I love chocolate, the darker the better, but of course it comes with a price - calories. So I wondered how to overcome this. The sweetener was easy but it is the fat content of chocolate that makes it solidify, so I thought of an alternative calorie-free way of making solid chocolate. This is a work in progress and improvements may come along but here is where I am at right now. To make six sugar free low fat chocolates - take 2 teaspoons best cocoa, two teaspoons fat free yogurt, two teapoons calorie free chocolate syrup (I used Da Vinci brand - in the UK this is available by post from the Low Carb Megastore) Mix to a paste. Put a sheet of non stick paper onto a small plate. Drop six blobs of the mixture onto the paper. Put the chocolates into the freezer. When frozen they are ready to eat. Eat from frozen.
