I'm new, I need CHOCOLATE! Help!
 
New to this and terribly missing chocolate, any ideas?:blush:

Tish437 03-06-2010 05:50 PM

Yes. I had this this afternoon. Choc molten cake.

2 T cocoa (be careful, it goes all over)
small amt. of sweetener, 1 tsp at most
1 egg

Put in a small bowl, like a custard dish.

Mix.

Insert a pat of butter, maybe some broken pieces of very dark chocolate (like at least 75% cocoa) in the center. This is the liquid center, the "molten" part.

Nuke on high for no more than a minute. Turn out onto a small plate or saucer.

If you have any, top with a spoonful of freshly whipped cream.

It's really good.

girlygirlnc7 03-06-2010 06:34 PM

Yeah!
 
Can't wait to try it, thanks so much! (I would be headed to the store if I hadn't just put my son down, lol)

I'm not sure if it's induction friendly, but at least it's something!

Google Linda's Low Carb Recipes, she has lots, all sections of food covered including snacks and desserts. I use a lot of her recipies. Yesterday I made up a whole bunch of her cheese crackers for snacking. :) Let me know what you think.

Thanks
 
Thanks Tish, this was great! I used only 1 T of cocoa and it was enough! :clap:

Tish437 03-08-2010 06:11 AM

You're welcome. I'll try it with 1 T. also.

what kind of chocolate you want ?

Low Carb Specialties ChocoPerfection Bars

These are wonderful but so expensive that I stopped buying them. :(

Atkins bars are great also.

Netrition carries an assortment of low carb chocolate in a variety of products. I'm sure you'll find several that you'd like to try. Check them out at Low Carbohydrate > Chocolate and Candy

That molten snack sounds really good. I'm on induction though..so..yeah. I had a chocolate protein shake..so gross!

The vanilla isn't quite as bad.

This induction thing may suck for a while, huh?

chocolate bliss
 
I am right now sipping a divine cup of decaf coffee with coconut oi, heavy cream, liquid sweetner, and hershey unsweetened chocolate. It is yummy and filling and tastes like i imagine the chocolate river in charlie and the chocolate factory would taste.:D Turns out it will probably end up being dinner cause i'm getting full here. Oh and it only has one carb. Guilt free and yum-my!

I also mix some cream cheese, some unsweetned cocoa, and heavy whipping cream to make a mousse like dessert..sometimes i freeze it and call it ice cream...hope these help...missing chocolate is the worst

Try....Lindt 90 percent dark chocolate bars. These are my favorite and really low in carbs, I eat three squares everyday... but I`m not in induction.

Quick chocolate or vanilla fix
 
Hey there,

I take some cream cheese and put in a microwavable dish then I add a splash of vanilla -more for a larger amount of cc. Microwave 5 to 10 seconds - maybe 15 for a whole block of cc then mix/mash briskly with a fork. I add powdered erythritol and mix briskly again and then I can do two things - leave as it for vanilla cheesecake like snack or add cocoa powder until reaching enough chocolately-ness for choco fix snack. I know that the carbs are mainly in the cocoa powder but you may not need a lot to satisfy. I will make a bunch and then split into smart sized portions.

Works like a charm. :)
Hope this helps,

Marian

Try a square of 70% Lindt. Just break off a bit at a time and let it melt in your mouth. It's only a couple of carbs.

I love the bitter sweet taste of dark chocolates! I can finish a whole bar in one sitting. Is that alright?
