Serves 1

Use a high fiber cereal and high-quality chocolate to make this microwaved dessert (a 106-calorie treat). Research shows that people are more likely to over-eat milk chocolate than darker varieties, so bittersweet is called for here.

1/3 cup high-fiber cereal (such as Fiber One or All-Bran Extra Fiber)
1 square (10 grams) bittersweet chocolate
1/3 cup nonfat or 1 percent milk
2 drops pure mint extract (optional)
1. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, place the cereal with the chocolate square on top. Microwave on high power for 20 to 40 seconds or until the chocolate melts but is not bubbling.

2. Remove from the oven. With a fork, stir the mixture until the cereal is nicely coated. Leave to cool.

3. Add milk and mint extract, if you like.
