We wanted to preserve the rich chocolate flavor and keep the irresistible silky, fluffy texture of traditional chocolate mousse.
Most low-fat marble cheesecakes don't have much chocolate flavor and, frankly, aren't worth eating. A potent paste made from cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla gives the chocolate swirls in this light cheesecake plenty of flavor.
Big and chewy bakery chocolate chip cookies taste so good-but they also pack more than 200 calories and 8 grams of fat per cookie. A "mystery ingredient" in our recipe makes these cookies just as good, and no one will guess they're low fat.
We wanted an angel food cake that would appeal to the masses, not just to those counting calories.
Recipes for low-fat brownies are not unknown, but so often they're dry, gummy, or short on chocolate flavor-prune-flavored brownies, anyone? We injected our low-fat brownies with rich chocolate flavor and developed an irresistible, fudgy texture similar to traditional versions.
We wanted a sheet cake with great taste and texture but not much fat. Unfortunately, every low-fat recipe we tried was bland, spongy, or dry.
