Frozen Mousse Brownie Sandwiches

1 package reduced-fat brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
2 cups cold fat-free milk
2 packages (1 ounce each) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
3 tablespoons vanilla or white chips, melted and cooled
1/2 cup reduced-fat whipped topping
my low carb brownie recipe follows:

Line the bottom and sides of two 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-inch baking pans with parchment paper. Coat the paper with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions; divide batter evenly between the pans.
Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until edges just begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool on wire racks.
For mousse: in a bowl, whisk together the milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Stir a small amount of the pudding into the melted chips, then return all to the pudding. Fold in whipped topping.
Cover two large cutting boards or inverted 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in.
baking pans with plastic wrap. Invert one pan of brownies onto prepared board or pan. Gently peel off the parchment paper.
Spread the mousse to within 1/2 in. of edges. Carefully invert second brownie layer onto second board or pan. Gently peel off parchment paper, then place right side up over mousse filling.
Cover and freeze for about 4 hours or until the filling is firm.
Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before cutting into sandwiches.
Individually wrap leftover sandwiches; store in the freezer.

Yield: 15 servings

LC Double Chocolate Walnut Brownies

1 1/2 tablespoons wheat bran, or oat bran
1 1/4 cups plus 1/2 tablespoon soy flour
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 cups sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
1/2 cup heavy cream
5 large eggs
1 tablespoon no sugar added vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray pan with
nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray. Set aside.
Mix wheat bran and 1/2 tablespoon soy flour
together and sprinkle evenly over the inside of
the greased pan, also coating the sides. Place
the unsweetened chocolate and butter in a steel
bowl and melt over a saucepan of simmering water.
Whisk in 1 cup sugar substitute and 1/4 cup
heavy cream. Once thoroughly blended, turn off
heat and keep warm until needed. With an electric
mixer on high, beat the eggs, 1 cup sugar substitute
and the vanilla extract just until blended. Reduce
to low speed and then blend in the chocolate mixture.
With a wooden spoon, mix in the baking powder, 1 1/4
cups soy flour, walnuts, and 1/4 cup heavy cream.
Spread evenly into the prepared pan and bake on the
center rack for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Do not overbake or brownies will be dry and hard. Cool completely)
before frosting with low carb chocolate frosting.

Low Carb Chocolate Frosting:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (not melted)
5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon no sugar added vanilla extract
Few drops hot water, as needed, to thin consistency

Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until well combined. Use to frost brownies, but make sure brownies are completely cooled, or the butter in the frosting will melt.

Those are healthy? They sound decadent. Mine, I guess, is strawberries or grapes with yoghurt/Dream Whip dip.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?
