This Weight Watcher's Butterfinger Dessert is a layer of angel food cake, vanilla pudding, cool whip, and Butterfinger candy bars. Everything was made with fat-free ingredients besides the Butterfinger bars of course.
One of my FAVORITE things to do is figure out how to make recipes more Weight Watcher friendly or lower in points so that you can still be able to enjoy all those yummy and trending recipes that you see floating around on social media such as Pinterest. Like this recipe for Butterfinger Dessert Trifle. You might think how are Butterfinger candy bars diet friendly? Well, let me tell you, something friend. You can eat ANYTHING you want just as long as you stay within your calorie deficit or daily points. It's not every day you eat like this as well. I like to save these type of recipes for the weekends. I know I'll get the skeptics out there who wonder how on Earth is this a Weight Watcher recipe?
How is this a WW recipe?
NO FOOD is off limits on WW and WW themselves stresses that a lot on their social media pages. Check out their Instagram page. That is one reason why I love WW. You can pretty much eat ANYTHING to lose weight just as long as you stay in your daily points range or are in a calorie deficit.
Ingredients for Butterfinger Dessert
Angel Food Cake Mix - You can make your own box of Angel Food cake mix (the 15oz box) or use a prepared cake from the store. Use a 12 oz can of diet coke or 15 oz can of crushed pineapple instead of what the ingredients call for on the back. This will help add any extra points to the cake mix.
Pudding - Use sugar-free fat free vanilla pudding mix with 1% or skim milk
Cool Whip - Heavy whipping cream can be used here but that would kind of defeat the purpose of making this lower in calories.
Butterfingers - Don’t like butterfinger bars? Use any of your favorite candy bars instead.
