Cocoa Fudge Cookies

It’s Friday night which means time for a treat. Nothing satisfies my sweet tooth more than chocolate. These little babies, satisfy my chocolate cravings without “breaking the bank” in the calories area. They take only minutes to make, are chewy and are under 80 calories each. My only complaint is that this recipe only makes two dozen cookies which can disappear in minutes around my house! Might need to double this recipe.

So today was my staff Amanda’s Birthday. As with all my friends and families birthday’s I like to make a special treat to celebrate. I mean life is too short to not eat cake!! However, as a Fitness professional it’s not easy cooking for your fitness staff. As much as they enjoy a treat, they are also health conscious like myself so practice moderation whenever possible. Therefore, sometimes the task of cooking a celebratory treat can be tricky. I’m always up to the challenge.

To please everyone’s palette’s, I decided to prepare two treats. One “naughty,” and one “nice”! My staff couldn’t tell the difference. The “nice” treat was moist and yummy and super chocolaty. Not that the “naughty” one wasn’t mouthwatering, but it just goes to prove that “nice” doesn’t mean tasteless!
