So last year I told yall I was going to do something about my weight, and I did I signed up for Weight Watchers new SmartPoints program and I’m happy to say that I’m doing great! I won’t reveal my weight loss just yet because I’m afraid I might jinx myself, but let’s just say this new Smart Points program is a lot easier to stick with than the old Point Plus. So I’m not a huge sweets person, but when that craving hits I really want to indulge. I saw a recipe for a Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie a while back and I’ve been wanting to try it. Now that I’m on WW I have to be cautious about my points so I revamped the recipe a bit to make it more WW friendly.  Now I’m saying a bit because once I reveal the points you’re gonna be like girl what?? Trust me it’s so worth it though. Plus, for me being on WW isn’t about being on a diet it’s a lifestyle change.

Now before you begin to question my points, trust me I only ate 1/3 of one of the skillets and had to dig into my weeklies though the cookie was so warm and gooey I could have devoured the whole thing. I try to keep that side of me repressed.  Pair this Chocolate Chip Skillet cookie with your favorite ice cream and add your favorite toppings. I went with a low-fat Vanilla Ice Cream and a low-fat chocolate syrup. The recipe makes two skillet cookies and 1/3 of a cookie is 16 points (see told ya).
