We declare a new holiday: No-Bake Eve! Let your oven take a breather with these quick, festive, MICROWAVEABLE (!) pizzelles.
✨ 3 PersonalPoints per cookie
💙 WW Tip: Melt chocolate wafers instead of chocolate chips. They set hard and make for easier, cleaner stacking and packaging.
What you’ll need:
● White candy melts- 2 oz
● Chocolate pizzelles (3-4")- 15
● Peppermint hard candy- 1 oz, crushed
● Dark chocolate candy melts- 2 oz
● Vanilla pizzelles (3-4")- 15
● Sprinkles- 1 tbsp
How to make it:
1. Place the white candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 80% power until mostly melted (about 1 ½ minutes), stopping to stir every 20 seconds. If they’re not completely melted, keep stirring until they are
2. Spread a little melted candy coating over each chocolate pizzelle, in a crescent moon shape on one edge of the cookie. Sprinkle with crushed peppermints. Arrange in a single layer on a large piece of parchment paper until set.
3. Place the dark chocolate candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 80% power until mostly melted (about 1 ½ minutes), stopping to stir every 20 seconds. If they’re not completely melted, keep stirring until they are.
4. Spread a little melted candy coating over each vanilla pizzelle, in a crescent moon shape on one edge of the cookie. Add a healthy dose of sprinkles. Arrange in a single layer on a large piece of parchment paper until set.

As we venture out into the world for the holidays, the inevitable looms: judgment by family and friends for, oh, any number of things. Your weight. Your relationship status. Why haven’t you had a second kid yet? How come you don’t have a better job?
To heed off the stress and prevent it from ruining your holidays, try this tip from Allison Grupski, Ph.D., Senior Director of Behavior Change Strategies & Coaching at WW (@allison_g_phd).
“Before you head to the party or welcome the first guest into your home, take a minute to ground yourself in who YOU are. What matters to YOU? What are YOUR values and priorities? How are you living them out—or working on living them out!—this year? If you feel a sense of pride or self-assuredness start to creep in, let it wash over you.”

A yummy treat that’s just 2 PersonalPoints? Yes, please!
With only a few ingredients, you can whip up these crispy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside “cookies-and-cream” meringue treats.
WW Tip: If you want simple, use a large soup spoon to scoop and shape the meringues. If you’re feeling all fancy, use a piping bag with a large round tip.
✨ 2 PersonalPoints per cookie
𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝:
●Egg whites- 3 eggs
●Kosher salt- 1 pinch
●Cream of tartar- ¼ tsp
●Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
●Superfine sugar- ¾ cup
●Chocolate wafers- 12 wafers, finely crushed
𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐢𝐭:
1. Preheat the oven to 200°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla and beat until medium peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar, 2 tbsp at a time, until the egg whites are firm and glossy. Then, using a spatula, gently fold the crushed cookies into the egg whites without deflating them. (Just be sure to keep 2 tbsp of crushed cookies off to the side for the topping.)
3. Using a large soup spoon or a mini cookie scoop, shape the egg whites into circular puffs on the prepared pans to make 30 cookies, spacing them 2 inches apart. Sprinkle the tops with the cookie crumbs you saved.
4. Bake the cookies for 1½ hours. Open the oven door and prop it open slightly to let the cookies cool completely in the oven. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Dropping pounds from your body can have a surprising side effect on your face.
Staying on track during the holidays can feel like a fool’s errand—the stress, the to-do list, the eggnog-flavored everything.
So, in case no one’s told you lately: You’re doing amazing. Keep going. Tag a friend who needs a confidence nudge (or a hug) right now 👇
For some of us, it was the revelation that drinking more water could add more PersonalPoints.
For others, it was reassessing “exercise” as something we do on the daily without even thinking about it (hello, vacuuming, reorganizing the closets, taking our doggies out for a change of scenery…).
What WW trick did you rely on this year?
Ingredient swap! These aren’t any ordinary Cheesecake Swirl Brownies. Thanks to puréed black beans added to the batter—we swear, you can’t taste them!—you get all the decadent flavor with way less butter and oil.

But who’s counting? 😂 This year, it’s been all too easy to focus on everything going wrong. But what if we focused on what’s going right?
The more we practice noticing the positive, the more we will feel the positive—period.

These inexpensive ingredients are quick to whip up into delicious dinners.
Add a little spice to your holiday spread with one of our faves: Gingerbread Cupcakes.
Before we dish out the recipe, a few WW tips…
✔️ To get the best cupcake texture, mix the ingredients well, but not too well. (Otherwise, your cupcakes can feel a little tough.) Stop once all the spices and flour are moist.
✔️ To be sure you don’t overcook these babies, be sure to fill each muffin tin with the same amount of batter. We used an ice cream scoop to make sure that they were equal.
✔️ FYI: You can make these cupcakes ahead of time and freeze them until the day you’re going to serve them!
✨ 6 PersonalPoints per cupcake
𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐥𝐥 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝:

*Ground ginger - 2 tsp
*Ground cinnamon - 2 tsp
*Ground allspice - 2 tsp
*Unsweetened applesauce - 1½ cups
*Molasses - ¾ cups

𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐢𝐭:

3. Bake about 40 minutes (use the old toothpick trick: Insert one in the center and you’ll know your cupcakes are done if it comes out clean). Cool cupcakes to room temperature. Before serving, dust with powdered sugar.
Like pretty much everything in life, losing weight isn’t a straight line. (Anyone remember Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride? Yep, sometimes we get those vibes.)
When you’re working hard and the scale isn’t budging—or is going up—it’s frustrating. But remember: What matters isn’t the number on any one day. It’s patterns over time that show progress.
TELL US: What’s your best tip for overcoming obstacles? We’d love to hear ‘em in the comments ⬇️
