Sweet Treat

I am a total sucker for anything with doing weight watchers I just knew I was going to have to find some healthy choices or their isn't going to be much weight lose happening!

So in my search...I found these:

Cheesecake Squares! These are delicious!! They don't last for too many days so I would suggest that if you make them be sure you have some friends to share them with!!

Cheesecake Squares (5pts per serving)

  • 1(8oz) package cream cheese, softened (I used fat-free)
  • 3/4 cup M&M candies
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup margarine
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (possible to substitute Splenda brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the margarine and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the walnuts and flour; mix well. Reserve 1/2 cup of the crumb mixture; press the remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of a 8x8 square pan. Then bake the crust for 10 mins. While baking combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla; using an electric mixer, mix at medium speed until well blended. Add the egg; mix well. Layer 1/2 cup of the M&M candies over the baked crust; top with the cream cheese mixture. Combine the remaining candy and reserved crumb mixture; mix well. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the cream cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 mins. Let cool completely...I put mine in the fridge.

**With the fat free cream cheese and since I dropped the walnuts it drops the points down to 4pts per serving!!**
