It's gorgeous here. Mid 60's, just right for yard work.

I'm really good at figuring out how to cook a meal with what's on hand.  Sometimes my husband is sure he's going to have to drive through for dinner and, voila, a full meal.  It's an art.

It's cooled down around here again to the 60s.
I think I'll make these later today or tomorrow. :)
Did you try these yet, Tony? I'm eager for some feedback...

Good, Umpa! Let me know how they turn out! I was thinking macadamia nuts, but I think they're too high carb. 1/3 cup of xylitol was WAY too sweet, so maybe 16 drops of ZERO will be too sweet for you, too... taste as you go? ZERO has a different sweetness than xylitol so it's hard for me to compare. I love the sweetness of ZERO and tend to use more of it than I would of the xylitol.

Macadamias arent high Sarah ;) My nuts were bad,they got stale.I went to the grocery store and went to but a bag of pecans and for a 10 ounce bag it was $13! I can buy alot of pecans in georgia for that!So instead I made strawberry and ricotta tarts,coconut cream pie(Doug got his way  :D ) ,and a pork sirloin roast in the dutch oven with White wine and turnips.(recipe is in new cookbook)I also made a Schezuan steak and mushroom dish for lunch. Doug has spent the last 4 days doing taste tests at the Walgreen stores so i think I am getting bored!! :D :D

I hate it when food goes bad before I can use it! I've been keeping all the nuts in the freezer so they'll keep better. I have some Brazil nuts that would be interesting in this candy, too.

I made a batch using the 16 drops of zero and they're WONDERFUL! I also cut down on the boiling time - just let it boil until the cocoa was all mixed in. I have to really work not to eat all of them at once! Good thing they're very low carb!

Boy, I'm glad you guys tried them and like them!
I have to hide them from myself or I'll eat one every time I pass by.
.3 grams per yum.

MommaB, that reminds me of when we fixed macaphoney and cheese for dinner with the nephew's family. Before the wife could get any, the kids had cleaned the dish slick!

Good idea, Sarah!... Out of sight and out of mind. ;)

There are a few treats I must also hide in a drawer I seldom use. :) :D :)
