WW Recipe of The Day: Slow Cooker Raspberry Chocolate Sauce
Valentine's Day is coming soon. Have you decided how you're going to indulge yourself yet?
I'm still contemplating my options, which is part of the fun!
If we constantly deprive our brain of the food we most desire, we crave it more. A losing proposition if there ever was one.
So, I'm all about allowing myself a little of what I want. And what I want on Valentine's Day is chocolate, the richer the better.
To celebrate The Day Culver's is having a special buy-one-get-one-free special on turtle sundaes. A sweet, rich, delectable option that will cost me a mere 608 calories and *17 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *28 WW Freestyle SmartPoints (for the 1 scoop sundae)!
I think I'd rather make my own little brownie sundae using this incredible slow cooker chocolate sauce I made a while back.
I've shared some with Mom, but still have at least half a jar stashed in the back of the fridge.
This isn't just any slow cooker chocolate sauce. It's made with dark chocolate chips and seedless raspberry jam.
So, it has a luscious subtle raspberry undertone, that makes it the perfect indulgence, as far as I'm concerned.
And it's versatile too!
You can use it like fondue to dip fruits, marshmallows, or cake cubes.
Or turn it into a topping for ice cream, cake or fresh fruit.
I'm especially fond of it spread on a shortbread cookie.
I think I'll be able to indulge my chocolate desire on Valentine's Day without going overboard.
At least, I'm gonna try!
