Re: Chocolate No-Bake Cookies - Microwave directions

Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons xylitol or 16 drops FTS zero
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa - 1 carb
2 tablespoons beanit butter
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup smashed pecans -1.2 carb
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut - 1 carb

1. Put the butter in a small bowl and microwave it for 30 seconds.
 
2. Add the sweetener, cream and cocoa to the melted butter and mix it well, then return it to the microwave for 15 seconds.
 
3. Stir in the beanit butter and vanilla, mix it until it's well combined and creamy.
 
4. Add the nuts and coconut and stir until fully combined.
 
5. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, and let it cool.  The cookies will harden as they cool. 3.2 carbs for the entire recipe.

I have an idea of dropping the cookies into mini-cupcake or candy cups, drizzling them with caramel and sprinkling them with a little more coconut to dress them up. Put in a pretty box, they would be a nice gift. I could give it to myself. :)

I did try putting a little Walden Farms caramel syrup on one and it was really tasty, but the syurp is too runny to treat the whole batch that way. Any ideas? I don't want to use Russell's caramels as they have malitol in them and I like the no-pain treats that these are now. Has anybody played with the caramel syrup to thicken it up, or have an alternative?

How about making these with peanuts and using some WF marshmallow dip for rocky roads? Or almonds and coconut just for the Joy of it? If we had a good crunchy cookie base, we could do some twicks.

I keep all my cookies in the freezer so they are not in my face cause I will graze on them.Its a good idea to slice your cheesecakes and freeze them too so when you want a piece you just take it out. ;)

Umpa. I started with the same idea. out of sight out of mind! but found out early that sweets are almost as good frozen if not better. speaking of cheese cakes. I was looking at my recipe and it calls for half cream cheese and have mascrapone cheese. which is also 0 carbs. my crust has toasted almonds in it as well. sometime I would like you to help me alter to fts.

Deb, try adding more 0 carb beanit butter. It will increase the volume but won't change much else.

I made the recipe this afternoon - carb count a bit higher as I used Peanut Butter and only had walnuts.  Easy peasy it made 11 tspn size but became a bit bigger when I flattened them a out a bit.  Nice treat with my coffee  ;)
