Keto Chocolate Heaven

by Cameron Moss

Ingredients

Chocolate Base Ingredients

  • 4 oz butter (1 stick in US measurements)
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup Swerve Confectioners

Chocolate Topping Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 5 tbsp Swerve Confectioners

Instructions

How to Make the Chocolate Base

  • Melt butter in a small pan on low.
  • When butter is melted, add softened cream cheese and vanilla extract. Turn off the heat (but keep pan on the stove) and use a fork to mash the cream cheese and vanilla extract into the butter.
  • To a large bowl, add cocoa powder and Swerve Confectioners. Mix to combine.
  • Add cream cheese/butter mixture to the large bowl. Using a hand mixer on low, mix everything until you get a well-combined, fluffy mixture. (Note: The mixture will be very thick.)
  • Spread mixture evenly into a pan, making the top as smooth as possible. (I used an 8x6x2″ glass pan.)
  • Freeze for 30 minutes. A few minutes before getting it out of the freezer, make the chocolate topping. 

How to Make the Chocolate Topping

  • Mix all ingredients. (Note that the coconut oil should be melted, and the topping should be made right before adding it to the base; otherwise, it will begin to firm up.)

How to Make the Final Dessert

  • Remove chocolate base from freezer. If there are any ridges on the top, smooth them a bit with the back of a spoon.
  • Pour chocolate topping on top, as evenly as possible, tilting the pan if necessary. Some of the base may melt slightly and give the top a fun chocolate swirl.
  • Cut into 30 pieces and enjoy!

Notes

  • Store covered in the fridge or freezer. A little secret: when you store it in the freezer and you let your piece thaw for a few minutes before eating, I swear it tastes like a Double Chocolate Klondike Bar!
  • Use unsalted or salted butter depending on your personal preferences.
  • Traditional cocoa powder can taste a bit bitter to some people; for a smoother, less bitter flavor, use Dutch Process Cocoa Powder.
