Gin’s Brownies

By now you probably know that we love everything chocolate. Yep, chocolate pretzels, hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies… they’re all fair game for us. And we’re always whipping up new chocolate creations– typically ultra-chocolatey– but we even love them when they’ve just got a touch of chocolate– liker our Microwave Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or our Skinny Oreo Balls! But slash calories to make chocolate waistline-friendly, and it’s that much better! So when we found this recipe from the Midwest Dairy site for 159 calorie brownies, we had to give it a whirl! And let us tell you, these are delish!
