Low Carb Treat : Port Wine Dark Chocolate Fat Bombs


If you should have some port wine at the back of a cupboard, then you may want to consider using two tablespoons of it in this low carb chocolate treat recipe for port wine and dark chocolate fat bombs! They are super simple to make and will keep indefinitely in the freezer. Also these port wine and dark chocolate fat bombs have less than 1/2g of carbohydrate. Yes, you read that right! One of these, which is about the size of a fun sized sweet/candy bar, has exactly 0.4 g net carbs. That means you could eat FIVE of them and use just two carbs of your daily total! Seriously I'm not recommending you do eat five in one go, and I would doubt you would want to ... they are really rich.

Make them in your favourite chocolate shape molds such as hearts or shells ... or another shape, the choice is yours. When made you will definitely want to keep them in the refrigerator, as they melt quite easily at room temperature.

However, these smooth, dark chocolate treats with the fruity flavour of port wine makes these low carb dark chocolate fat bombs the perfect way to end a meal. They will keep indefinitely in your freezer ... but just a reminder do not store at room temperature or they'll melt!

Ingredients
24 servings. You may get more or less depending on the size of your molds.
1/4 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup Hershey's - or similar - Extra Dark cocoa
3 tablespoons powdered erythritol
2 tablespoons port wine
A few drops of liquid stevia if needed
How to make them, instructions can be found at Marye's 'Lowcarb-ology' blog here

These can make a lovely treat for yourself, a good friend or loved one.
