Hi NailThatJello

I've been reading your chocolate posts with interest. Inspired by your efforts, I've made my own low carb choc with coconut oil, coconut finely shredded in the blender, finely ground almonds and Truvia, a Stevia product, to sweeten. I use Green and Black's organic cocoa powder, it has such a good taste http://www.amazon.com/Green-Blacks-Cocoa-Organic-powder/dp/B...

Your peanut butter cups sound delicious, have you found some peanut butter that has no sugar or even worse, HFCS content?

In other news, I found suppliers of chocolate nibs and cocoa butter on Amazon.

Please be careful, cocoa butter comes in two grades, 'cosmetic' that's used for making your own lip balm and hand cream etc. but it's not pure enough to eat, and 'food' grade which is okay to eat, but so expensive in the UK.

Yesterday, I made some low carb chocolate cake. Instead of the usual wheat flour, I used one third finely ground almonds, one third gluten-free flour and one third chestnut flour. I also used Truvia, a branded Stevia to sweeten. The finished effort wasn't bad, a little dry but edible.

I'd like to get it even lower carb as the GFF contains both rice and potato flour, but I've not had much success so far in substituting anything else for that.
