Double Chocolate Cherry Chipotle Bars


Guest recipe by

Chocolate, no wait, double chocolate love. Yes, that is what we need- or want- for some. These bars provide three dimensions of flavors with each bite. As you bite down, your teeth will pass a soft fudgy layer, followed by a crunch from the chocolate crust. The third dimension, and the unique flavor, comes from No Ketchup’s Cherry Chipotle Sauce. These bars will not only make you dance with each bite, they will give you cold chills from the amazing flavors melting in your mouth. Who’s ready to enjoy a Double Chocolate Cherry Chipotle Bar?

Prep: 20 min | Cook: 55 min | Yield: 6-9 bars


For Crust:

1 3/4 cup chocolate graham cracker crumbs (7.5oz box of Annie’s Homegrown Bunny Chocolate Grahams ground finely)
1/2 cup ( 1 stick) salted butter, melted

For Brownie:

1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
1 3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup Not Ketchup Cherry Chipotle Sauce
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cooking spray on 9 x9 inch square pan, or line pan with parchment paper.

For Crust:

Note: Buy chocolate graham crumbs already ground up, or if in cracker form, grind in food processor.

In small sauce pot, melt down 1/2 cup butter. In small bowl, mix together melted butter and chocolate graham crumbs. Spread out evenly in prepared pan, and press down well.

For Brownies:

In a double boiler pan, (or use metal pan that will sit over medium sauce pot). Add one inch of water to pan, set stove top to medium-high heat. Add chocolate chips and butter to metal bowl, melt down, stir frequently.

In medium bowl, add white sugar, and eggs and with electric hand mixer, mix together for 2 minutes or until fluffy and smooth in appearance. Add Not Ketchup Cherry Chipotle Sauce and mix for another 30 second. Then add in melted chocolate and butter into batter and mix for another 30 seconds. With spatula, fold in flour and baking powder.

Add the brownie batter on top of the chocolate graham crust, and spread the batter out evenly.

Bake brownies for 45-55 minutes depending on oven. You want the batter to have a more solid appearance, but still be fudgy in the center. Let cool.

How a Kitchen Scale Can Help You Lose Weight

How a Kitchen Scale Can Help You Lose Weight

A kitchen scale is a must-have tool for anyone serious about weight loss. When preparing meals, it is nearly impossible to eyeball a serving size, and most people overestimate portion sizes. Using a kitchen scale teaches you what an actual serving of food looks like. Additionally, a food scale will give you an accurate weight, so you can easily calculate the amount of calories on your plate. Keeping your meals and snacks in check will help you reach your health and fitness goals.

Calories and nutrients are usually based on weight

Measuring cups and spoons leave room for error. It’s easy to overload them, and food can vary in volume which makes measuring cups unreliable. The best way to get an accurate serving size is to measure your food on one of our digital kitchen scales, especially when eating calorie dense foods, such as cheese, pasta or avocado. This video shows portion sizes for cheese and steak from our blogger friend Girls Gone Sporty.

Serving sizes are difficult to guess

You may read that one bagel is 245 calories, but that’s based on a 98g serving size. Many stores and food chains have bagels that are much larger than 98g. In fact, you may be eating 400 calories before you even add a topping! Small, medium and large servings vary and, as a result, so do the calories. This is why measuring by weight is necessary. This is what a serving size of pretzels looks like using the Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale.

No more guessing portion sizes

It can be shocking to see what an actual serving of certain foods looks like. You may think you know the portion size of your favorite food, but it’s often an eye opener to measure a true portion by weight. Our Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale eliminates the guesswork when measuring out your foods. This video by our blogger friend Cassie Gant, demonstrates how use an EatSmart kitchen scale to count calories in a serving of halibut.

Unreliable estimated serving sizes on packaged food

Many packaged foods, such as cereals, snacks, and nuts, give the calories by weight and an estimated serving size. When you actually weigh a cup of cereal you may see that it’s closer to one and half servings, rather than one. This may not seem like a big deal for lower calorie foods, but throughout the day these additional calories make a big difference. Most packaged foods give their weight in ounces or grams, so all of our kitchen scales weigh in both units so you always have a precise measurement. Here’s a great video showing how to measure a serving size of carrots from our blogger friend Erica D House.

eatsmart-nutrition-scaleKeep track of key nutrients

Knowing that your portions are on point allows you to accurately keep track of your calorie and carb intake. It makes managing diabetes or sticking to a diet plan much easier. Our Digital Nutrition Scale – Professional Food and Nutrient Calculator calculates calories, carbs, fiber, sodium, fats and other nutrients so you don’t have to.

