Low-Carb Cherry Cordial Dessert
4oz of Full Fat Cream Cheese
1 small box of sugar free Cherry gelatin
1 Tbsp of Hershey's Unsweetened Baking Cocoa (100%) - Dark Chocolate
Step One: Prepare the gelatin as directed on the box. You want the basic preparation. Sit it aside but don't put it in the fridge just yet.
Step Two: Your cream cheese will need to be softened - you can either sit it out prior to use and allow it to soften or you can pop it into the microwave for a few seconds until it is good and soft. Either way, it HAS to be softened or it will get all caught up in your mixing wands! (I learned this the hard way!) Using a hand mixer, mix the cocoa with the softened cream cheese and add liquid sucralose to taste. I like my chocolate just a little on the bitter side so I probably use a little less sweetener then most. The amount of chocolate can be adjusted if you prefer a stronger chocolate flavor - just remember to adjust your carb count!
Step Three: Now, add your prepared liquid gelatin into the bowl with the cream cheese and cocoa. You want to blend them together with a hand mixer, making sure to get everything blended in good. It will be a bit "foamy" on top.
Step Four: Give it once last stir then cover your bowl with plastic wrap and place it into your refrigerator until it is "set" - about 4 hours.
Step Five: Put some into a pretty dish, top with some whipped cream (optional) and enjoy! ^_^
8g Cream Cheese
0g Liquid Sucralose
9g Total - Makes 3 servings at 3g per Serving (this doesn't include any carbs in the optional whipped topping!)
** This recipe can easily be turned into a "mousse" like consistency by doubling the amount of cream cheese and mixing it on high with a hand mixer (to add lots of air) but the carb count does increase! **
