- 1 batch fat-free brownies
- 1/4 cup no-sugar-added raspberry spread
- 3 cups slow-churned chocolate ice cream, softened
- 1/3 cup low-fat chocolate frosting
Line a freezer-safe 1.5-quart bowl with plastic wrap. Chill baked, cooled brownies for 30 minutes. Cut brownies into small pieces, pat into bowl to form crust. Stir 2 tablespoons raspberry spread into ice cream, and spoon into crust. Cover, freeze 8 hours or until firm. Melt frosting in microwave on high 45 seconds or until thin. Turn ice cream bombe out onto serving platter, coat with melted frosting. Melt remaining fruit spread and drizzle over finished bombe.
- For a completely fat-free dessert, use frozen yogurt in place of ice cream, and sprinkle with powdered sugar in place of frosting.
- For a sugar-free dessert, bake brownies with splenda, and use sugar-free jam, ice cream, and frosting.
- Vary ice cream, frosting, and fruit spread flavors. Suggestions: vanilla ice cream with marmalade, chocolate ice cream with strawberry spread, mint chocolate chip ice cream with no spread and vanilla frosting, etc.
Rich Chocolate Torte
- 1 batch fat-free brownies, baked in 8-inch round pan
- 6 Tbsp no-sugar-added strawberry fruit spread
- 1/2 cup low-fat chocolate frosting
- fresh strawberries for garnish
Cut brownie in half crosswise to produce two layers. Spread 1/4 cup strawberry spread evenly over bottom layer, place other half on top. Melt frosting in microwave on high 45 seconds until thin. Pour over top of torte and spread over top and sides. Melt remaining fruit spread and pour onto serving plates before placing slices on them. Garnish with slices of fresh strawberry.
- For completely fat-free dessert, pour melted fruit spread over torte in place of frosting.
- For sugar-free dessert, bake brownies with splenda and use sugar-free jam and frosting.
- Vary fruit spread and frosting flavors.
