I am going away for a few days tomorrow so I will resume posting as soon as I get back. We are going to Scotland and it will be the first time we have been away by ourselves for over 10 years. The hotel is beside a loch and looks absolutely beautiful. Looking forward to a relaxing few days. The hotel provides bed & breakfast so I have got together some low carb snacks I can use for lunchtimes. These include, pork curls, peanuts, pistachios and of course chocolate (as a treat).
Today I intend to spend getting myself ready by conditioning, moisturising etc. Still need to do Callanetics before I go.
Chocolate Cheese Ball
8oz cream cheese, softened 2 tbs brown sugar (optional)
1/2 cup butter, softened 3/4 cup 70% chocolate chips
1/4 tsp vanilla extract 3/4 cup of nuts
1/4 cup sugar (sugar substitute can be used)
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add the sugars; beat until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Line a tray with greaseproof paper. Shape mixture into small balls and place on paper. Refrigerate for at least a hour.
Just before serving, roll each cheese ball in nuts.
3g Carbs - I intend making this without using sugar so I guess the carbs will be less.
