You don't have to cross chocolate off your dessert menu, thanks to recipes like this one from Deanne Bagley, "It's simple to satisfy you sweet tooth by draping low-fat pound cake or fat-free ice cream with this rich glossy sauce," she writes from Bath, New York. "Use it to make hot chocolate, too...or as a dip for fresh fruit."
