We love our candy! I mean, really, who doesn’t! Father’s day is coming up really quickly and I feel like it always gets left behind all the other summer festivities. We try to make an effort for my husband, but it’s a lot harder for my father and father-in-law. Not surprisingly,TWIX is one of my father-in-law’s favorite candies, but, he’s Type 1 diabetic! This means he loves the mini size bars because it’s just enough sugar but not too much. I am always on the hunt for fun desserts that are diabetic-friendly because I usually like things suuper sweet. {brownies and ice cream and hot fudge instead of cheesecake…!} 

Luckily, his favorite candy comes in an even small size than the mini: the new Bite size without a wrapper! I put together two different diabetic desserts using his favorite candy. Hopefully no one else notices that they are low sugar! Right now, the MARS Bites are super easy to find at Walmart because they are placed in lots of places throughout the store; by the checkout lines, the candy isle and the frozen section! Also, a coupon for $1.00 off  when you buy two 2.83 oz. or larger bags OR $3.00 off when you buy two 6 oz. or larger bags! {click to download}

I picked up some SNICKERS Bites too, well because those are my favorite. Also, I can’t help but lust over them while I’m doing no sugar! I’m saving up for when my 30 day challenge is up! {see what I’m talking about here}

The first recipe is for a parfait/milkshake. It really could be either because I used Greek yogurt that is also low on sugar mixed with some fat-free milk. Sprinkled some crushed TWIX Bites onto some whipped cream and that’s it! Did you even know you could get sugar-free whipped cream? Yes. Yes you can.

The next fun dessert is a trifle. Wait for it, the only sugar is in the TWIX Bites! I know, right! And, better yet, my husband couldn’t even tell! {Yeah, I had him sample both desserts to make sure they were “father’s day” worthy. I would’ve in a heartbeat if I were eating dairy. I just let myself smell them. yum.}

For this trifle, the secret is sugar-free vanilla pudding. yep. Then layer the parfait with some more Greek yogurt {if you like} and a little bit of sugar-free whipped cream and you have a very satisfying and tasty dessert with way less sugar than a normal trifle.

This way, my father-in-law can eat more than his usual 2-bites of dessert on his special day!

I’m secretly counting down the days until I can share in this deliciousness as well! I’ll also be sharing some other non-dessert traditions/gift ideas for Father’s Day next week.
