Whiskey Wednesday?


What are 2 things college students love?

alcohol and Dessert.

Both of these are things we struggle with while trying to remain healthy.

I love dessert.  I have a sweet tooth and want to fix that everyday.

Alcohol has become a friendly acquaintance at college.  It usually doesn’t get cut when trying to balance my dieting options.

So why not have both for only 90 calories?

Yes.  It is possible.

Frosted Irish Cream Brownies fill both needs.

Start to Finish:2 hr

1 box (1 lb 3.8 oz) fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur

1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened

2 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
