I was really desperately wanting chocolate today. I mean this morning, early, so I must have been pretty bad off.

I took a tablespoon of coconut oil and chunked up about a teaspoon + of baking chocolate and melted it together. I added a drop of vanilla flavor and a packet of Stevia. After I mixed it all together, I poured it on to greased saucer and refrigerated it for about five minutes or so. It didn't come off the plate like I had hoped it would, but a spoon and a little effort took care of it. It was a terrific chocolate candy treat.

I'd appreciate any ideas or thoughts on this. It was a total experiment.

I make something like that. It even works with coconut oil and baking cocoa. I sometimes add unsweetened coconut and almond slices and call them almond joys. I chill them in the freezer on wax paper. They slide right off.

That's how I make mine, Cynthia, but I always use a metal pan so I can give it a slight twist when chilled and it pops right out. Another tip, if you score it with a knife after a few minutes in the fridge, you can make it into regular size pieces, which makes it easier to calculate the calories/carbs per piece for the recipe.

I don't see why that wouldn't work.

I just recently came upon this recipe yesterday. Made them last nite. I used organic chunky peanut butter. I guess my mixture was a little too warm from the microwave because when I added my 85% chocolate chunks, they melted. But that was ok, I just ended up with chocolate peanut butter, yum. I used a mini muffin pan. Took a little bit of banging, but they popped out.

I've known Becca since I started low-carbing 3 years ago and also have tried her FAT BOMBS. She, like me, has struggled to get to goal, despite no cheating and with many hormonal issues going on as well.

Really good, those Fat Bombs. I add some unsweetened coconut to mine sometimes. I keep a bag of these in the fridge freezer at all times and can eat them right out of the freezer. Satisfies my sweet tooth without having to bake anything. I ate my last one yesterday and need to make up another batch!
