With the holidays fast approaching, there are so many parties that are coming up and I always like to bring a sweet treat with us to share. I love bringing goodies that are already portioned and ready to eat. Enjoying the sweets and treats this holiday season just got a little better for you with the SPLENDA® Sugar Blend I found at Walmart this past weekend.
For our upcoming Ugly Christmas Sweater party we are going to, I’ve created a Sweet Swaps™ Recipe for Chocolate Pudding using SPLENDA® Sugar Blend. Did you know that by swapping one cup of sugar with one cup of SPLENDA® No Calorie Granulated Sweetener, you can save more than 600 calories? Seriously though, with all the extra treats we eat during the holidays, this is an easy substitution that should help not pack on those extra pounds.
This Sweet Swaps™ Recipe for Chocolate Pudding not only is delicious, but also looks super cute in their individual mason jars that no one will be able to resist eating. On a side note, I am a sucker for anything in a mason jar!

I decided to cut out a bit of holiday wrapping paper to make the mason jars more festive. Simply trace the mason jar lid onto the wrapping paper and cut to fit. Then I used a bit of twine to attach the spoon. Love it!
Not only does this Chocolate Pudding Sweet Swaps™ Recipe taste good but it looks good too and you are saving calories. I am so glad that I found SPLENDA® Sugar Blend at Walmart so I can make smarter, balanced decisions for a healthy lifestyle. Be sure to look for SPLENDA® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener, SPLENDA® Sugar Blend (this product contains sugar), and SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend (this product contains sugar) for all of your holiday baking needs at Walmart. Sometimes making a small, easy swap can jumpstart a healthy routine. Happy baking!
