So, what are you waiting for?

Caramel Swirl Cream Puffs
Makes 12

1 package refrigerated Pillsbury Crescent
2 1/2 cups Cool Whip Free, thawed
3 tbsp. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant Pudding mix
1 sugar free chocolate pudding snack (60 calories or less)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. fat free or light caramel dip

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

Roll dough out into a 12"x9" rectangle. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into 12 squares. Place each square of dough into a muffin cup, and press it into the bottom and up along the sides to form a little dough cup.

Bake in the oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Remove and let cool.

Put whipped topping in a large bowl and add instant pudding mix. Stir until blended, thickened and uniform.

Add chocolate pudding in dollops, and then gently swirl into the whipped topping mixture - do not mix until uniform.

Remove dough cups from the muffin pan and evenly distribute pudding mixture among them.

Drizzle each with 1/2 tbsp. caramel dip and the use the end of a spoon or fork to swirl it into the pudding mixture. Serve with berries, if you'd like.
