It is important to ust to eat healthy. When I got the chance to play around in the kitchen with some pomegranate juice from POM Wonderful, I was excited to turn out some great dinner recipe that was super healthy.
Well, I’m ashamed to say that my sweet tooth won out
A good friend of mine runs Rumble in the Kitchen, a great cooking blog. She has a recipe over there for the Ultimate Fast Chocolate Fix. I have made it before and it is great. It’s kind of like a fast, hot brownie. I love the flavor of POM Wonderful’s 100% Pomegranate Juice and the thought of it paired with chocolate was just too much to resist trying
I whipped up the recipe changing it only slightly to include the POM juice. Here’s the recipe that I used:
Sauce: In a small cup, mix this up, microwave for 20-30 seconds, mix again and then chill.
Grab a small bowl, thoroughly mix up all of the cake ingredients and then microwave for 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 minutes. You might need to play with this. Our old machine took 3 minutes, our new one takes 3 1/2. Let it sit for a minute, top with your cooled sauce and enjoy!
When I popped this out of the microwave my son came out of his room and I heard him say “Mmmm, something smells GOOD!” I got out three little plates and cut a slice for me, my son and my oldest daughter. I saved a little for later too. The kids enjoyed it (my daughter’s face, arms and legs especially enjoyed it). I loved the flavor of this. It was like eating a giant chocolate covered cranberry. As soon as I get more cocoa powder, I’ll be enjoying this again