Dine out with confidence

After you get into a habit of weighing your foods, you will have a much better idea of what a standard portion looks like. This is helpful when you are dining out or are at a party and don’t have access to your Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale. It will become easy to recognize when your dish of food is two portions, and you can take the additional serving home as a leftover. Just look how quickly this plate of Thanksgiving leftovers added up to 1 pound of food!EATSMARTKITCHEN SCALE - leftover-thanksgiving

How to Stick to Healthy Habits While on Vacation

healthy eating habits while on vacation

Are you looking forward to some well-deserved time off this summer? Vacations are an excellent way to rest, relax, and recharge your batteries. At the same time, it’s important to maintain healthy habits during your trip. While a few indulgences won’t derail your health and fitness, we have a few tips to help keep you on the right track.

Take before and after measurements

body fat scaleTake your body composition measurements before and after your trip with our EatSmart Precision Body Fat Scale. It measures muscle, body water and body fat percentage. If you’ve gained weight during the trip, compare your before-and-after body water percentages to better understand the source of the weight gain. In addition, the Body Fat Scale will provide estimated daily calorie needs to help you stay on track while traveling for a lengthy period of time.

Bring fitness gear

packing cube 1000

Designate one of your EatSmart TravelWise Packing Cubes for workout clothes, swimsuits and sneakers while packing. Then, start each day with exercise, which will help keep you energized throughout the day. Going for a walk, run or a bike ride with the family is also an excellent way to take in the local sites.

Have an airport survival plan

Airport food is rarely delicious or healthy. Improve your options with some snacks from home or purchase familiar, healthy food in the terminal. Oatmeal, yogurt with fruit, green salads and grilled chicken are all healthy options.

Start with a healthy breakfast

precision pro scale
Choose a healthy breakfast to start your day off right. Even quick buffets generally have some healthy choices. You can enjoy hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, whole grain cereal, yogurt and even a slice or two of turkey bacon. Our EatSmart Precision Pro Kitchen Scale is lightweight and easy to bring along for when you want to measure your portions, especially if you are renting a home or condo.

Treat yourself

Vacation means some indulgences along the way. Decide what your special meal or treat will be for the day and let yourself go. Try the chowder in a bread bowl while in San Francisco or indulge in pasta and gelato during your trip to Italy. Enjoy your treat and be sure to make healthier choices the rest of the day.

Drink lots of water

A day of fun in the sun, running around, overeating, drinking daiquiris or making poor food choices can leave you dehydrated. Be sure to always carry a water bottle with you and drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. Also, it’s common to mistake feelings of thirst for feelings of hunger, leading to extra calorie consumption. A great rule to follow when drinking alcohol is to drink a glass of water immediately following every alcoholic beverage imbibed.

Pro travel tip: Worried about your suitcase exceeding the airline’s weight limit? Weigh your luggage before you head off to the airport with the EatSmart Voyager Luggage Scale to prevent excess baggage fees.

You can be easily derailed from your healthy habits on vacation. With a little planning ahead, you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest while still maintaining your health and fitness regime.

Charity of the Month – Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation

EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2016. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011.

sean kimerling testicular cancer foundation logo

We’ve selected the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation as our charity of the month for July. Our fan, Nina McHale, wrote to us,

My husband Paul was diagnosed with testicular cancer in the fall of 2015. It was not something the doctors expected since it’s not a common form of cancer nor does it usually occur to men in their 40’s. The good news is it’s highly treatable with a very high cure rate. It’s important for men to do a self exam and that is not something Paul or I were aware of previously. We knew that it was important for women to do monthly self exams but had not heard that men should also be doing them. The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation stresses the importance of these exams and it’s something that I urge men to start doing. This isn’t a disease that only young men experience and early detection is important for improving survival rates.  

