Halo Top Fudge Brownie Light Brownie Mix Brownies

Are you familiar with Halo Top? I first learned of Halo Top ice cream years ago in a Weight Watchers workshop. (Your fellow WW members are a reliable source for staying updated on the newest and best-for-you food products.)

Halo Top ice cream packs fewer calories compared to your typical ice cream, with each pint ranging from 280 to 380 calories. Plus, it’s loaded with extra protein to help you stay satisfied longer. And when it comes to flavors, they’ve got you covered – from timeless classics like chocolate and vanilla to fun options like birthday cake, cookie dough, and mocha chocolate chip.

The company has expanded its offering to include fruit pops, yogurt bars, and baking mixes. We first tried the Halo Top Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Light Cookie Mix and were eager to try out their Fudge Brownie Light Brownie Mix next.

We were pleasantly surprised and would definitely bake them again. The brownies turned out dense and fudgy, with a delicious chocolate flavor that wasn’t overly sweet. I’ll be honest, they’re not quite on par with Ghirardelli brownie mix brownies, but they definitely hit the spot when I was craving something sweet and chocolatey.

More Halo Top Fudge Brownie Light Brownie Mix Reviews

Here’s what some reviewers on-line had to say:

“Halo makes a lot of great ice cream, never tried their mixes but I am glad I did. Everyone in the house loved them!!!”
“If there was one, my only complaint would be that they were a bit dryer than I would like with brownies. Still a good taste. These brownies are a great combo with the Halo Top lite peanut butter ice cream.”
“These brownies are moist and absolutely delicious for being so little calories. Love these as an after dinner treat!!”
“These brownies are incredibly fudgy and rich, with a taste that hits the mark perfectly. While they might lack the shiny crackle on top like traditional full-sugar brownies, they excel in every other aspect—soft, chewy, dense, yet with a delightful springiness.”
“Compared to Fiber One brownies, these are a clear winner in every regard. Each piece weighs approximately 60g (in contrast to two Fiber One brownies at 50g and 140 calories), offering fewer calories per gram while still delivering the moist, authentic brownie experience, unlike the dry, erythritol-aftertaste crumbly bars of lackluster sweetness.”
“After trying countless low-calorie brownie recipes and feeling unsatisfied, I had almost given up hope of finding a suitable substitute for the real deal. These brownies, while not extremely low in calories, still manage to significantly reduce calorie intake and sugar content to almost negligible levels. In comparison, a similarly sized Betty Crocker brownie packs around 200-250 calories and closer to 30g of sugar.”

How To Make Halo Top Brownies Better

There’s a person on Reddit who claims to have perfected how to make Halo Top Brownie Mix better. Here’s the alternative instructions that we intend to test soon to see how they compare:

The ingredients:

1 package dry mix 
3 tablespoons (46g) egg whites
¼ cup (56g) low fat cottage cheese, blended until creamy
6 ounces  water
½ teaspoon baking powder
Optional: sugar-free chocolate chips/chunks. I crumbled up 27g Gatsby sea salt dark chocolate 

The instructions:

Preheat oven 20 325 degrees. Lightly grease 11×7-inch glass baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, combine all the wet ingredients, then add in all the dry ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake at 325°F for 33-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean. It’s crucial not to over bake; otherwise, you’ll dry them out and lose that coveted fudgy texture, resulting in more of a cake-like consistency.

The notes:

The batter may be a bit runny for this method. If you want to add chocolate chips or chunks, I suggest doing so halfway through the baking process to ensure they stay on top. Adding them before baking might cause them to sink to the bottom. Even if they’re not as visually appealing, they’ll still be delicious—I mean, we polished off the whole pan in just two days anyway!
