Deluxe Bliss Balls

Bliss balls are, well, blissful. But there are ways to make them heavenly. Start with a centre of silky peanut butter fudge. Wrap around a layer of chewy, nutty filling. Smother in chocolate. I don’t tend to sweeten my bliss balls very much, especially when making them low-carb. Just taste each…

Chocolate and Cashew Butter Fudge

This recipe is dedicated to Beks. I’ll miss your lovely way of cheering me up without fail! Homemade cashew butter? Please don’t think this is too much of a task, because – in all modest honesty – it’s pretty hard to fudge up 🙂 The amount of stevia you use is…

Coconut Hot Chocolate

It’s funny how something so creamy can be dairy-free – but don’t laugh. I’m serious here. A dangerously delicious, coconut-scented winter warmer can be between your mitts in under five minutes.

Caramelised Cinnamon Nuts

Didn’t think keto caramelisation was a thing? Think again. These nuts are sweetly spiced and certainly nice, sans sugar and excess carbs. One note to the wise, however – if you don’t want the nuts to clump together, spread them out on a baking-paper-lined plate or tray to cool. I…