The Foundation was established in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award-winning anchor of WB 11 sports and pre-game announcer for the Mets. Sean died from testicular cancer on September 9, 2003. He was only 37.

SKTCF Mission Statement:
Raising Awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.  Providing Answers, and promoting Action in the fight against testicular cancer.

SKTCF Vision Statement:
SKTCF is the premier organization focused on the importance of testicular cancer awareness, early diagnosis, and treatment. The foundation has successfully positioned itself as the primary resource and destination for TC awareness information, and as a vital resource in the fight against TC.

The foundation seeks an environment:

  • Where conversations about TC are open and without embarrassment or stigmatization;
  • Where health providers routinely perform testicular exams;
  • Where information is easily accessible to everyone;
  • Where diagnosis and treatment are addressed when the disease is in its earliest stages;
  • Where those impacted by TC are equipped for success;
  • Where opportunities to join the fight against TC are abundant;
  • Where no man needs to die from this disease.

For every new Twitter Follower we (EatSmartProducts) acquire during the month of July, we will donate 50 cents/follower to Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation. (So spread the word!)

25 Easy Ways to Increase Heart Health

25 easy ways to increase heart health

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular(heart) disease is the leading global cause of death, accounting for more than 17.3 million deaths per year, a number that is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030. Cardiovascular diseases claim more lives than all forms of cancer combined.

Want to know the real secret for the fountain of youth that will help decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease ? Keep your heart healthy! Half of Americans have at least one risk factor for heart disease such as high blood pressure, excess weight or high triglycerides. While you can’t change your genetic makeup, you can change your external risk factors. Even making a few easy changes can have a big impact on your health and quality of life. Your heart works hard every day, take good care of it in return!

Here are 25 easy ways to improve your heart health:

Your body needs some fat in order to function but too much saturated or trans fat leads to heart disease. Choose heart healthy monounsaturated fats, such as canola or olive oil, and polyunsaturated fats, such as those found in avocados, nuts and some fish.

Hit the weights

Cardio is important for heart health and so is strength training! It helps with weight control, insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance.

Go outside

women on a benchWhether you take a walk or sit outside to enjoy your lunch being outside in nature helps naturally reduce stress levels.

Have some fun with exercise

Stop looking at exercise as something you have to do and think of it as something you get to do. Eliminate the term “work out” and just go play. Activities such as playing Frisbee, bike riding and roller skating all burn calories and get the heart pumping. Want something more organized? Check out Sportsvite to find a league near you.

Get some rest

In addition to making your irritable, lack of sleep can alter your metabolism, leading to weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease.

Take a technology break

Email, texts and social media all increase stress levels. Skip reaching for your phone first thing in the morning and take time to stretch, do breathing exercises or read something positive.

Drink responsibly

Alcohol can have a positive impact on your heart but only when consumed in moderation. This means one glass per day for women and two for men.

Enjoy a little chocolate

Dark chocolate has heart healthy flavonoids, so enjoy a square of chocolate that’s at least 72% cacao.

How to Stay Fit Working From Home

how-to-stay-fit-working-from-homeGoodbye commute and hello home office! Sounds perfect, right? While you can work in your pajamas and avoid rush hour traffic, it will take extra effort to maintain your fitness from home. Without coworkers to visit, meetings to attend, coffee breaks and walks to lunch, you might hardly move all day. With recent research proving how a sedentary lifestyle is very bad for your health, you will need a work from home health and fitness routine that sets you up for success.

Here are 10 health tips to keep you fit while working from home:

Daily walks before and after work 

It’s easy to forget how much time you “have back” from not commuting so take advantage of it! In place of a commute, take a walk before you sit down to work. When you’re done for the day, head out the door and do a 15-minute walk to detox from sitting at the computer.

Create a weekly schedule

On Sunday evening, update your calendar for the week. Whether you have an actual planner or an online calendar, “pencil” in professional and personal obligations first. Just as you would schedule a meeting, add your exercise sessions to best fit the upcoming week.

Set a countdown timer

Use your phone or Google timer to establish a set period of time to focus on work. Always set the clock/timer to countdown the duration of time you plan to work. Inc. Magazine stated studies show the ideal amount of time for maximum productivity is 52 minutes followed by a 17 minute break. During the break, be sure to move and stretch.

