Mississippi Mud Bars Review and Giveaway - ends 6/19

We had the pleasure recently of reviewing Betty Crocker's new Mississippi Mud Bar mix. Although I try to make sure our family eats healthy most of the time, there are sometimes that a girl just needs some chocolate!

With layers of chocolate cookie crumbs sprinkled over mini marshmallows in a chewy chocolate center and a crunchy chocolate cookie crust, this brand new recipe is sure to impress friends and family. Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars provide an out-of-the-box flavor, with in-the-box convenience. You don’t have to go to Mississippi to snag the mix for these delicious bars; Betty Crocker makes it easy to make a tasty treat anytime, anywhere.

I took the opportunity to let my 2 youngest girls help me in the kitchen.   In no time flat, we had a yummy chocolate treat to share with the family.

Miss Bear helped make up the crust.


Miss Banana got to mix up the bars.


Here is the finished product.  Don't they look yummy?


The verdict...  These were absolutely delicious!  I thought the cookie crust definitely added something special.  These were so rich and moist that everyone in our family wanted seconds.  Definitely two thumbs up from our family!

As a dietitian, I have to admit that these bars wouldn't be something I would serve all the time.  However, they were delicious and would make an awesome treat to take to a family gathering, or maybe for a family game night.  If I made them again, I would reduce the fat content a bit by replacing some of the butter mixed in with the bar mix with an equal amount of fat-free yogurt.  (I would leave the butter in the crust as is however so you don't change the texture.)You can also use unsweetened applesauce as a fat-replacer.  You can generally replace about half of the fat without changing the taste of the recipe.  If you are truly adventurous, you could add a little ground flax seed or wheat germ to up the fiber a bit.  I am a firm believer that as long as you eat healthy most of the time, then a little treat here and there won't hurt you.  I may be a dietitian, but I love chocolate as much as everybody else!  This dessert definitely could help tame even the strongest chocolate cravings!

Thank you so much to Betty  Crocker and My Blog Spark for the opportunity to review this product!
