In the Kitchen: Easy Berry Cobbler

I love dessert! But, sweets aren’t the best food choices in order to stick to the Weight Watcher plan. I don’t deprive myself of anything…that is what is great about Weight Watchers, it's not a diet – it's a lifestyle. You can have whatever you want, as long as you count the points.

I have the perfect summer-time cobbler recipe that is Weight Watcher- friendly! I serve it all of the time in the summer. It has become one of my signature desserts. You will be surprised at how EASY it is to make, and the best part is that no one suspects that it is a Weight Watcher recipe.
You will need:

1 Yellow Box Cake Mix

2 – 1lb Bags of Frozen Mixed Berries (do not use fresh berries)
12 oz. Diet Sprite (you can substitute with Diet Sierra Mist or Diet 7-Up)
9 x 13 baking dish
**Yields 12 Servings - 6 Points per serving**

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Evenly distribute the frozen berries in the 9 x 13 baking dish. I like to use a glass baking dish, but you can use whatever kind you have.

Next, pour the unprepared cake mix over the berries. Try to distribute the cake mix evenly. DO NOT mix it up.

Now, measure 12 oz. of Diet Sprite (or other diet lemon-lime soda). Evenly pour the soda over the top of the cobbler. It will fizz up and mix in with the cake mix automatically. You do not need to mix anything up, just let it settle naturally.

That's all of the preparation!
Now, it's time to get it in the oven. Place the cobbler in the 350 degree oven. 

Set the timer for approximately 25 minutes. After letting it bake for 25 minutes, check on it. The berries should start to bubble and the top should start to get golden brown.

It's not time to take it out of the oven quite yet. Set the timer for another 15 minutes. When the 15 minutes is up, your cobbler should be ready! The top will be a nice golden brown (don't worry, some of the cake mix will still be white), and the berries will be bubbling. Your total baking time is approximately 45 minutes, however you may need to adjust the baking time according to your oven. 

Take it out of the oven. Voila! You have a delicious berry cobbler. The cobbler yields 12 servings. Each serving is 6 points. Remember to watch your portions!
You can serve it warm with whipped cream or low-fat ice cream (make sure to count the extra points though). Or, you can let it cool and serve it later. Leave it out at room temperature or put it in the refrigerator.  
I hope you give this recipe a try! Try different variations and experiment with it! I would love to know how it turns out. I am sure your friends and family will LOVE it! It is certainly a favorite in our house!
