I`m on a diet at the moment and one of the things I miss most is chocolate. This recipe is something I came up with the other day and it gets you that rich chocolate flavor without the calories. Or, at least it does until you add the icing and squish it between two cookies . . . then all bets are off.
Each of these yummy biscuits is just 80 calories, according to the SparkPeople recipe calculator. Again, two cookies with icing, as shown in the photo, is going to be considerably more! Still, these are perfect to have with tea or coffee since they aren`t really sweet at all, but totally deliver the choco-pow.
