Whipped Cream Cheese Gets a Twist

Weight Watchers Cheese has recently added two delicious new varieties to its lineup of whipped cream cheeses: Chocolate and Chocolate Raspberry. The new whipped cream cheese flavors are perfect for putting to use in inventive yet simple recipes that push whipped cream cheese’s repertoire beyond the typical bagel. Now, Weight Watchers has made up a few recipes but I tried one of my own for this product.

I found my new favorite frosting. Ok, so maybe it’s not really frosting so much as it is a whipped chocolate cream cheese spread, however it makes the most amazing frosting!! Weight Watchers has come up with new reduced fat Whipped Chocolate and Whipped Chocolate Raspberry cream cheese spreads that are out of this world. Not only do they have 33% less fat than whipped cream cheese spreads, they are also only 60 calories per serving and have 2g of fiber per serving. When I first opened these spreads, I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with them, but after taste testing with a spoon I decided that if nothing else I would just eat it with a spoon!! That’s how delicious these cream cheese spreads are to eat! Alright, maybe that wasn’t the best decision on how to eat it, so I opted to try it as a frosting. I found a recipe for chocolate chip cookie cupcakes (they are amazing) that uses a cream cheese frosting. It is a match made in heaven!! I no longer need to make my own cream cheese frosting for anything-Weight Watchers Whipped Chocolate cream cheese spread is my new favorite. I can’t wait to try it on a chocolate chip bagel for breakfast or dip pretzels in it for a low fat snack!

Weight Watchers has done it again-another deliciously successful product!

Mrs. Fields Brookie Pan

I know — you are all asking, what is a brookie? Seriously, it is the best thing since sliced bread. Okay, maybe not that good, but pretty darn close.

I am always looking for something that makes my life easier but doesn’t make it look like I took a shortcut. This pan does just that. It will make you look awesome the next party you bring this too or the bake sale at your kids school. (Parents from my kids school, quit reading now. I want you to think I slaved over my hot oven all day long.) :)

This is the Mrs. Field’s Brookie Pan. This is where the magic happens. First, you fill the outside cavity with brown mix. I highly recommend using a spoon to do this. Next, you place a baked cookie on the center island. You can bake that yourself or cheat and buy a cookie that is 2.5″ – 3″ in diameter. You can use whatever kind of cookie you want too. I used chocolate chip. You then fill the remainder of the cavity with brownie mix until the cookie is covered. Stop adding mix when the cookie is covered though. Otherwise, your brookie will look like this:

You will lose your cookie in the brownie. However, my kids said they still tasted awesome. LOL

This is more of what you want:

Bake the brookie’s according the recipe. Start checking your brookies about 5 minutes before they are suppose to be done. Remove from the oven when the toothpick comes out clean:

You then remove from your oven and let cool. Serve upside down so everyone can see the cookie!

Fun and easy! I highly recommend the Mrs. Field’s Brookie Pan!

The Dipr

Dunking just got a whole lot easier! The Dipr is a spoon that holds your sandwich cookie while you dip it in milk or any other liquid. The Dipr cradles the cookie by the cream and prevents it from crumbling when dunked.

This is truly one of those products that you hit yourself in the head and wonder why didn’t I think of that!

As you can see, my 5 year old had absolutely no problem using The Dipr. We actually had to hide the Oreos to get him to stop eating them, because this made it way too easy! :) Kids of all ages will love The Dipr (that includes big kids too!). You also can’t have just one in your house, because everybody will want one! You also need a big supply of cookies, because your kids will want to try all different kinds too!

I highly recommend The Dipr. It is good fun!
