Quick, Easy Square that Everyone Who likes Chocolate Loves!
WALNUT OR ALMOND ROCO SQUARES
Very yummy! Your family and friends will love these. So easy to make and so addictive. It helps if others will help you eat these - believe me, they can be addictive!
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.
