new year's eve desserts

#1: Silver & Gold Countdown Cookies

1 batch of low-carb cookie dough (sugar cookies, gingerbread, oreo, chocolate chip, peanutbutter)

luster dust OR melted sugar-free chocolate

(optional) clock stencil

Roll out the cookie dough and cut into circles.

Bake according to directions.

Cool fully, then use luster dust (or melted chocolate) to draw on a clock face (a stencil makes it easy).

Nutrition info depends on the cookie dough you choose, and the amount of chocolate used.

#4: Shimmering Rum Espresso Truffles

Adapted from: http://www.sugarhero.com/disco-truffles/#_a5y_p=2960612

1 batch of rum coffee sugar-free truffles (pick your favorite truffle filling and add espresso for the flavoring, along with rum for the liqueur)

edible luster dust or edible glitter

Prepare the truffles, then cover them with a light coating of gold/silver luster dust.

If making molded truffles, you can paint the molds with a thin layer of the luster dust before filling them with the chocolate, this way the luster dust will be a part of the shiny smooth chocolate coating and not stick to your fingers when you eat them.

 

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
