    Dark Chocolate Chunks : Low Carb

    Post by Jan1 on Wed Aug 12 2015, 00:27


    May I interest you in a Dark Chocolate Chunk? These low carb sweets made with 85-90% chocolate do make a nice treat ...

    Ingredients
    2 tbsp Almond butter
    4 squares Dark (85-90% cocoa)
    ¼ cup Coconut oil
    1 tbsp Vanilla essence

    Optional Ingredients
    2 tbsp Rum
    Blueberries
    Nuts

    Instructions
    Put all ingredients in a bowl and microwave for around 1 minute or until mixture is melted and can be mixed together.
    Add rum if this is your chosen option.
    Pour mixture into ice-cube trays.
    Place a blueberry on each, or some nuts (or just leave plain), and place in the fridge until the mixture has set and is solid.
    Turn out of the ice-cube trays and store in the fridge.
    Don't expect them to last long though ...
