20 Decadent Dessert Recipes for When Your Sweet Tooth Is Insatiable

Chocolate, cupcakes, cookies—it’s all here. And it all fits into your SmartPoints Budget.

What should you do when losing weight is the goal but dessert is the most important meal of the day? On WW Freestyle™, you can watch the scale go down while still enjoying cookies, cupcakes, ice cream—whatever your sweet tooth desires.

After all, healthy eating is all about striking a balance, whether that means going for the ZeroPoint™ salad so that you have room in your Budget for a brownie or using Rollovers to enjoy cake at a birthday party. However you choose to fit dessert into your eating plan is up to you. That’s the beauty of a flexible program.

So, while there’s nothing wrong with grabbing a sweet treat from the supermarket or bakery (hey, you’re busy!), there’s something seriously satisfying about mixing up your own dessert from scratch. Think fresh-from-the-oven cookies oozing with melty, gooey chocolate. Is there anything better? Nope, there isn’t.

Suddenly in the mood for something sweet? Well, you’re in for a treat. The 20 recipes below are almost too tasty. The cherry on top? Each recipe has less than five SmartPoints® per serving. You can thank us later.
