I just LOVE desserts!

Have I ever mentioned how much I love desserts? Have I?

Well, I do. And it would seem that I'm not the only one. In fact, chocolate is my favorite, but ... Ohhhh ... it's such a sore spot, but I have found heaven -- H-E-A-V-E-N, do you hear me?!?

For those of us that have GD, and are craving chocolate... I have found two things that have turned out to be pretty good, are allowable, and somewhat take care of the immediate craving problem...

1) LOW CARB (sugarless) York Peppermint Patties, and MAN ... are they good! Of course, they have carbs, but a whole lot less, and they are so nice to have one (ehh, maybe two) for a snack and experience the whole satisfying chocolate high! (sugarless lifesavers are great, too) There are, of course, other sugarless chocolates, but I haven't gotten around to them yet. I'm pretty satisfied with the Pep patties for now!

2) Sugarfree pudding-moussie thing... Okay... I was sitting around CRAVING chocolate and I just happened to look in my pantry for something that might take the craving away. I happened to stumble across a large box of sugarfree instant chocolate pudding. Now, if you've ever tasted sugarfree instant chocolate pudding, it can be pretty yucky. But... I also had a container of cool whip in the refrigerator. Now... according to the packaging, Cool Whip REGULAR only has 2 grams of carbs for 2 tablespoons (believe it or not, the light and free cool whip have more!). TWO! So, I made the pudding according to package directions, let it set up, added a bunch of cool whip to make it like a mousse (sort of), let it set up again, and man, was it good!

To top things off (yes, life is starting to look better in the GD area), Cool Whip website has a TON of sugarless or low carb desserts that look yummy! And, they have a link for Healthy Living that has another link with recipes just for diabetics, as well as low cal deserts!

So basically, I'm loving Kraft right now! I'm off to make Creamy Layered Squares (with sugarless watermelon jello... if I can find it!) Here's the website for your dessert gratification: (also, don't forget to check the Healthy Living button for tons of other recipes, and a link just for diabetics!)
