    What do you do for when you crave something sweet? If you have any suggestions, please post the recipe/idea (p.s. any thing with [raw]honey is a plus!!).

    Sometimes I mix Kefir with honey. It works for me or I just grab a handful of dark chocolate.

    OMG, I LOVE dark chocolate!!! Mexican chocolate is great... it has a slight spiciness to it that you may not think that goes with it, but you will be surprised!

    I have had these random sweet cravings and I just wanted to know what else everyone else eats/prepares to satisfy that.

    Thank you so much for your input!!!

    I might be excommunicated from RJ by posting this, but I'm going to share my banana pudding recipe with everyone.

    Yes, it's fattening, but I get rave reviews when I take this to pot lucks--and I always come home with an empty dish.

    Make 1 package of Jello French Vanilla Instant Pudding according to package directions and set aside (I sometimes substitute 2 cups of half and half for the milk to make the pudding).

    In a second bowl cream together 1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk along with 1 package of cream cheese. Add vanilla pudding to this mixture and blend. Once blended, fold in one tub of Cool whip. Completely incorporate into pudding/cream cheese mixture.

    In a serving dish, line the bottom with Pepperidge Farm Chessman Cookies (if cookies are broken in the package-sometimes happens-use the broken ones for the bottom layer), Slice and layer 2-3 bananas depending on the size of your serving dish. Pour cream cheese/condensed milk/cool whip mixture on top, leveling off with a spoon.

    Top with Chessman cookies (unbroken ones). Two bags of cookies do the trick for the size serving dish I use.

    Into the fridge for at least 6-12 hours for flavors to come together. This is best made the day before serving. Enjoy!

    Guys, this is the Paula Deen, "Not Yo Mamma's Banana Pudding" recipe as you can find this on the Food Network website. Yeah, it's sweet and rich....but again....in moderation....and if you take this to a pot luck or to a party where you're requested to bring a dessert.....you'll be loved forever.

    I LOVE to cook and this is one of my best here.

    Figs Stuffed with Ricotta

    19 fresh ripe small figs
    1/4 cup honey, divided
    1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
    1/4 cup almonds, toasted and chopped
    Sliced almonds for garnish, if desired


    Cut a deep X in the top of each fig and spread it apart to make 4 petals.

    Combine ricotta, 1/8 cup honey and chopped almonds and spoon this mixture into the figs.

    Arrange figs on a platter and drizzle with the remaining honey.

    Sprinkle with sliced almonds for garnish if desired.

    Cashew Caramel Cookies. I have no clue how they are made but you can buy them at Trader Joes. Three cookies for only 110 calories.

    I know this is terrible, but I usually save my sweet tooth for the movies. I'll get a diet coke, sour patch kids and popcorn. The mixture of all three at the same time is strangely satisfying. I guess its the combo of textures sweet, sour and bubbles. icon_smile.gif

    I agree. I sometimes get a spoon and eat this out of the jar. Also, there is a lot you can make with this as well.

    So yummy!

    Dutch pancakes ... heres recipe:

    Blend milk eggs and flour to get the proper texture (should be the thickness of a milkshake, and only slightly yellow, just a hint of yellow to the colour)

    Put in cinnamon and vanilla to taste

    Add raisins and bits of apple to the mix if desired

    Bake individual pancakes in a large pan (has to be large, they cant be small)

    Usually eaten with honey, jam, or try anything you like icon_smile.gif

    Wow, thank you everyone for the great ideas! My sweet tooth, at times, is hardcore!

    With my, trying to get in shape and eat healthy, it is hard sometimes to "skip" the sweets with empty calories -- some of these ideas, especially the heaping spoonful(s) of Nutella are great ideas -- but we all know how cravings can get the best of us!

    If there are any more suggestions, please let me know.

    I made this! Everyone loved it! Thank you. I also put crushed pineapple in it.
    I couldn't find Chessman cookies so I just used these great tasting cookies from Walmart.
    I ate about half of it by myself
