“This wonderful recipe is healthy and decked out for the holidays! They are moist, fudgy, and beautiful, not to mention low-fat, reduced-sugar, and enriched with fibre! I used a recipe from Canadien Living and Becel Margarine the make these beauties. Perfect addition to the cookie plates, especially if you crush one green candy cane and one red one for the topping. Note: one largish candy cane makes one tablespoon crushed. To crush, put candy canes in a plastic bag and lightly crush with a hammer. By the way, this recipe doubles up beautifully into an 8x8, and you can double it again into a 9x13. Enjoy!”
