Add water, click a few buttons on the microwave and have warm molten chocolate cake in minutes! Oh… and it’s only 150 calories?!? (3 wwp) That’s the thought behind Betty Crocker Warm Delight Minis and I think it’s pretty genius. However, you won’t catch me buying them anytime soon. There is enough temptation in my life already. I don’t need to know that on a whim I can make warm chocolate cake when ever I want. Seriously, that’s just a disaster waiting to happen.
That’s not to say they weren’t good. I had them in the pantry for weeks then one night the husband and I wanted something sweet before bed. So we made the two I was sent to review. To my surprise he actually liked it and so did I. How can you not like warm chocolate cake? It’s WARM CHOCOLATE CAKE! Of course we were both disappointed by the size but for 150 calories what did we really expect?
These are the kind of products you have to take at face value. You want something sweet? A controlled portion instead of eating a honking slice? then yeah, if you are going to eat it anyway, then chose the lesser evil. BUT don’t kid yourself, it’s still evil. First 3 ingredients… Sugar, Enriched Flour Bleached, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and/or Cottonseed Oil –YIKES!
In the product’s defense they aren’t making any health claims besides the calories. They literally are just "mini" versions of their traditional cake mixes made for the individual who needs to cure a chocolate craving FAST! For that, they do do.
