We went to a bday party over the weekend and didn't want to be tempted by the cake, so we brought our own chocolaty dessert. We've tried out a few different low-carb desserts, but not have really grabbed us until this great one from Deliciously Thin.
Peg's Ice Cream Reese Cup
- 1 package sugar free chocolate instant pudding
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup ice water
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
Fill a mini muffin tin with small paper liners. Mix the pudding mix, heavy cream and ice water. Fill cups 1/2 full and then add 1/4 teaspoon peanut butter. Top with remaining pudding mix. Freeze until solid and then store in ziploc bag. Makes 24.

I enjoyed a few low-carb snacks at the party too. One was a cheesy artichoke dip that I ate with carrot sticks and the other was a blue cheese crumble spread on celery. Here is that recipe.
Creamy Blue Cheese Celery
- 1/2 package of cream cheese or low-fat neufachel cheese
