Low Calorie DESSERT!

Tyler and I love dessert. In fact, I think I love eating dessert more that I love eating real food! My waistline doesn't share the affection.

Now that I've been trying to slim down and get my pre-baby body back, I thought I had to cut dessert off the menu. Buuuuuut, then last night I had a craving for something sweet. Get this: Dessert that WON'T undo your day! What?! Yep. Check out this crazy concoction I like to call Berry Cups (you can use almost any berry... but I'd stick to blackberry, raspberry, or blueberry).

This recipe makes 4 dessert cups (think 2 per person or 2 servings)

1/4 c fresh blackberries (15.5 calories)
10-12 (about 1/2 c) mini marshmallows (40 calories)
1 - 7" wonton/egg roll wrapper (93 calories)

Total: 148.5 calories (or 74.25 calories per serving)

Preheat oven to 375*

Cut wonton wrapper in 4 equal parts. I folded mine and tore and it worked like a charm. Line 4 spots in mini muffin tin with wonton wrapper

Half each of the marshmallows with scissors.

Mash blackberries and spoon into the bottom of the wrapper. Sprinkle with marshmallows.

Bake for 10 minutes or until marshmallows are almost gone and tips of wrapper are golden brown.

If your cups are a little tart, don't hesitate to add a sprinkle of powdered sugar (1 tsp = 10 calories).

So good and not so bad.
