Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries

Chocolate covered ones that is.

I had my share of chocolate covered cherries over the holidays.

Now it's time to get back to healthy eating and reaching my second weight loss goal.

But--I need not give up the flavor combination.

I've found a low calorie low carb substitute that tastes surprisingly like:   *chocolate covered cherries *  :-)

One bowl
One single serve of sugar free CHERRY gelatin
4 tablespoons of fat free Cool Whip
Unsweetened cocoa powder
One spoon

Into the bowl goes the gelatin; break it up with the spoon.  Cover with a layer of FF CW.  Sprinkle with the cocoa powder.  Eat with your spoon.  Yum Yum.


Edit:  Skip the cocoa powder and drizzle with chocolate Magic Shell ice cream topping.  Top with 3 maraschino cherries.  Stick in the freezer a minute or two to harden the shell.  Wow.  Good.  But more calories...and fat.
