Fabulous Fudge Melts ~ THM FP~ Low Fat~ Gluten Free
I really wanted to try to make an FP candy. There were quite a few attempts leading up to this recipe! Just when I would get the taste down, they would come out of the oven looking quite funny and unappetizing. I was so excited when I finally got it down, and I'm glad I didn't give up! These have a delicious melt in your mouth, fudgy, brownie consistency. These little candy bites only have 5 calories a piece, 0 carbs, and almost 0 fat! I know we don't count calories on THM, but sometimes it's nice to know.
For this recipe you will need:
3 Tbsp. Cocoa powder (This is what I've been using lately. It's great quality, and the large bag lasts me a long time)
5- 6 Tbsp. THM Gentle Sweet (start with 5)
1/8 tsp. mineral salt
1 large egg white, room temperature (this does not work as well with carton egg whites)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract (measured accurately)
Optional- chopped THM approved white or chocolate chips, garnish amount. I used a combo of Lily's and Choc Zero
In a bowl, use a whisk to combine the Gentle Sweet and cocoa together, then add the mineral salt. Use a spoon to stir in the egg white and vanilla. It should not be runny. It should be like a thick brownie batter. If it is too thin, add some more Gentle Sweet. Drop onto a parchment lined baking sheet, no bigger than 1 inch balls. Sprinkle chopped chocolate chips on top, if desired. Let sit for 20- 30 minutes before baking for 10 minutes in preheated oven at 350 degrees. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes, then remove with a metal spatula.
Can't wait to give these a try! Thank you for continuing to share your recipes. My oldest daughter and son have slowly been getting into nutrition and health of their own accord. They've both read Trim Healthy You and my daughter has been trying out some of the recipe cards. She's planning to make your hot fudge cake tomorrow for St. Valentine's day. :)ReplyDelete
