Holiday baking 2008

I know I am going to bake during this holiday season- and I know I am going to over-do it just a bit! Here is an attempt to make healthier treats, and lessen the damage. Will it be perfect? NO. Will it be better than completely losing it? ABSOLUTELY.

A little splenda and applesauce lowers the calorie content a bit. Gourmet chocolate makes them seem so decadent! Also delicious with white chocolate chips.
