I know that Weight Watchers doesn’t like sugar – and you should cut back as much as you can on it – but really…a little here and there won’t kill you.  

I actually made sure that these used real sugar instead of a sugar substitute.  I also didn’t feel like trying to figure out the Stevia to sugar conversion (if we are being honest).

This is probably no secret, but I do love chocolate.  These chocolate chips (affiliate link) are my all time favorite things ever, and they are used in this recipe.

I like them because they are still very rich, but give you that amazing chocolate flavor.  I pop them in my mouth after dinner (16 are only 4 SmartPoints) and bam.

You don’t have to use the chocolate that I did, but the SmartPoints might be affected because you use milk chocolate.
