DIRECTIONS

  • Note about erythritol:
  • I realize that the erythritol is a special ingredient.
  • Some stores are starting to carry powdered sugar alcohols, or you can order online from Netrition or other places.
  • I haven't figured out how to make really delicious chocolate treats without it at this point.
  • Erythritol is the sugar alcohol with the least blood sugar impact, but you can use others.
  • If the erythritol you use isn't powdered, it won't dissolve much in this recipe, so I recommend running it through a blender first, but I'm happy that the most recent erythritol I got came powdered, which is great.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in bowl.
  • Add vanilla and liquor.
  • If the artifical sweetener is liquid and concentrated, add it to the liquor.
  • Since there are different liquid sweeteners of different concentrations, you may have to play with the total amount of liquid, and cut down on the liquor, or add water.
  • Usually the total liquid you want is about 2.5-3 T.
  • Add the liquid slowly and mix until it all comes together.
  • Roll into balls.
  • The flavors will mellow over the next few days.
  • Store in refrigerator or cool place.
  • Carbs depend on serving size.
  • 17 balls will get you exactly 1 gram of effective carbohydrate per ball, plus a tad over a gram of alcohol and 1.5 grams of fiber.
