By the way, this time of the year is killing me. Everywhere I look I see chocolate peanut butter balls. My favorite! Anyway, I have to attend a Christmas party tomorrow night and take something. I have no idea what to take. I want it to be something I can eat but something everyone else will enjoy. Maybe ham roll ups? A ham and cream cheese ball? Some cookies? Any ideas (and the recipes) will be greatly appreciated. I don't cook (except for buffalo chicken dip but someone is already bringing that.)

Thanks!

IF sugar alcohols don't affect you, Atkins makes chocolate/peanut butter cups. (I have to bolus for 'em, but I do indulge.)

Also, can't vouch for any of 'em, but here are some recipes for homemade:

Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups - Recipe for Low Carb Peanut Butter Cups

Healthy Indulgences: Healthy Peanut Butter Cups - Homemade Treats that are Low Carb, Primal, and Nearly Sugar-Free!

The Low Carb Cafe : Chocolate peanut-butter cups

Hope this helps. It's my first (known) diabetic Christmas as well, and all the temptations get to me sometimes!

The ham & cream cheese ideas are good ones . . . either roll-ups or cheese balls or both. I eat cream cheese every day and often several times a day. Rolled up in a thin slice of ham or roast beef is great.

if you don't cook, why not just pick up a ready made trays of something. Maybe cold cuts with cheese & olives etc.

Waitaminute, waitaminute, waitaminute! Did you say something about Buffalo chicken dip WITHOUT providing a recipe? I may have to call Santa and get him to add a certain Stinky to his Naughty list!

I think the easiest thing to bring to a party is some kind of artichoke dip. You can either make it or by some. On Sunday I bought a dip at Costco and then put crackers and raw broccoli around it. A cheese platter also work.

No not the naughty list!!!! Here is the recipe I use:
It calls for a 10 oz can of chicken but I use whatever chicken I have available
2 blocks of cream cheese
1 cup of cheddar cheese (I use sharp)
1 cup of ranch
5-8 oz of hot sauce (I use between 5 and 6; depends on how spicy you like it.....
Mix it all together and bake on 350 for 30 minutes.

Since the big D, I have used veggies and pork rinds as dippers. Both very good.

My blood sugar likes it!

Thanks guys for all the help! I went with ham and cheese roll ups. I used the chive and green onion cream cheese and added some sharp cheddar. About half will make it to the pary tonight. The other half is in my belly.

My friend makes a mean artichoke dip. I already called her to make sure she was bringing it and asked for the ingredients to make sure I could eat it. I will go to the party with my veggies (no one else will eat them) and my WASA crackers and eat myself silly on dips. And drink some wine.
