This blog post was created in partnership with Stonyfield Organic. All opinions are my own and I received product to aid in my review.
The Oscars, my favorite award show was on Sunday night, so when Stonyfield Organic asked me if I would be willing to host a little viewing party I jumped at the chance. The Oscars have always been a fun tradition in my household. When we lived in Germany, my mom would wake my sister and me up in the middle of the night so we could watch it live. We’d always sleep through the awards in the middle and then she’d nudge us awake to see the Best Actor, Actress, and Picture awards.
For our party Stonyfield sent me a crate of Petite Crème and fun Oscar Bingo cards. I immediately knew that whatever I ended up making with the Petite Crème it had to have chocolate in it! It’s so easy to substitute Greek yogurt into a recipe, look for the oil ingredient or any kind of moisture inducing ingredient and that’s where you’ll use Greek yogurt instead. I played around with a few recipes and then settled on a slimmer chocolate cake recipe that I’m calling The Theory of Raspberry Chocolate Cake. Ha! Get it…like Best Picture nominee The Theory of Everything? I adapted this recipe from the recipe I found on Chez Cateylou.

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and wet ingredients in the other bowl.
We had a blast and the big winner of the night was definitely Petite Crème! My friend, Christine, said, “I may just have to go and buy this as a treat for myself!”
