Need recipes for sugar free (diabetic friendly) recipes for holiday treats: fudge, bars, cookies, what-have-you.

Everyone is enjoying delicious things this time of year & I just shipped out a load of traditional fudge & goodies to family across the miles. It got me to thinking about a very good friend who just exited the hospital after open heart surgery and he is diabetic. We also have a couple of other family members who are borderline diabetic that we'll be seeing next weekend. I'd like to put together some little gift packages of home-made holiday tasties: sweet things that are just like the sort of treats our moms & grandmas would make us, except, you know..... that won't kill the people we care about. I've seen this
thread and this
thread, but they don't really have what I'm looking for. I'm not looking for suggestions to just give them fruit, nuts, cheese, or things like that as "alternatives" to the desserts. (fwiw, friend's doctors have given the okay to eating sugar free things in moderation.) I'm hoping to find reliable recipes - that have been tried & verified as good - for tasty holiday goodies like candy, bars, & bite size sweets sans the sugar. Thanks!
