Keto Candy-Two Ways

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar substitute
  • 2 TSP vanilla
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar substitute
  • 1/4th tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp Maple Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract
  • Optional: food coloring, walnuts

Instructions:

Melt coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Add 1 cup sugar substitute and cocoa powder and whisk until dissolved. Set half the chocolate mixture aside, and divide into ice-cube trays or candy molds. Freeze until the top is firm. Meanwhile, blend cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar substitute, and softened butter until well combined. Mixing continuously, add xanthan gum. Divide mixture in half, adding maple extract to one half and almond extract to the other. Use food coloring to distinguish flavors if desired. Spoon filling onto frozen chocolates, and top with walnut halves. Spoon remaining chocolate mixture over the top of the filling and freeze until firm, about 3 hours. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