Make a quick, healthy lunch

There’s no excuses here! With your full kitchen a few steps away, you can easily throw together a nutritious lunch in just a couple of minutes. For easy to make, healthy lunch ideas, click here.

Set work-life boundaries

Always track your hours and keep yourself accountable. Try not to let work bleed over into your personal time, or vice versa. Don’t feel guilty that you work from home and try to do more to compensate.

Make a “To Do” list the night before

Take 5-minutes before bed to write a task list for the next day. This will help you prioritize what needs to be accomplished and leave you with more time for exercising, cooking dinner and other healthy habits.

Keep nutritious snacks on hand

precision-pro-white-chromeSince you don’t have to pack a lunch and snacks, it’s easy to grab the pretzels and eat straight from the bag. Studies prove mindless eating leads to weight gain so try to only buy nutritious snacks and use your EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale to measure out proper portion sizes.

PRO TIP: Measure out correct portion sizes and make your own 100 calorie packs of snacks.

Get a pedometer

Most people with desk jobs aren’t moving too much throughout the day. Pedometers and fitness trackers are worn on the wrist, and they’re able to track steps taken, calories burned, sleep schedules and more. Some trackers even alert you if you’ve been stationary too long, reminding you to stand up and move.

Always walk and talk 

If you have conference calls or phone meetings, always try to take them standing up.

Get enough sleep

Lack of sleep kills both your productivity and your motivation to exercise. When your rejuvenated and well rested, you are able to perform your work in a focused, timely manner and have energy to exercise.

The Differences Between the Precision Elite and Precision Pro Digital Food Thermometers

ESP_differences_between_thermometers_pinterestThe most accurate way to know if your meat is cooked is to check the internal temperature with a food thermometer. A digital thermometer takes the guess work out of cooking meat and you get to enjoy a meal that has been cooked to perfection. No more biting into too rare beef roasts or dried out chicken!

Cooking foods to proper temperature also cuts down on food borne illnesses. You cannot judge the internal temperature by looking at, smelling or even tasting food. We offer two options for you to monitor accurate internal food temperatures, our Precision Elite Digital Thermocouple Thermometer  and our Precision Pro Digital Food Thermometer.

Digital food thermometers can be used to measure temperatures of items besides meat such as ravioli, bread and baked goods. New Mom? It’s perfect to use to test the temperate of warmed breastmilk or baby formula. You can also use a food thermometer to steep tea because certain teas actually taste better at different temperatures.

The similarities in our Digital Food Thermometers:

    • Easy to read, bright blue backlit screens
    • Innovative, splash proof designs
    • Readings in Celsius or Fahrenheit with a resolution of 1 degree Fahrenheit
    • 1.5 mm step-down probes (that leave a minimal puncture hole so all of the juices stay in the meat)
    • Auto calibration
    • FDA and NSF certified


Here are the differences in our Digital Food Thermometers:

Our Precision Elite Thermocouple uses a proprietary thermocouple sensor that registers temperatures in 3 seconds or less. The Precision Pro reads temperatures in 5 seconds, but when you’re hungry every second counts! There isn’t much that the Elite can’t be used for with its temperature range from -40F to 572F. The Pro is able to measure temperatures in the range of -40F – 450F.

The Elite comes in a bold, red color and measures 9.75” long x 1.25” wide.  The probe is a generous 4” long and folds down for easy and safe storage.  It also comes with a nylon carrying case. The Pro is an always appropriate basic black and measures 7.25” long x 1.25” wide with a 3” long probe. It does not fold down but comes with an antimicrobial cover to inhibit bacteria growth. The cover has a handy list of the internal temperatures for different doneness of meat. The cover also snaps onto the top of thermometer to extend your reach, perfect if you are reaching into the oven to check your roast.ElitevsPro-Thermometers

The Precision Elite runs on 2 AA batteries while the Precision Pro runs on one CR2032 battery. Batteries are included with both thermometers!

Finally, the pricing! The Precision Elite Thermocouple can be purchased for $19.95 and the Precision Pro Digital Thermometer can be purchased for $9.95 on Amazon.
