Celebrating...guilt-free galore

Not exactly the title you'd expect while reading an e-newsletter from HERSHEY'S Kitchens, but today as I was checking emails, there it was. Now I am usually not one to skimp on the sugar and butter...you know, all the "good" (but not-so-good for you) stuff, but the picture (shown below) looked just to good to not check it out.

I took a peek and the ingredients don't look bad. So I thought that since I'm usually sharing something that's not healthy, that I should share this recipe which is a little more healthy.

Hope you enjoy!
