It’s Day 4 of the No Diet Dr. Pepper journey and it seems to be getting easier. Yesterday was a little rough, though, because the ice maker at work was broken. Not having Diet DP or ice water was almost more than I could handle. Haha!
We had fewer than 15 trick-or-treaters at our house on Halloween night, so we definitely have some extra candy. I think the kiddos were all at the mall because it was a zoo when I stopped by there on my way home. I call this a “Ridiculous” Recipe Roundup because some of these recipes are so over-the-top that it’s hard to even look at them without sending my blood sugar into orbit. You’ll see, just keep reading.
For the healthiest option in this list, which really isn’t healthy at all, you could try the Candy Bar Apple Salad from Taste of Home. You could at least make this one slightly lower in calories and fat by using low-fat milk, sugar-free pudding, and fat-free whipped topping.
The longest recipe name award goes to the Picky Palate’s Peanut Butter Cookie and Cream Cheese “Candy” Bars. Anything that combines peanut butter and cream cheese has to be good, right?
And because my favorite desserts are cakes, here’s a Leftover Halloween Candy Vanilla Bundt Cake from Noble Pig. Like many of the recipes, above, you can use virtually any variety of candy you have laying around.
And that’s it for our sugar overload. :) Have a fun weekend and don’t forget to set your clocks back tomorrow night!
