Chocolate Chip Cracker Kisses - 1 Point

Recipe By : Jane Paquet (handed down & modified)
Serving Size : 60 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Desserts

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 egg whites -- * see note
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup sugar -- extra-fine
-- preferred

6 fat-free saltine crackers -- **crushed,3T

2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips -- mini chips

Pre-heat oven to 300* F. Prepare a cookie sheet by covering it with
baker's parchment. In a totally grease-free mixing bowl, beat egg whites
on high until frothy. Add vanilla and cream of tartar. Continue beating
while gradually adding sugar. Make sure that sugar dissolves completely
and that mixture is not grainy. (I find that Bartender's sugar dissolves
most easily.) When mixture is quite stiff (consistency of marshmallow
fluff-- after about 5-10 mins. of beating), gently fold in saltine crumbs
and chocolate chips. Drop the meringue-like dough, 1 teaspoon at a time,
onto prepared cookie sheet. I use a very small ice cream scoop for this
purpose. They can be put right next to each other, they rise very little.
Entire recipe fits on one cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. On a humid
day, I usually turn the oven off 5 minutes early and leave the cookies in
the oven with the door closed until I'm ready to serve them. Yields about
60 1inch kisses.

NOTES :

Meringues can easy, if you know a few simple rules: 1) Everything that
touches the egg whites must be absolutely grease-free. Fat breaks down
the structure of beaten egg whites. Yolks contain fat, so it is important
not to get any yolk into the whites. I run everything through the
dishwasher before preparing meringues (mixing bowl, beaters, rubber
spatula, and teaspoon or ice-cream scoop)

2)* Eggs separate best when cold,but they beat up best at room
temperature. *An alternative to separating eggs is to use powdered egg
whites. They are available in the supermarket as "Just Whites". I really
like the fact that they are pasteurized (safe for taste-testing the
batter)

I don't recommend making this recipe on a very humid day unless you have
reliable air-conditioning; it can really flop!

**I use fat-free salted top saltines. Nutr. Assoc. : 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 4886

Per MasterCook analysis: Each kiss contains: 22 cals(28% CFF), 0.7g fat,
0.2g fiber 2 kisses= 1 point

Chocolate-Peppermint Angel Pie - 5 points

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Pie

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
--Meringue Crust
3 large egg whites -- at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar -- preferably superfine
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
--Chocolate Mousse Filling
1 cup skim milk
1 large egg
1/3 cup light corn syrup
2 teaspoons light corn syrup -- combine two corn syrup amounts
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ounces semisweet chocolate -- finely chopped
2 ounces Neufchatel cheese -- softened
2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 cup sugar
2 large egg whites -- room temperature
--Garnish
1 ounce semisweet chocolate

TO MAKE CRUST: Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9-inch pie plate and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, cream of tartar and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add 1/4 cup sugar and beat for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Add vanilla and beat for 7 to 10 minutes longer, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl, until all the sugar is dissolved and the meringue is stiff and shiny.
Spread the meringue over the bottom and sides of the prepared pie plate. using the back of a spoon, spread some meringue up to the rim, forming a decorative edge. Alternatively, using a piping bag fitted with a start tip, pipe the meringue into the pie plate. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until firm and crisp. Cool on a wire rack. (The meringue crust can be prepared ahead and stored, covered, in an airtight container for up to 1 week.)
TO MAKE FILLING: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup milk, 1 whole egg, 1/3 cup corn syrup and cocoa until smooth. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, heat the remaining 3/4 cup milk until bubbles appear at the edge; remove from heat. Whisk a little hot milk into the cocoa mixture. Then whisk the cocoa mixture into the remaining milk in the saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate and cream cheese until smooth. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup water. let soften for about 3 minutes. heat over low heat for 1 to 3 minutes, or until the gelatin is dissolved. whisk into the chocolate mixture along with vanilla and peppermint. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tsp. corn syrup. Bring to a boil and cook, without stirring, over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until the syrup registers 230 degrees F on a candy thermometer and is at thread stage (when a bit of syrup dipped in cold water forms a fine thread). At this point, in a medium-sized mixing bowl, begin beating egg whites with an electric mixer at medium low speed. Beat until soft peaks form. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and beat at medium high speed until egg whites are stiff but not dry.
When the sugar syrup registers 239 degrees F and is at soft-ball stage (when a bit of syrup dipped in cold water forms a soft, pliable ball), gradually pour it over the beaten egg whites, beating constantly at medium-high speed. Beat at medium speed for about 5 minutes longer, or until the egg whites are stiff, satiny and cool.
Whisk about 1 cup of this meringue into the chocolate mixture. fold in the remaining meringue. turn into the prepared meringue crust, spreading to the edges. Smooth top. Cover loosely with plastic and refrigerate until the filling is set, for at least 3 hours or for up to 8 hours.
TO GARNISH PIE: If desired, warm chocolate in a microwave oven at medium low (30 percent) power for 1 to 2 minutes, or just until slightly softened but not melted. Alternatively, warm it in a 250 degree F oven for 3 to 5 minutes using a vegetable peeler, shave off curls onto a sheet of wax paper. Arrange the curls decoratively over the top of the pie.

