cheery chocolate bombs

This is is an unexpected post today. As some may know I’ve been following Kirsty and taking pictures of daily life following the prompts, at the same time I’m also eating and living a much healthier way, cutting out the carbs.

So when the prompt for yesterday’s photo was sweet I went into a little bit of a panic. Firstly I posted colour for the next day instead. I’m a little off topic a bit here, but was stopped in my tracks out shopping with a friend the other day, Rhodes old town just has the ability to do that constantly.

That was then followed  by a very long trawl on the t’interweb for low carb desserts. You would not believe how many there are, I was lost for at least an hour on Pinterest not to mention all the different Facebook groups and pages.

Desserts galore but not really that many sweets. Something small, sweet, tasty and melt in the mouth. The sort of decadence you see in the shop window bit very rarely try. Like truffles they are usually complicated and take a lot of time to make and include lots and lots of sugar.

Eventually I saw a post on a low carb facebook group that was cream cheese rolled in jello, it looked good, but itmwouldmhabe been very squishy and not easy to hold.

This then is my interpretation of many different ideas, I’ve called them “cheery” after I made a mistype, but a Lindy from allpackedup liked the name and I agree.

Ingredients

  • 1 packet (200g) of full fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of whipping cream
  • 1 packet of sugar free jelly crystals (I used cherry)
  • 1 bar of dark chocolate 72% cocoa or more

Method

  • Whisk up the cream and blend in the cream cheese and jelly crystals. Place in the fridge to chill
  • once chilled mould into small balls, place on wax paper and chill again.
  • while they are chilling melt your chocolate, you can temper it if you want to make them look really special.
  • once the balls are chiilled, use a fork to bathe them chocolate, place them back into the fridge on the wax paper

Enjoy, if you try different flavours let me know how they turn out.
