You don't have to cross chocolate off your dessert menu, thanks to recipes like this one from Deanne Bagley, "It's simple to satisfy you sweet tooth by draping low-fat pound cake or fat-free ice cream with this rich glossy sauce," she writes from Bath, New York. "Use it to make hot chocolate, too...or as a dip for fresh fruit."

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, cocoa and cornstarch. Stir in milk and coffee until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Store in the refrigerator.
