I'm not a big fan of artificial sweeteners, but I understand that they have their place. For me, when I'm cutting out sugar, I need something to replace it for a little while until I've gotten over the initial withdrawal.
Thank goodness for Linda over at Linda's Low Carb! I love her website. I probably visit it at least once a week, even when I'm not eating low carb. The recipes are just good and easy and usually pretty healthy. I don't know what I'd do if her website went down; I actually asked Chad if he thought it was crazy to print all her recipes and make a kind of book (he said that yes it would be crazy).
The latest recipe at Linda's is called Jaffa Whip. It's a recipe she found from someone else's website that isn't there anymore (see, I'm not paranoid; it could happen!). Thankfully, she saved it and posted it for all of us. It's supposed to taste like a Jaffa cookie, which I've never had but that sounds delicious. It's a little bit of work to make it, but I have to admit that it's the most delicious thing ever! Here's a picture from Linda's website:
It's extremely hardy, though. Linda says it makes four servings, but I'm going to say it'll probably be more like 6-8 for us. I personally can't eat very much of this in one sitting since I don't have a gallbladder. Usually fat doesn't bother me these days, but this is pretty much a fat bomb, so I have to be careful. But that's ok, because a little really fills you up. Plus, you get your chocolate fix!
Thanks for saving and sharing the awesome recipe, Linda!
