Weight Watchers has some great recipes that allow you to have your sweet fix even if you are trying to lose weight:

Gingersnap Cookies vs. WW Crackle Spice Drops: Cookies are a mainstay for every holiday season, but few are low in calories. A homemade gingersnap cookie can have close to 100 calories per cookie, or 3 to 4 PointsPlus depending on the recipe.  Our lighter version has around 50 or 2 PointsPlus for 1 cookie.  That’s half the calories for a warm, spice-filled cookie!

Chocolate Fudge vs. WW Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge:
Fudge is another decadent treat at the Holidays, but it can be over 200 calories or up to 6 PointsPlus for a small square.  Our version uses fat-free evaporated milk and light butter to help cut the calories into just 100 or 3 PointsPlus for a small piece.

Hot Chocolate vs. WW Mexican Hot Chocolate: Hot chocolate is a great way to warm up during the Holiday season, but the calories can add up to a whopping 360 or 10 PointsPlus for some!  That’s a lot for a drink!  Our WW version is full of flavor, with Mexican chocolate and cinnamon, that you don’t need as much to be satisfied.  Ours comes in at around 145 calories or 5 PointsPlus for 2/3 of a cup.
