How can I make this Heavenly Recipe Healthier? Rich, Indulgent Ingredients but oh SO yummy

Ok, I'm a glutton for punishment as they say.  I was looking around Pillsbury.com for a fun and "healthier" desert idea, when I stumbled upon this photo and recipe - and I have such a weakness for chocolatey, fudgey, yummy goodies.  So NOT on my diet plan!  So, I'm asking all my friends out there in the Cyber World to help me find a way to still enjoy this scruptious desert but make it healthier, and still retain the yummy taste!  Any Ideas are Oh So Welcome!
