Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Last year i spent thirty dollars to get sugar free chocolate covered cherries for my dad for a christmas present. So this year I decided to try making these. I changed them though to make them with less sugar. I took 2 cup of Splenda and put it in the blender with 4 tb plus a little more of cornstarch and blended until fine and used in place of the powdered sugar. My dad also likes brandy, so I soaked the cherries in brandy overnight. I also found it useful to freeze the cherries after coating with the filling before dipping in chocolate. I dipped in milk chocolate. Not totally sugar-free, but less sugar.

Oaty Cereal Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I made these yesterday for the first time. We all loved them. My kids, husband and I. Very easy to make. I did boil the sugar honey mixture for 1 min and used whole grain cheerios. They were great. They don't last long either. My kids had one for a snack when they came home from school and then another one after softball practice. To where my son said he was getting one of those awesome bars. Made another batch already today. I know they won't last long either. Big hit.