NOTES : Here is a wonderful pie - one of my all-time favorite recipes!! If its hot where you are - try it!! *Hint: I have trouble with clumping in my pies. I have solved that problem by using lukewarm water and dissolving the dry milk powder in the water. Then I let it sit a few minutes while I measure out other ingredients to get them ready to put in the recipe. Then I mix the wet mixture in with the pudding. A story (sorry this is such a long post): I saw JoAnna make this pie one Saturday on PBS. That night my husband and I were watching a movie on TV. During a commercial I surprised him with a piece of this pie. He tasted it and said, "Ummmm. This is good. Where did it come from?" I replied, "I made it during the last commercial!" I love JoAnna's philosophy - "If it takes longer to make it than to eat it, forget it!!" It is so cooling and refreshing and creamy and CHOCOLATEY..... mmmmmmmmmm
"I freeze this pie (individual slices). When I want it, I set it out about 15-30 minutes ahead of time. Let it thaw enough to eat it. WOWSERS!!! Is it good!!! I reminds me of mint chocolate-chip ice cream and York Peppermint Patties. (I didn't tell my daughter that this pie is "healthy" - I just told her that its a mint chocolate chip pie - she loves it). "
Maggie

From: MaryD
"I made this pie today minus the crust (no crust eliminates 110 calories and 5 grams of fat). I made it in the pie pan as it is so much easier to divide that way. Topped it with non-fat cool whip.

IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!! If you like the taste of Andre Mints, you will love this (even without a crust on it). Hal thought it was great too. Another keeper for my recipe file.

It looked so pretty with its light green color (used food coloring)and mini chocolate chips throughout. Isn't it amazing how far 2 tablespoon full of chips go.

Definitely would recommend this recipe. Be sure to try it."

I had trouble posting this earlier. I hope it works this time. This is another way of keeping those chocolate cravings in control. I usually make this recipe into 3 larger (2 point) servings plus 2 smaller servings of 1 point each. I usually eat a serving with up to 2 T of FF Cool Whip or Redi-whip for the same point count.

I found a great recipe for a low fat "muffin"- I think it could also pass for cupcakes-lol. I have switched to using powdered no-fat milk so I can have several "mixes" made ahead in the cupboard- all I have to add is the yougurt, vanilla, and water- much less mess then getting all the ingrediants out at once and much cheaper then the premade mixes and you you what all the ingrediants are. (HINT: I use 1/4 cup dry powder milk- to make it easier to disolve in the mix, I put it through the food processor to make it finer- I usually do several mixes up at a time, so I use my digital scale to measure to equal the 1/4 cup ( 1/2 oz))

Here is the recipe (I think it is origianly from Hersey's, but I have seen variations posted on a lot of sites)

Chocolate Muffins

1-1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup nonfat unsweetened yogurt
2/3 cup skim milk (or 1/4 cup fat free powder milk + 2/3 cup water)
1/2 tsp. vanilla


Mix dry ingredients. Stir in yogurt, milk and vanilla. Mix just until combined and moistened. Divide batter evenly in 12 lined muffin cups.

