Tasty Temptations . . .

I have found many great recipes on Pinterest.  
I decided to make a couple of the finger foods
 for a jewelry party Kari hosted at our house Saturday night.

Sweet and Salty Treat

You can find the recipe here.

I used plain Hershey Kisses.
This is the ultimate temptation for me, a diabetic, 
to unwrap these little sweet nuggets without 
devouring every other one.

Confession #1 . . . I did eat one!  

Almost ready to go in the oven.

The treats were a hit!
Confession #2 . . . I ate one!
I sent the leftovers home with Kari.

Caramel Cheesecake Apple Dip

You can find the recipe here  
Instead of soaking the apples slices in lemon juice
I soaked them in diet Sprite for about 15 minutes,
Another tip I found on Pinterest.

Half was consumed by the quests, they loved it!
Confession #3 . . . I dipped a couple of slices in the creamy goodness!
Yep, you guessed it . . .
I sent the leftovers home with Kari.

Couldn't end this post without showing this picture of Ethan.

He absolutely loves football!
When I found this football hat at Target I knew I had
to buy it for him.  
He watched the OSU/Texas A&M game upstairs with 
the guys while the jewelry party was in progress.

I love Pinterest but haven't seen either one of those recipes. The candy corn/pretzel treat is darling and the tip about Sprite is great to know. Thanks for sharing!

Those treats look amazing---something new and creative. Makes me want to give a party. Ethan is getting off to a good start----nothing like college football. Love the hat!

The food looks delicious - my husband is diabetic also and so I try not to tempt him but I LOVE Hershey's kisses!
Ethan is such a cutie - the hat is very unique and he has to love it!

Ethan is so cute, Carol... and the candy corn treats looks so delicious, and I have to say thumbs up for only eating one. I would love to have that kind of discipline. I have such a weakness for sweets, and I also have to watch my intake. I am borderline.

I've made the pretzel Turtles before but this with candy corn is so cute for this time of year.

Oh my these look tasty. Anything with candy corn and I'm hooked. I wonder if there's a candy cane kiss version? (wheels turning). Stopping by from Chic on a Shoestring and pinning this guy on my recipe board.

The treats look yummy! I've made the pretzel snacks using M&Ms on top -- very good! I'm definitely trying the candy corn. Your little guy is adorable. I'm your newest follower & also following on Pinterest.
