    Similar - I buy the Splenda Chocolate Brownie mix and add 1 can of BLACK BEANS - do not add the water or oil or eggs - just the mix and black beans - puree and bake according to directions. Mmmm delish! protein, fiber, chocolate - really TRY IT - it's awesome.

    I make this with a low fat chocolate cake mix. I add 2 T of mini chocolate chips (they go farther than the larger ones) and cook them in cupcake tins (use cupcake liners and spray them because this mixture sticks). I keep them in my freezer and pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds when I need a sweet treat.
