I did not care for these. Ended up throwing the whole batch out. The texture and taste was off.

This is a great low carb recipe for those times you get the sweet tooth. Since the high fat diet is not unhealthy as most falsely claim it to be (for most of us anyway), the flavor is not robbed here in this recipe. This is a keeper.

These were really tasty. I made these on two separate occasions, once with peppermint extract as specified in the recipe and once with almond butter instead of peanut butter. I used the Splenda baking blend, so I found that I needed almost a cup of it to obtain the perfect amount of sweetness. I also added an extra 1/2 cup of cocoa and 1 teaspoon chocolate extract to make these a bit more rich and chocolatey. It also made the consistency thicker which I preferred. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
