I copied and saved this Peeps. It looks so good. I think I'll make it for Easter for my mother. She's diabetic and would really love this dessert! Thanks for posting it! :)

You're welcome Mary. Keep in mind that Splenda brown is HALF real brown sugar.

Oh thanks Peeps! I didn't know that. I think she can still enjoy this though, as long as she watches her portion size.
