Frozen Chocolate Brownies

Looking for a frozen dessert that is healthy, nutritious and sinfully delicious? Look no further.  Frozen Chocolate Brownies, the piece-de-resistance at the end of a fabulous dinner for two.  Prepare a large tray for family get-togethers or the corporate pot-luck lunch.  This is a sure-fire way to put the finishing touches on any occasion.

Lady Locavore was recently enjoying a little one-one time with her big sister. “Girl’s Night Out” was the occasion.  It was late in the afternoon; too early to meet the girls just yet, so chatting, laughing and sharing was in order.  Knowing my passion for chocolate and how much I like very healthy things and that dessert being the best part of any meal, Sis, with those priorities in mind, decided to offer me dessert first, an amuse-bouche along with a glass of my favourite beverage, before going out.  She had this decadent guilt-free dessert which was just sitting in the freezer begging to be enjoyed. “Want to try something new? Something chocolate? Something really good?” “Why, of course!” was my immediate reaction.  The texture and taste of these frozen treats is amazing.
