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.