Bake at 400º for 15-20 min.

SERVINGS: 12
EACH MUFFIN: 110 calories
0 fat
less then 1 gram of fiber
2 pts each!

VARIATION: FAT FREE CHEWY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES: I took one of my dry mixes (all the dry ingrediants plus 1/4 cup fat free powdered milk) and added one cup of fat free plain yogurt and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Mix and spread into a 8"x8" pan that has been sprayed with Pam type spray. Bake at 350 for 16-22 minutes. Cut into 16 2"x2" squares- 0 fat, less then 1 gram fiber, 85 calories per brownie: 1.5 points a piece!

You could add a scoop of fat free/sugar free frozen yogurt for a great 3 point dessert!

I haven't tried the recipe with Splenda yet- it would make the Muffins 62 calories, and the Brownies 46 calories- if any one tries this subsitution, let me know how it works.

Thanks~

Don't remember what thread I was reading last week aboout mixing Swiss Miss into Cool Whip, but I did this over the weekend for my sister's birthday and it made great icing for am Angel Food Cake.

I mixed:
2 pkgs Diet Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate
1 tub FF Cool Whip, thawed

It made a very thick layer fluffy icing for a store bought Angel Food Cake and left-over cake kept in refrigerator overnight just fine.
Sorry I didn't keep the points info, but I'm sure someone will post.

One of the problems I've always found with calorie-reduced chocolate cake is that it, frankly, doesn't take like chocolate cake. You know, that intensely chocolate, gooey stuff you want to lick off your fingers because its yummy chocolate. This recipe does the trick. It doesn't give you a large portion but it's worth every point. I make it for crowds so leftovers won't tempt me.

1 Tsp. Cornstarch

1 1/4 C Splenda
3 Tbsp. Skim Milk
1/2 C Light Margarine -- Tub Style; Softened
1/4 C Vanilla
1 Tbsp. Cocoa -- Dutch Cocoa

1. In a medium saucepan, heat the light tub margarine and the skim milk
until the spread is just melted. Blend the non-fat dry milk, cornstarch,
and Splenda. Whisk the mixture into the liquid. Heat the blend, stirring
constantly, until it thickens (do not boil). Remove from heat and cool for
two minutes. Add the vanilla and then sprinkle the cocoa into the blend,
whisking vigorously. Spread over cooled cake.

NOTES : This makes scant icing. It's enough to ice (barely) one layer
cake.

Since there is so little, and the icing starts out a bit thin,
the best way to ice the cake is to put a tin layer everywhere and
then put it in the refrigerator until it thickens. Then fix the
icing. If you want fancy swirls, you will need to make two recipes
of this. As it is, it is fine for tasting gooey and very
chocolate.

For variety, substitute blackberry extract for the vanilla.

Chocolate Pumpkin Cake

1 devils food cake mix (be sure not to use pudding in the mix kind, these have extra calories!)
2 egg whites
1 can pumpkin
1 can water

Mix together and pour in bundt pan. Bake according to package directions for a bundt pan, you may need to add a few minutes. You want a toothpick to come out clean when you test it, or it will be too gooey. I top this with a little fat free cool whip when I serve it. Even my kids love it, and they don't notice the pumpkin!

1/12th of the cake is 3pts per serving

This is an easy, showy recipe that is low in fat and tastes great.

Prep Time: 10 minutes, Chill 1 hour

1 large pkg of FFSF Chocolate Pudding
1 large container of nonfat Cool Whip, well chilled
1 cup ice cold NF milk
1/4 c. crushed chocolate cookies (I have used crushed cocoa Krispies for this in a pinch)
4 Wine Goblets


Prepare the pudding with an electric mixer using the one cup of milk to mix it. Beat at highest speed until well blended and starting to set up. It will be thick, like browny mix. Add 1/2 of the Cool Whip and fold in slowly, then increase mixer speed to highest speed and whip for about 2 minutes. Using remaining Cool Whip, make alternating layers of chocolate mix and Cool Whip, making sure there is a small Cool Whip dollop on the top. Chill for at least one hour. Just before serving, sprinkle a bit of the crushed cookie crumbs on top.

