Chocolate Treats

Posted by Solitary Dancer on August 30, 2007

Chocolate Treats

Ingredients:

1 ounce unsweetened chocolate (the bar kind)
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 packets Equal (I would prefer Splenda. You might be able to use Stevia with a bit of experimentation)
1 ounce crushed nuts (macadamias, etc.)

Yield: Varies

Directions:

Melt the unsweetened chocolate and butter carefully. Remove from heat.

Stir in cream and vanilla. Stir in Equal, fold in nuts.

Pour into tin-foil-lined pan. Chill.

Variations:

Double the cream and the sweetener.

Add 2-tablespoons of peanut butter.

Pour into mini-muffin tins, then add 1/4-teaspoon peanut butter to each candy.

Add 1-teaspoon peppermint extract or any flavored extract (i.e., raspberry, cherry).

Add twice the amount of mixed nuts without crushing for nut clusters.

Substitute orange extract for the vanilla and sprinkle with finely grated orange rind.
