Chocolate Friday - healthy chocolate cake?

Oh my. You HAVE to go to Lisa's and check out her post today. She's having a giveaway...chocolate of course. You'll drool. Seriously.


Now to share my chocolate with you today. Here's a recipe I found this morning and I just had to post it. I haven't tried it yet, but I will. I just need to go buy some eggs. You can see my priorities...I have all the chocolate I need to make this...I just need the eggs. :)

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
