Sloane invited me to her virtual kitchen today to share a clean, healthy dessert. Are you expecting twigs covered in carob? I won’t say I haven’t had yummy carob desserts, but I have serious chocolate on my mind.
Do you think you aren't allowed to have chocolate pecan cheesecake? Not. True. You can have these. They’re also gluten-free.
One way you stay in balance while eating this treat is that they are decadent and you likely will not eat more than two.
½ cup organic cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp. organic unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp. organic raw pecans, ground, and another tbsp. for sprinkling on top
Mix all but the final tablespoon of pecans together (by hand works fine) in a mixing bowl until the cream cheese and cocoa powder are smooth and creamy.
Put the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Sprinkle your hands with water, then shape ½ tbsp. of the mixture at a time into balls.
Garnish with the ground pecans you held in reserve.
Keep refrigerated until party time.
Easy, creamy, deep chocolate flavor. That’s what I call holistic!
Here's a peek into my fantasy romance where dreams and psychic connections become reality. This is the first book in the series. I hope you enjoy it.
