    sugarpea's Note:

    With the great new fat free or lite toppings available, "Fools" don't have to be such a guilty pleasure. I've added variations for apricot, blackberry, peach or nectarine, and strawberry fools. You don't have to buy superfine sugar. Simply put granulated sugar in a blender and blend until powdery. Do up a batch and you'll have it on hand.
