Guilt Free Mousse!

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I have the worst sweet tooth in the world which makes losing weight a bit of a challenge. So it’s always nice when you discover simple tricks that make you feel like you’re getting all the sweets you want but without all the guilt. In case any of you are plagued with the need for sweets like myself, then I have the perfect little treat!

Just fold 2 tablespoons of  fat free cool whip into a 60 calorie pudding snack and you’ve got 75 calories of filling and deliciously indulgent mousse! It totally hits the spot and no remorse included! Yummers, hope you enjoy!

Here is a recipe I got from my (wonderful) neighbor for quick and easy turtles. I was a bit skeptical when I first saw them but after eating one I was hooked! Seriously, don’t knock em till you try em! These are perfect for an impromptu gathering or a nice treat when you’ve got a craving.

Ingredients:
Mini Pretzels
Pecan Halfs
Rolos
That’s it!

1) On a cookies sheet, arrange the pretzels then place a Rolo on top of each one. Bake at 220 F. for 2 minutes.

2) Remove from the oven and immediately start placing the Pecans on top and pushing them down, squishing the Rolos.

3) Enjoy!
