*WALNUT OR ALMOND ROCA SQUARES* (GF)
WALNUT OR ALMOND ROCO SQUARES
Very yummy! Your family and friends will love these.
Snack Crackers (1 g carb ea.),
OR my Crisp Nutty Crackers - a Spin-off of the beloved Almond Thins (0.4 g carb ea.)
(see recipes to the right)
1 1/4 cups chopped walnuts or slivered almonds (300 mL)
1/2 cup butter, melted (unsalted if crackers are salted) (125 mL)
1 tbsp whipping cream (15 mL)
1/2 cup SPLENDA® Granular, (125 mL) OR
Half and half Splenda packet equiv. (I add a couple extra) and powdered erythritol (nice!)
1 cup sugarless chocolate chips, (250 mL)
OR from 70% Lindt chocolate bar
Line a greased cookie sheet with crackers. Sprinkle walnuts or almonds over crackers.
In blender, combine cooled, melted butter, whipping cream, SPLENDA® Granular and erythritol, in that order; blend. Pour over crackers.
Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 8 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Place in oven another 2 minutes. Gently, draw tines of fork through molten chocolate in order to spread it (this is the “glue” for the walnuts on the crackers, so do it carefully, letting a bit of molten chocolate touch each walnut or almond).
It’s difficult to figure out the exact number of carbs due to all the variables, however, they will be between 2 and 3 g carbs each.
