Valentine's day treats?

I don't want to cheat on Valentine's day and I would like to make a nice dessert for DH.
Can you share some delicious LC desserts that you tried and loved.

Flourless fudge cake is really good too. Tastes like a chocolate truffle. With whipped cream on it, it is yummy and a good Valentine treat.

FFCC

Ingredients:
6 oz Hershey’s unsweetened baking chocolate
2 sticks butter
5 eggs
1 cup davinci chocolate ( or any other flavor) syrup warmed with ¼ C ground erythritol and 2 tsp Stevia Plus ( made by Sweetleaf)—not regular liquid stevia

Mix sweeteners into warmed Davinci.

Melt chocolate in microwave or double boiler. Cut butter into small slices and slowly mix into chocolate one piece at a time. When butter and chocolate are mixed, add sweetened liquid and blend well. Add eggs, one at a time just until batter is well blended. Pour into cake pan, pie pan, or glass baking dish.

Bake in water bath at 300 for 45-50 minutes. Cake should be slightly sponge-like to the touch. Cool to room temp and refrigerate until chilled through. Cut into 10 slices. Don't skip the water bath. Best made the day before.

This cake may be frozen.
Kahlua is good, and so is peppermint paddy

Counts:
Entire cake 2888 cal / 303 fat/ 57 (-26 fiber) carbs / 51 protein

One slice 289 cal / 30 fat / 6 (-3) carbs / 5 protein

The totals shown are without the fiber subtracted, so the net for one slice would be 3 carbs.

Hey Maja!!

Anything on Lauren's blog (jacksmixedtape is what she goes by here)

The Black Bean Brownie recipe (on this forum)

Shawniesioux's Lemon Pound Bundt Cake is excellent! Recipe also on this forum with TONS of variations

I also like the Cheese Muffins recipe, and frequently make them in my mini muffin pans and top each with a teaspoon of strawberry or red raspberry SF jam

I have modified this recipe to low carb. It is old (at least 6 years old) and made it one Valentines Day a few years back. I love it since it requires no specialty items, everything can be found in any grocery store. But you have to make it at least a day ahead. Here ya go: (I have made my subs in paranthesis)

French Silk Pie

1 cup sugar (I used splenda)
3/4 cup butter
3 squares (3 oz) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1 ready to serve chocolate pie crust ( I make this with no crust and it is great!!)

In a bowl, beat sugar and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 4 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in chocolate and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on high speed after each addition and scrape sides of bowl constantly. Transfer to pie shell (I put in pie plate). Cover and chill for 5-24 hours or until set. If desired, top with unsweetened whipped cream, chocolate curls and strawberries.

Make meringues(sp): beat egg whites and cream of tartar until thick, then add some sweetener and vanilla and beat to stiff peaks, then make mounds on a covered baking sheet(parchment or a silpat), use a spoon to make a "cup" in the center and bake at 300 for 40 minutes or until they're lightly browned and kind of hard.
Let cool completely. Right before serving, fill with berries and top with whipped cream.

lol as an experiment I tried to make these like a 'boston cream pie', wasn't bad but not that great. basic recipe was 4 large egg whites, 1/2 tsp cream of tartar, 3pks splenda, 2T cocoa powder. Beat whites and cream of tartar until thick then added the sweetener and cocoa powder, beat stiff and bake as above. Filled with s/f vanilla pudding and drizzled a tablespoon of smuckers s/f hot fudge sauce over the top.
Think if I try that again I may use the s/f hot fudge sauce in the meringues instead of the cocoa powder.

Everything mentioned so far sounds good! I was wanting to bake the Fiberfit Cream Cake. Has anyone here made this before and is it any good? It looks so good. The recipe calls for powdered Fiberfit, but I have the liquid. Any ideas of replacing the powdered with the liquid that I have on hand?

If I can't figure that out, I'll be making my berry cheesecake with a couple of drizzles one chocolate and one raspberry...w/ a dollop of whipped cream.

For Valentine's Day, I think I am also going to try some chocolate covered dried cherries, too.

Got some chocolate cherry cookies coming... after a big test and bball game tomorrow. They're going out for a test run in the dorm hall tonight, lol!

Gotta try a French Silk Pie once I get more erythritol--sounds decadent, dawnyama!
