We love Jimmy Kimmel’s challenge- “I told my kids I ate all their Halloween Candy.” It’s comedy gold. Even though we wouldn’t really eat all of our kids’ Halloween candy in one night, it is really easy to slowly pick away at it and eat way too much over the next few weeks. No wonder most people gain weight during the holidays, and that doesn’t even mention Thanksgiving dinner and all the Christmas goodies!
This year, treat yourself to something a little healthier that still satisfies your sweet tooth! Here are ten recipes you are going to love.
1. Skinny Dark Chocolate PB Cups
