Unbelievable Low(ish)-Cal Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars
By Dana Wigdor danawig7
These are soooo amazing, decadent and addictive that you won't believe that they are not 500 calroies each! Just make sure you stick to one or two..but I bet you won't be able to!
I made these for my (now-ex) boyfriend and he was in HEAVEN with them. ACtually asked me recently, in these words..."I know I don't deserve it, but maybe you could make me those pecan bars you made that time, maybe for my birthday next month???" HAHAHA!!!
I got this recipe from A Taste of Home's Comfort Food Diet magazine, but I tweaked it a bit to make it even more low-cal when I made it. I'll mention both.
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"
