The Jury Is Still Out On These Brownie Bites...

A friend made these over the summer. She got the recipe at a Weight Watchers meeting. I remember thinking they were fine, but I'm not going to say I LOVE them. I made them for a staff development training my teaching partner and I are presenting tomorrow (bribe 'em with food). It's still a toss up for me because they are only 50 calories each, and one recipe makes 36, but they are not incredibly sweet....and I like my teeth to hurt when I'm eating desserts. I think if you added whipped cream or powdered sugar they would be even better (though a few more calories). So, if you want a low calorie and easy dessert, or you are trying to take something to a calorie aware crowd:
Brownie Bites
1 can of pumpkin (15 oz)
1 box of chocolate cake
Mix the dry cake mix and pumpkin, place about a tablespoon in each mini-muffin well.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
P.s. These went over well, a lot of the gals really liked them and ate multiple Brownie Bites, so...I'd recommend them for a group, especially a group watching their figures. :O)
