I only microwave mine for 45 seconds. Any longer and it's like eating rocks!..

Comment #1

I nuke mine for 1 minute and it is gooey in the middle... sometimes I put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes... yumm!..

Comment #2

I only microwave them for 1 minute then they're gooey and yummy..

Comment #3

It's good to bear in mind that microwaves can have different wattages and therefore affect outcomes in cooking. I like my brownies moist, but done, so I cook mine per package instructions. Being in Texas, I don't think altitude is an issue for you. May just want to adjust your cooking time, as the above posters have done. I love the flavor of themthey've helped me get through some bake-sale baking!..

Comment #4

I hear putting red pepper flakes make them even better!..

Comment #5

I add 1/4 t. vanilla to the mix and then 2 t. only of a low-fat, non-fat frozen yogurt or vanilla ice cream. Ice cream melts on the brownie and yum. It's not 100% OP as it's dairy, but is still low cal and low carb. It's the only thing that's kept me on Medifast and losing weight...

Comment #6

Put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes as soon as you nuke it. To me, that makes all the difference in the world. (Make sure to spray PAM or something on the tray before microwaving it.) :-)..

Comment #7

Yes you may have to adjust the cooking time. Perhaps a little more water if you want it moister.......I add PB2 and mix it in. To me it needs a little something as my tastes change...

Comment #8

I mix mine with coffee instead of water. Delicious every time!..

Comment #9

I put a half a tbl spoon of peanut butter on top, tastes like a peanut butter cup. yum..

Comment #10

Never occurred to me to use coffee love that idea, can't wait!..

Comment #11

UH-OH... I have read about using coffee to make the brownies, but I haven't tried it as coffee does not last long at my house once it is made.... BUT I just remembered I use Dunkin Donut French Vanilla coffee and Starbucks Carmel coffee.... Hmmmmm, I think I can save out 3 TBS next time and try this!!! Mmmmmmm!!!.

I use coffee instead of water in my brownies. I also cook for only 1 minute. I then put 1 tbsp of Walden Farms marshmallow on top and pop in the frig for 15 minutes. The marshmallow turns into what seems like icing to me. A little goes a long way with the WF products though...

Comment #13

I've tried making them three times each time diff temp, water, time. They ALWAYS come out like goop. Today I tried the oven instead of the microwave and my oven started smoking. My mom thinks it's unwise to put a plasitc container into an oven (mines electric but still) ...

Comment #14

Might check out SunshineDay's blog from early this morning. There are *pictures*. I, however, love the brownie just as it is. It is probably my favorite Medifast food so far! I sometimes put a small spoonful of FF Cool Whip on top just a few min after taking it out of microwave and it kinda melts and makes like this sweet glaze on the top. But for the most part...just like it is. And I can never wait to let it sit before I eat it...I love warm gooey deliciousness!..

Comment #15

I use diet coke instead of water. Works out to be a little over 3 1/2 table spoons of diet coke. Gives a better "sweet" taste and makes it fluff up a lot more. I wouldn't ever go back to making them with water...

Comment #16

I second the freezer idea...to me that makes them taste like chocolate brownies instead of a soy cake. Don't get me started on the hot chocolate though, I can't take the smell!..

Comment #17

I don't cook my brownies. I put 1 Tbsp. light cream cheese in the brownie container, nuke it for about 20 seconds (enough to make it creamy), then put the brownie powder and water in. Stir it up good, and it's like a chocolate cream cheese frosting!..

Comment #18

I do this too and it is great! Also, sometimes I will use a healthy fat and take whipped cream cheese & 1 packet of splenda, mix it together and add on top. SO YUMMY! It saves me on birthday cake days at work...

Comment #19

I do like eating the "raw" brownie dough. Try mixing with cherry-flavored sparkling water, too, for a choco-cherry brownie...

Comment #20

Wow, some great ideas! I also use coffee instead of water. I also chop a little walnut (I'm sure this is probably off-plan but I don't know by how much) and mix it in. Because my microwave runs on the cool side I nuke it for 1.25 minutes and then (once it has "rested" the suggested 3-4 minutes) top it with a little of the fat free cool whip. It tastes great !!!.

For the medifasters who have problems with the hot cocoa - this is how I do it. First, the hot cocoa is one of the items that if you do not use extremely cold water it will not mix well. So I start out with one or two small ice cubes and a small amount of water. Empty your packet on top of the water/ice - this is important! Whisk very well until it resembles a watery paste. Then I add a generous 1/2 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa (I use Ghirardelli) and mix well and then add the remaining water while still whisking. I have this every day and love it. When I first tried the cocoa I couldn't stand it, particulary since I could not get it to mix well...

Comment #21

I mix mine with 1 tablespoon of egg whites and bake in the oven for 21 minutes at 350. I bake 3 or 4 at a time and then keep them in the fridge....Sometimes I will sprinkle splenda on them before baking and it makes them yummy...I warm them up in the microwave for about 20 seconds or eat them cold......

