    I have fat free yogurt, vanila as it's full of flavour and I crush a meringue on to the top and decorate it with strawberrys - looks lovely and it tastes gorgeous - quick easy and v v low points.

    Hi there,

    I too am cooking (pro-point friendly) dinner for my husband next Saturday as a pre-valentine's.

    I plan on doing lots of little courses but for dessert, Fresh fruit kebabs with pineapple, banana, kiwi, strawberries and then two marshmallows on each end :D.

    I am going to melt two ripples and serve the hot melted choccie with them. YUM YUM YUM!

    Roll on next Sat I say!

    What are you planning on doing for the other courses?

    xxxxxxxx

    Wow now you have all given me some good ideas for pudding... For the main I'm using my weekly points for a pot roasted shepherds pie which works out as 31pp. But it's my partners favourite meal and it's not so bad when we have 49pp to play with per week :D

    Try this delicious moist, dark chocolate cake with sweet milk chocolate icing. It's a real treat!

    Ingredients
    180 g Flour, Wheat, White, Plain
    350 g Sugar, Light Brown
    75 g Cocoa Powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons (as purchased) Baking Powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons Bicarbonate of Soda
    300 ml Buttermilk
    3 individual Egg White
    100 g Spread, Low Fat
    1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
    125 ml Milk, Skimmed
    60 g Chocolate, Milk, cooking, broken into pieces
    500 g Sugar, Icing, sifted
    1 pinch Salt
    Instructions
    Preheat oven to Gas Mark 3/170ºC/325ºF. Line 2 x 22 cm round cake tins with greaseproof paper.

    Combine flour, brown sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mix well with a fork to break up brown sugar. Set aside.

    Beat buttermilk, egg whites, 80g of melted spread and 1 teaspoon of vanilla in a large mixing bowl until combined. Gradually beat in 125ml of hot water. Add flour mixture and stir until there are no lumps.

    Pour mixture into cake tins. Bake in oven for about 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool cakes in tins on a rack for 20 minutes. Invert cakes onto rack and cool completely.

    Meanwhile, melt remaining spread in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add chocolate and milk and simmer, stirring for 3 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.

    Transfer to a large mixing bowl and stir in remaining vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cool. Beat icing sugar into mixture using an electric mixer until light.

    Spread 1/3 of icing mixture on top of one cake layer. Top with second cake layer. Spread remaining icing over top and sides. Slice into 16 pieces and serve.
    Notes
    This cake is best made the day it's to be served. The icing however, can be made in advance if it helps, and stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

    Haven't made this, but looks yummy and ya can have it as a nice treat :) although high enough in points just sounds yummy enough :)

    If not the ww eclairs! There yummy and low, no hassle and you can pretend you've made them hehe.

    Are the US weightwatchers points the same as the UK weightwatchers points?
