OMG Yum! Dark chocolate fat bombs anyone?
If you’re a dark chocolate lover you’re gonna love this! I was on Instagram minding my own business looking at all your delicious recipes and these chocolate bars floated across my timeline, pleasantly interrupting my scrolling.
I hit save so fast on these babies. They looked delectable and I instantly decided that I must try it. I do love a good chocolate bar and these looked so easy to make!
I loved that there was no need for actual chocolate in the recipe because I am in Jamaica where sugar-free chocolate can be quite hard to come by and from what I see on Amazon, is pretty pricey.
This was the perfect recipe for my Hershey’s Dark Cocoa powder I picked up recently. I just knew it was gonna be amazing and I was so right.
I also used this cocoa powder to make the topping for my Keto Jello Cheesecake Squares.
Dark Chocolate Fat Bombs
At 138 calories per piece and 1.6 grams of carbs each, this is a guilt-free snack to always have on hand. You can of course always change up the flavour by adding in different essences and chopped ingredients.
I chose sliced almonds here but the original recipes called for chopped coconuts. Walnut or pecan pieces would probably be amazing here too and I can’t wait to try it with a bit of peppermint oil mixed in!
