Today’s photo is titled “Yummy!!!!!”
Skinny Chocolate
One of my favorite treats is Skinny Chocolate. This is another Trim Healthy Mama recipe.

I usually make basic Skinny Chocolate recipe that calls for 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup cocoa powder (I use Hershey’s), and 3-4 tsp. of Truvia (powdered) or sweeten to taste with your preferred sweetener. 
I add a tsp of Vanilla because I love vanilla and add it to almost all my sweet treats.

You can put in molds or a baking sheet with wax paper, put in the freezer and enjoy!
You can also sprinkle with ground almonds or sugar free shredded coconut or add extracts to make different flavors. I just haven’t been brave enough to try adding to my Skinny Chocolate (other than vanilla).

Today I wanted something different then the plain chocolate, so I hopped on over to The New Lighter Life blog to try the Peanut Butter Chocolate Skinny.

All I can say is they were so good!

Here is what you’ll need to make this deliciously low-carb treat.
Skinny Chocolate
1/2 cup Coconut Oil (melt if needed), I try to buy the best I can afford because I want the most nutrients possible.
1/4 cup cocoa powder, I use Hershey’s. (I now use raw cacao)
1/2 cup peanut butter.
1/4 tsp salt, in my opinion Himalayan Salt is the best and I want the best for my ‘candy’.
1 tablespoon pure vanilla
4 1/2 Tbsp Xylitol or Truvia powdered, I use homemade Truvia.

Whisk all ingredients together and pour in a square baking dish or candy mold and place in the fridge or freezer. You want to make sure that you powder the Xylitol or Truvia.
Skinny Chocolate
I purchased this spice/coffee grinder from Amazon a year ago and love it. I also bought a silicone candy mold so my Skinny Chocolate would look pretty.

If you are on a low glycemic diet, eating 1/3 of the original Skinny Chocolate recipe is fine (if you are on the Trim Healthy Mama diet then you'd eat this in in an S setting).

By using the candy molds for me I am able to keep better track of how much I'm eating. I usually only eat 2-4 a day.
One of my goals is to eat 3 tablespoons of coconut oil a day and this is one sure way to reach it.

The kids love this 'candy' too. I don't feel guilty at all when I give them a piece of Skinny Chocolate because I know all the ingredients are super good for them.

These are pretty similar to Fat Bombs!

Update: I know use raw cacao and will sometimes add raw cacao butter.

  1. I've been wanting to stop by and visit, so glad I did! Yummy looking peanut butter cups - they look real! But, what caught my eye is the peppermint at the bottom! I love peppermint! I've been making skinny chocolate, but I think I am eating too much, LOL. How much can you eat in one day?!

  3. Michelle, what is great about the candy molds is it's kind of like portion control. One usually does the trick but I must admit eating two is better ;)

    I believe you can eat about 1/3 of Skinny Chocolate but that is for the plain not the peanut butter.

    I got close to 20 pieces with the Peanut Butter and about 15 with regular skinny chocolate. I'll need to count how many next time and add that to this post.
