Chocolate No-Bake Cookies
« on: May 05, 2012, 09:10:33 PM »
I modified this recipe so it's REALLY good!

My mouth is so happy! These get even better as they cool.

Chocolate No-Bake Cookies

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons xylitol or16 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. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter.
 
2. Add the cream, cocoa, and sweetener to the melted butter and mix it well, bringing the mixture to a boil.
 
3. Let it boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly; remove from heat.
 
4. Stir in the beanit butter and vanilla, mix well.
 
5. Add nuts and coconut and stir until fully combined.
 
6. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, and let it cool.  The cookies will harden as they cool. I made 16 two-bite cookies. 3.2 carbs for the entire recipe.

I've been craving chocolate oat cookies for a long time. They got kind of hard by today so I'm thinking about putting 1/2 cup chopped pecans in next time instead of the fake oats. I'll let you know how that works.

I made your bacon wrapped cod recipe tonight for company and they raved. I used three kinds of dip - plain Ranch, chili and garlic Ranch, and cayenne Ranch. I think I was the only one who ate the cayenne. Yay! I have some leftover for whatever I cook tomorrow!

I've been getting rave calls today about last night's dinner. I gave them the last of the coconut cake for dessert. I was full, so I skipped it. Pat, pat, pat, pat, pat. Oh, my arm hurts from patting myself on the back! It was fun (dinner was fun, not patting myself on the back).

I'm glad you're having a great time, Umpa! Come back refreshed!!!

I made the Chocolate No-Bake Cookies using 1/2 cup pecans instead of the oat fiber stuff. My mouth thought I had died and gone to Heaven! I used a hammer to break the pecans into tiny pieces. I suppose a food processor would work as well, but wouldn't be as much fun! Anyway, dropped by teaspoonfuls to make 16 pieces, they're .25 carbs per piece. Delightful!

It's cooled down around here again to the 60s.
I think I'll make these later today or tomorrow. :)