According to my calculations, this is a 4 point dessert.

I just found a recipe for oreo dirt cake and I thought about redoing the recipe to make it lower in fat. Has anyone tried it before with this recipe and had it turn out good?

Here is the original recipe:
1 32 oz pckg Oreo cookies (maybe use the lite version)
1 8 oz pckg cream cheese (maybe use the lite version, not ff)
1 c powdered sugar
1 stick butter (maybe use the lite version or ff since its not being baked with)
2 sm pckg vanilla pudding (maybe use the sf/ff version)
3 1/2 cups milk
1 12 oz container cool whip (maybe use either the lite or ff)

In blender grind oreo cookies and set aside.

In a bowl, cream the cream cheese, powdered sugar and butter. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix vanilla pudding, milk, and fold in cool whip. Fold in the cream cheese mixture.

In a container, such as flower pot, place the cool whip mixture on the bottom, add the cookies, then cool whip mixture, then cookies, and keep alternating the layers. Refrigerate 24 hours before serving. Makes 8 servings. Garnish with gummy worms.

I don't know the points yet for this.

Thanks!;)

Chocolate-Cherry Cake

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Desserts

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can lite cherry pie filling
1/2 cup water.

Spray muffin liners with Pam or they'll stick. Fill liners with batter and bake according to box directions. Sometimes it takes a little longer to bake, just keep checking (I've burnt them before...yuck). The points depend on how many you make. Take the total calories, fat, fiber for the box of cake and the cherries and divide by how many muffins you made to get the points. They should be 2-3, depending on how big. You'll love them, they're yummy

Chocolate cupcakes:

1 - can pumpkin
1/2 - cup water
1 - box chocolate cake mix
Mix pumpkin & water in bowl, add cake mix and mix well.
Divide into 24 muffin cups. (I made 12 large ones instead)
Bake according to cake mix.

After these were baked & cooled, I wrapped them individually in saran wrap & they kept for a long time in fridge. Also they freeze well.

Nice chocolately treat. 2 points for the small ones.

1 Box of Low Fat Honey Maid Honey Graham Crackers
1 Tub of Fat Free Cool Whip

1 sheet of graham crackers, (4 squares), but only break in half.
Put a dab of the fat free cool whip on one side & put the other half on top to make a sandwich. Freeze & Serve.

1 Graham Cracker Treat is 1 point

I usually make 1 package of the graham crackers at a time & keep them in the freezer in a ziploc. Excellent 1 point snack!!

This is simple, sweet, fast, filling and low points...

1 low fat graham cracker .5pt
Fat-free cream cheese .5 pt
Lite Cherry Pie filling .5 pt

Spread the cream cheese on the cracker and top with the pie filing. I sometimes top it off with cool whip free. It's kinda like cheese cake for only 1.5 points!

Swiss Chocolate Roll (this shows how long I have dealt with weight issues!)

Cake:
1 pkt. Alba choc. milkshake mix
3 pkts. sweetner
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 banana, mashed
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg sub
1 tsp. vanilla
1 bread, crumbed or 3 Tbsp. flour

Blend dry ingredients; stir in banana, egg, vanilla. Spread on nonstick spray treated pan (square shape works best). Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. While hot turn onto foil or wax paper, spread with filling, roll into roll and cool.

Filling:
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
sweetner to taste (I would use nutrasweet or splenda)
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix and set aside.

If you use reduced calorie bread (2 slices crumbed)
and fat-free ricotta cheese count as follows:

1 serving (whole recipe) = 6 points
1/2 recipe = 3 points
1/3 recipe = 2 points

Or you can mix 2 Tbls of raspberry preserves, (I've also used blackberry) and 1 tsp of almond extract in 8 oz of cool whip. Using a package of chocolate grahams, frost between each one and then lay in a dish and frost like a cake (hope this makes sense)...refirgerate at least 24 hours...makes 12, 1-point servings...of course we cut into into 4, 3-point servings!
Enjoy!
