Easter candy is best left for the kiddies and even then, it should be limited. I find stuffing the basket with stuffed toys, coloring books and other creative gifts keeps the candy out of the house better. The other thing that helped me out was to fill up the basket, wrap it up in plastic and then get rid of any extras. I am not to be trusted with chocolate bunnies. LOL

I use to do an easter egg hunt w/ my nieces, treasure hunt style w/ a clue in each egg to find the next one. I used plastic eggs & stuffed them w/ different things, some candy, the ultimate egg to find was the last one with the five dollar bill in it.

One thing I allow myself is Easter smores. I buy 1 box of chocolate covered marshmallow easter eggs. Then each day the week after Easter I make 2 smores using a ccmmee on each one. Yummmm!!!

I have intentionally been avoiding the candy aisles when I go to stores for that reason. I mean it's okay to have a piece of candy now and then so long as you watch the carbs and realize that the calories add up with zero nutrition. Be cautious of the "sugar-free" candies because the carbs are often higher than the regular sugared varieties and also no nutritional value. I am going to have Strawberry Cheesecake after my Easter dinner but I get it from a container that reads Dannon Light & Fit (yogurt). The key to control is in moderation. What I will miss most are the black licorice jelly beans… the whole bag of them!!! :)

evertried setting the yoghurt with gelatine…makes it look like cheese cake and makes it feel so much more like the real thing…HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE.

My father is biabetic as well and listens to thee talk shows on the radio and heard that the old saying about an apple a day keeps the doctor away has more truth in it than we think…so he know eats an apple a day… thats his sweet…I still miss cheesecake though…cant get sugar free cheese cake here in Oz…I have to make it the best I can.

me too…Easter and christmas are the hardest parts of the year for me…chocolate every where I look…I start wishing i was blind or had blinkers on around now.HA HA HA.

You don't REALLY want to wish you were blind Donna.

My beloved Jem was totally blind (since age 14 due to retinitis pigmentosa) and her life was difficult in many ways.

I'd choose the "blinkers"

your right I don't really wish I was blind…sorry…but something that blanks them out would help a whole hell of a lot.
