penny's StoryI got this recipe off the dLife website sounds great to me so thought I'd share it. I have subsituted the SUGAR FREE cake mix instead of a regular cake mix which they used in their recipe. I saved about 40 calories/serving, and saved about 14g of carbs per serving, using the SUGAR FREE cake mix ...that's quite a difference!
(Also, those watching their cholesterol intake might use this recipe...there's no oil or eggs!)
***You can always use the yellow SUGAR-FREE cake mix instead of chocolate and subsitute diet sprite or diet 7-up or diet orange crush. Top with a fruit or berry combo ***
