Homemade Chocolate Bars with Stevia (Sugar-Free, Low-Carb)

CHOCOLATE CANDY BARS ARE INEXPENSIVE TO MAKE AT HOME WITH THE ADDED BONUS OF INCLUDING YOUR FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS   I’m the kind of guy who doesn’t mind making homemade gifts for the people I love. So, I decided to make homemade low-carb chocolate bars as a surprise for Valentine’s Day to give to Mrs. CBB along with some not-so-crafty decorations that I’m sure she will laugh at. It’s the thought that counts, right? Homemade chocolate bars or other chocolate candies are not meant to look perfect because it is the imperfect that says, “I made this with Love” that matters most. What I love the best is the cost of making homemade chocolate bars vs. store-bought. Before we start this recipe for homemade sugar-free chocolate bars ….. I just want to point out that if you don’t care for sugar-free chocolate you can easily use regular chocolate chips  to make this recipe for homemade chocolate bars.

Low Carb Sugar-Free Salted Caramel Cheesecake

MAKING THE BEST HOMEMADE CHEESECAKE IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK-SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO IT MY WAY!   A couple who are friends of ours absolutely adore cheesecake so when we invited them over for dessert last week we thought we’d surprise them with this decadent  low carb, sugar-free Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Oh yes, they were surprised! We are also huge fans of cheesecake especially the salted caramel cheesecake but most importantly there must be two things present; Thicker Crust Thick Cheesecake If you can carry out those two aspects of a cheesecake you’ve got yourself a winner. I’m actually quite amazed at how many people think cheesecake is a difficult recipe. That is far from the truth. When we created our salted caramel cheesecake we wanted to keep it simple so our guests could add any variation of toppings we offered. What I like about toppings and cheesecake is that you can add just about anything. Since the CBB house has went low carb and sugar-free just about everything we make takes that path. It has been 2 years since Mrs. CBB gave up sugar and she feels great and doesn’t crave it like she used to. For this […]

It’s all around easy to make and deliciously healthy. What I love about this jam is that you don’t have to slave over the stove nor do any fancy work to get it done. Essentially this is a refrigerator or freezer jam which means you can store it away and enjoy without canning. The process takes about 30 minutes from start to finish but keeping it in the refrigerator over-night is the key to its success.

Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Squares (Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free)

YOUR SWEET TOOTH WILL LOVE THIS LOW CARB CHEESECAKE DESSERT.   Lemon lovers this low carb lemon cheesecake is for you. While Spring cleaning our entire refrigerator we found 3 bricks of Philadelphia cream cheese that needed using up. Naturally, since we both have a sweet tooth Mrs. CBB and I went to work thinking about low carb desserts with cream cheese that we could create. Low carb cheesecake was our first thought, but what kind? We already knew that a low carb cheesecake would have to be a; Sugar-Free Cheesecake Gluten-Free Cheesecake Then we toggled back and forth ideas about unique cheesecake flavours that we could keep low carb. Tough times I know. Since we recently made a batch of low carb brownies (recipe to come) we decided to stay away from chocolate and go with a citrus cheesecake. Lemon cheesecake seemed like the obvious choice but could we make it taste like the real thing? Of course we could try. Since our low carb lemon pound cake with frosting was and still is our most popular low carb dessert we thought we’d make cheesecake with a tangy lemon twist. Creating a low carb cheesecake recipe wasn’t too hard […]
