are so great they end up as staff favorites. Here are the best of 2008.
Many readers can't believe that the recipes in our Lighten Up column are as good as their heavier counterparts. When Imogene Reppe brought a batch of these lightened Chocolate-Mint Bars to her local beauty shop along with a batch of the old version, her tasters couldn't tell the difference, and many thought the light version offered more chocolate-mint flavor. These brownies are dense, fudgy, and seriously good.
