The problem with most candy bars and cookies is that they're too small to be full-fledged desserts -- but not if they become part of the dessert.

Ice-cream and frozen-yogurt parlors got the idea a few years ago: Mix crumbled candy bars or crushed cookies into a light, flavorful base, and you've got a whole new creation.

All good ideas are worth tweaking, and this now-widespread favorite of the frozen also works wonderfully for countless other sweets.

Candy corn in a popcorn ball, Butterfinger pie, and Junior Mint pieces in warm brownies. Lo, a pattern emerges.

That these treats are low in fat is only part of the fun. Our Candy Corn Popcorn Balls are sure hit with kids, who will delight in shaping the gooey marshmallows and popcorn into their own masterpieces.