Comment #22

I found that I like it better in the microwave and I don't add any flavoring. It tasted funny when I did. I use a little FF cream cheese w/Sf choco syrup and sweetener on the top of it like icing...

Comment #23

I made some last night for the second time and the first time they were disgusting. Here's what I did:.

Mix the packet of brownies, 1/4 cup of water, 1 Tbsp of eggbeaters, 1 tsp peanut butter, a few dashes of salt, 1/8 tsp of baking powder, and bake it in THE OVEN at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until the center isn't extremely jiggly (depending on how gooey you like your brownie, but still give it at least 12 minutes so it's not soup). I then put mine in the freezer for 20 minutes just to firm it up, and took 1/4 tsp peanut butter and a drizzle of SF chocolate syrup and spread them on top and it was quite tasty! Huge step up from last time. I find that baking it in the oven makes a huge difference and actually gives it a crust and it turns out denser and not rubbery, so if you're already baking something in the oven, just mix up a brownie, throw it in, and save it for later! Also, if you're not into peanut butter, just toast up a few walnut halves and toss them on top. That would be delicious as well...

Comment #24

Danafwlr...that sounds yummy, but I counted 5 condiments that was used and the walnuts are a snack option....

My brownie comes out great in micro...I have taken one packet of my any flavor shakes and mixed it into a frosting texture and keep it in a covered bowl in frig and when I make my brownies and pancakes I just pull out the frosting and spread......

Be true to yourself.

Oxoxoxo..

Comment #25

I eat one everyday! Generous water (although I wil try the diet coke idea) and 50 - 55 seconds in the microwave. Stir to mix the dry spots with moist and eat warm. I use a tiny little fork (pickle fork) and savor the moments. Who knew you could you could have chocolate and loose weight too!Life is Good!..

Comment #26

Hee hee hee...judging by all the responses in so short a time, I think we're ALL brownie addicts!!! Here's mine....

Pour packet into container. Add 1 TBSP SF Chocolate Syrup & 1 TBSP SF Raspberry Syrup. Then add 1.5 TBSP water. Stirrrrrrrr. Nuke for 55 secs. Top with juuuust a leetle Reddi Whip...

Comment #27

Brownies did someone say brownies?.

I eat them 100% dry from of the package. I always have and love them that way..

When I ate them mixed with water or mixed and baked, they just didnt satisfy as much..

Dry, they are are much more satisfying to me , and the chips stay whole, thus, I get lots of choc feel and taste in my mouth. I know this so SOOOOO wierd, but it works so well to me...

Comment #28

I've never had an issue- I do the exact 1 min 15 seconds and they come out perfect each time..

Comment #29

Ooooo I have to try the red pepper flakes and the coffee ideas not at the same time tho!.

I like them b/c they are portable - for some reason I ran out of bars quickly this month, but had extra brownies - I made them & popped into baggies so I could take them with me - really easy!.

Plus good to have at work, b/c rather than grabbing a bar & gobbling, I had to get a few steps in by walking to the kitchen & making them...

Comment #30

OK, so I tried the red pepper flakes- good.

Then I got wacky & added cinnamon & some green chili powder (from a set of New Mexico seasonings) OMG!! YOWZA!! DEEEEELISH! Like those gourmet chocolates some of my clients bring in around the holidays... even more reason to not have to indulge in those when I can do that craziness myself!.

The original hot chocolate supposedly had red chili in it - it was spicy and not too sweet.

There's a shop in Santa Fe called The Chocolate Maven that has a killler hot cocoa mix that has chili in it (and lots of sugar & calories!) I"m going to doctor up my next hot chocolate shipment with some chili and not feel deprived again!!..

Comment #31

Birdle, I did the same thing. I am so protective of my condiments, but the whole chili powder idea sounded so good. So..I sprinkled my cocoa (yeah I know..nothing to do with brownies) with cayenne pepper. 1/8 tsp. It was so good. To me the brownies need nothing so I won't be messing with them...

Comment #32

Mixing w/coffee~~~~great idea!!! A mocha expresso choco brownie! I'm gonna try that!..

Comment #33

These are all great ideas thanks so much everyone! I'm trying mine for the first time so I stopped here to make sure I'll get it right lol..

Comment #34

Just had my first brownie and it was DELICIOUS!!! I def needed more than the 3 tablespoons of water, I was careful not to put too much in it, heated in the microwave for 45 seconds and dug in, tastes just like the real thing! I may become addicted......

Comment #35

I use the PB2 powder (peanut butter) and add 1 TBSP Walden Farms Calorie Free Chocolate syrup. As I mix it, I add water to make it look like a brownie mix. VERY good!! I love Walden Farms stuff...as a side note! :-).

Love the coffee idea though! Thanks!..

Comment #36

After 2 failed attempts and 1 amazing delicious success-my tip is: spray the little cooking dish with PAM.

Or else, you'll be licking and biting at the container to get all the the stuck-on brownie parts (picture me doing this, at work! medifast food is expensive, I wanted every last bite)..
