Oreo Cheesecake!

Oreos are one of my biggest downfalls, which let me tell you when you are trying to get healthy and lose weight. When I came across a recipe for Oreo Cheesecake you can imagine the temptation to make them, and eat them all of course. So I calculated the calories to see how bad they were for me and decided that 201 calories for a cheesecake the size of a cupcake just wasn't going to happen! I spent the next two days figuring out how to make these little fattening cups of goodness as healthy as I could :O) I am happy to say I got them down to 102 calories a piece!


OREO CHEESECAKE

2 Packages Fat Free Cream Cheese
1 Cup Non-Fat Plain Yogurt
3 Large Eggs
3/4 Cups Sugar
20 Oreos
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Now this was my first try at any kind of cheesecake and here I was changing the entire recipe.lol However this turned out great and were super easy to make.......almost to easy! Simply start buy mixing together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. After those are well combined add you the eggs and mix well. Then the yogurt making sure everything is combined. Next you will take the Oreos and break them apart as you put them in. Mix them in well and then spoon the mixture into cupcake tins that are lined with wrappers.
In a pre-heated 275 degree oven bake for 22 minute switching pans about half way through. 
Now the directions from the recipe I was changing said to remove the pans and cool on wire racks but when I did this mine didn't turn out quite firm enough. So after seeking advice from friends I made another batch and simply turned off the oven and opened the door a bit to let heat escape. Now I can enjoy these because I know I am not going to kill my day having one :O)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
