Hide the sweets!!

(A sampling of the treats I made for friends and family: chocolate-dipped marshmallows; cherry-vanilla and pistachio-almond macarons; the BEST frosted sugar cookies; and dipped pretzels molded into trees, santas, and reindeer).
Luckily, the last morsel of Christmas goodies is gone until December. I am retrying last years goal of losing weight...along with 50 million other Americans. I hope I can do it. I have been using my eliptical again and have joined a Yahoo support group of other friends with the same goal in mind.
So, I went and bought a hot air popcorn popper today to make a healthy snack. What could be better?
I turned it into homemade carmel corn.
This is going to be harder than I thought.

Looks so yummy! Good luck with the diet! I don't even like to mutter the words "try to loose weight" because I know I'll disappoint myself.

You must do it, Jenny! They are super easy (especially if you have a Kitchenaid mixer) and melt so easily. Yummmmm

Emily's family does the melting-chocolate-to-make-candy thing every Christmas, so I ate way too many white-chocolate pretzels, because you can't go wrong mixing salty with sweet.
