One night I goofed, accidentally using the balsamic butter I save for grilling chicken on my pound cake. What a delicious mistake that my entire family loved! For a patriotic look, add a drizzle of blueberry syrup. —Moira McGarry, Parkman, Maine

"I've made this cake several times and it's always delicious," Pat Bertram promises from Attica, Michigan. And because there are only a few grams of fat per serving, you can enjoy a slice without guilt.

Savor all the decadence without a lick of guilt! We kept all the velvety, melt-in-your-mouth texture of fudgy fondue in this lusciously lighter version. It's just the thing to kindle romantic after-dinner conversation or welcome friends in from the cold. Dark Chocolate Fondue also makes a delectable way to dress up chunks of pineapple, slices of banana or scoops of fat-free frozen yogurt. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
