Individual Flourless Chocolate Cake

individual flourless chocolate cake 024

Remember how I said I was going to get some chocolate and flowers for myself for Valentine's Day? I found something even better. This individual chocolate cake made without flour.  It was super easy too and only requires four ingredients: Egg, sugar, butter, and chocolate. You can melt the baking chocolate with the butter in the microwave and then slowly incoporate that into the egg and sugar. Pour the batter into a rameken and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. This is life changing for me, ...

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

chocolate mousse 002

I've been trying to gradually cut back on my carb intake.  If I can eat low carb for at least 2 meals a day and 1 low carb snack a day I'm pretty proud of myself.  Trying to eat every meal low carb, is really hard and that is why I'm taking it slow. When I discorvered that chocolate mousse is considered a low carb dessert, my mind was pretty much blown away. Chocolate Mousse is heaven. Kind of like this Chocolate Mousse Pretzel Crust pie that I made last year. You could eat just the filling of th ...

Caramel Rice Krispies Bars and Star Wars

caramel crispy treats 014

  I really do apologize about this post. I've been doing really well trying to post healthy recipes but I just had to make these.  Regular rice krispy treats are ok, but have you ever had the ones with caramel in the middle? My brother's wife really likes rice krispy treats and I had told her about this recipe.  She said that I must bring them this weekend, so that is what I did. It was a crazy weekend and super busy! My family went to Star Wars this weekend!  I remember when I was lit ...

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

mini oreo cheesecakes 001

These bite size mini oreo cheesecakes will not have you missing a whole slice of cheesecake! The crust is an oreo and the top of the cheesecake has crushed oreos on top.  Cheesecake is hard to make low carb. It has so much sugar in it. I'd use the sugar substitutes but I have yet to find a decent one that doesn't leave a bad after taste in your mouth. That is one thing I hate about Stevia. I wish I had someone trying to help me update all my Weight Watcher Recipes.  I've got almost 400 Weight ...

The Best Fudge Ever

the best fudge ever 006

Guys, I've finally mastered fudge! The last two fudge recipes I've tried making didn't require any candy thermometer, and maybe that is the reason why the 2 recipes didn't turn out? The recipe just called for boiling the fudge for 3 minutes after everything was combined and the fudge ended up looking like goo. I kid you not! I've had many fudge making goo disasters in the past couple of weeks up until I tried this recipe. Not to mention, it takes longer than 3 minutes for the fudge to boil and ...

Christmas Cornflake Wreaths

christmas crack popcorn 026

Christmas Cornflake Wreaths are an easy and quick no bake treat to make during Christmas time.  Next up on my Holiday Treat making extravaganza, are these Christmas Cornflake wreaths. I must admit this is my first time making these. I've seen them before on cookie platters and have always admired them. It's just like making regular rice krispy treats but you use cornflakes instead. Christmas Cornflake Wreaths are pretty simple to make. In a large pot ( I used my Dutch oven) melt some bu ...

Christmas Crunch Popcorn

christmas crack popcorn 015

Christmas Crunch Popcorn is packed with peanuts, red and green M&M candies, and almond bark. The perfect gift giving snack to bring for someone around the Holidays.  I made this popcorn the day after I had tried it at work on Friday. We had our Christmas party and played bingo. Someone had brought the popcorn in for the party, and I couldn't believe how good it was. I couldn't stop eating it! I thought it would be a fun gift to give to people or to put in a Holiday care package so that is ...

Brownie Cookies with Peppermint Frosting

brownie cookies 010

  Brownie cookies are like a blank canvas. You can do anything with them! The frosting and the toppings are all up for you to decide. For the frosting, I just made a mint frosting using peppermint exctract. Then, for the toppings I used a hodge podge of different candies that I had left over from decorating other cookies like Red and Green M&M's, crushed peppermint, chopped up Andes mints, you name it. You can do whatever you want with these cookies.   Are we still baking c ...
