Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies | WW 1 Points Plus

Everyone needs a little guilt free snacking every once and a while, and these little cookies are just the ticket. Packed with a chocolate punch, they really satisfy, and at 1 points plus per - why not have a couple, seriously, you deserve it. 

I can't decide whether I like the new weight watchers as much as I like the old one, the weight definitely comes off slower, but you are given way more snacking options as fruits and vegetables are free, even bananas - oh, how I missed bananas on the old plan. 

So, new plan - you eat more, you lose weight slower, hey, I'm not getting in a bikini anytime soon, so I can take my time. Although one thing that sucks the big one on the new plan is that wine is twice as many points as on the old plan - like a stake through the heart that one was.

Those look really good. But is it the kind of thing where one is 1 pt but 2 are three pts? I hate that bullshit. And I also hate the new plan because I can't do it in my head anymore, AND because things like light wheat bread which is basically air anyway went from 1 to 2 pts. I'll try these though, maybe I'll replace bread with cookies.

brenna, i just checked and yep - two cookies are 3 points. so what i do is have a cookie with a sugar free hot cocoa with fat free whipped cream and the whole little package is only three points for the whole thing.
