    This is true too, not to mention all the delicious chemical additives. YUM.

      Well, darn. Now I'm thinking about the last time I made French buttercream, and how good it would taste if mixed with melted and cooled 90% chocolate.

        It actually makes me glad that people think recipes like this pass for fudge. It means that when I make my grandmother's fudge recipe (which is not paleo, although i halve the added sugar and chose the darkest chocolate I can find) people are even more amazed and overwhelmed with how awesome it is.

          Umm.... this is low in sugar with 10 butterfingers, cake. cool whip? Is it also low in fat?



          Butterfinger Dessert -Weight Watchers =easy and low in sugar

          1 (10") prepared angel food cake, cut into 1' cubes
          1 ( 1 oz.) package of sugar free, fat free butterscotch pudding mix

          2 ( 8 oz. ) containers of cool whip FREE, thawed
          10 fun-sized butterfingers candy bars, crushed ( I used mini food processor)


          1. Spray 9 x 13" pan with cooking spray. Arrange half the angel food cake cubes in bottom of pan.


          2. In large bowl, combine the pudding mix with skim milk. Whisk until starting to thicken. Fold in both containers of cool whip FREE.


          3. Pour half the "fluff" mixture over the cubed angel food cake in pan. Top with half the crushed butterfinger candies. Repeat with rest of cake, fluff and candy. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving, or overnight. Enjoy!

            I meant to share this conversation I had the other day with a woman aged around 30 that was sitting next to me on a park bench. We were both having our lunch out of tupperware boxes. Mine consisted of a half roast chicken, an avocado and a tub of whipped cream with nuts, bottle of water. Hers was white bread sandwiches, a packet of crisps (potato chips in US English), a low fat yoghurt, a cupcake and a can of 7-Up

            Anyway, I was ripping the flesh off the chicken and dunking it into a little pot of homemade mayo and it was delicious! This young woman looked at me and virtually gasped at the sight of me with mayo all round my face and chomping on an avocado like it was an apple! haha

            So she pipes up and says:

            "Excuse me, but how can you eat so much fat? Aren't you worried?"

            Now, I didn't mention the box full of CW crap she was eating (typical podgy English girl, clearly been living on CW crap all her life) and so I just said:

            "Well, it tastes good and does me good! I feel great eating this stuff"

            and carried on eating until she says:

            "But, don't you worry about what that will do to you when you get older?"

            To which I replied:

            "How old do you think I am then?"

            She takes a closer look (I had wiped the mayo off my chops by this time) and says:

            "Dunno. Thirty? Thirty-two?"

            Which was quite pleasing because I had the pleasure of saying:

            "I just turned 49 sweetheart"

            And she exclaimed:

            "No way!!"

            Had to show her my driving licence to prove it. And I gave her the link to this forum.

                Excellent story, although I can kind of sympathize with the mayo thing. Not because "OMG fat!!!!!111!" but because I have an extreme aversion to mayonnaise. I don't know why, but imagining it smeared on someone's mouth makes my skin crawl.
                It's an irrational fear though, and even if I saw it happening I wouldn't say anything to the person. They aren't responsible for my phobia...I'd just look away.

                  A hypnotist can help you get over an irrational fear or phobia of mayonnaise.

                    For me it's not a fear. I just hate the taste and texture. Yes, even the homemade stuff. Yes, even baconnaise. It's just foul tasting to me. I probably wouldn't think twice about seeing on the side of someone's face, though (although I would probably make the universal "You have something on your face" gesture.) To each their own.
                    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    • I used to hate mayonnaise when I was a kid. After I started making it myself I started liking it.

                      • From a local free paper:

                        Cherry Coke Salad(?)

                        16oz Bing cherries
                        1 large can crushed pineapple
                        6oz cherry Jello
                        12 oz Coca Cola

                        Drain juice and add water to make. 2 cups. Dissolve gelatin. Add Coke and fruit. Chill until set. Serve with a dollop of Cool Whip.

                        YUM! YUM!

                        • You could totally make that Cherry coke salad even worse or better according to your take on things.

                          You could use sugar free fruits, jello and diet coke and fat free cool whip.

                          I wonder though, what exactly would you be eating then? Would that be "food"?

                          • Can't imagine how the cherry coke salad sets with pineapple in it. Enzymes in the pineapple work on the gelatin and it won't set.

                              Maybe but I can't justify spending the money on that. It's mayonnaise. It's easy enough to avoid.
                              I don't like the taste either so I don't keep it in my house because it'd just go bad because I only ever use it in the odd dish where it's a minor ingredient, but I've prepared food for other people with it. At a picnic when I'm with people who like mayonnaise on sandwiches, etc.

                              Okay, hypothetically, if I were starving to death and had to eat mayonnaise by the spoonful to live...well then I'd start thinking that it's time I conquered my fear, but until then I'm not going to worry about 'fixing' it

                                Jello salad 101.

                                Canned pineapple that's been carefully rinsed and dried will set when added to gelatin.
