Caloric Intake

I made the Carmel Peanut Puffs last night. When I brought them into work, I anticipated that Tina would declare them too fattening.

I headed her off at the pass by calculating the calories for one Caramel Peanut Puff. I got a bit muddled trying to figure it out. 40 caramels per bag, a serving size is 180 calories, 4 carmels is a serving size, I used about 35 caramels, there was about 5 caramels worth of leftover carmel in the bowl, I coated 40 marshmallows.... it nearly gave me a headache.

I sucessfully determined that there are approx. 87 calories per Caramel Peanut Puff.

Then Tina told me she doesn't like nuts.

I will have to consume 1200 calories worth of Carmel Peanut Puffs by myself.
