Cappuccino Cake Brownies

Rev BJ Friley


This is an example of a "better" dessert. With about half the butter of our normal brownie recipe, this recipe offers as healthier alternative to traditional high calorie brownies. If you want to decrease the sugar more, substitute Splenda. You could also use sugar-free or low-fat chocolate chips as a substitute for the regular chocolate chips.
