69 carb. Makes 36 cookies @ 1.5 carbs. (counts do NOT include the chocolate bars)
*I didn't have the chocolate bars so I mixed the following:
1 1/2 T butter
3 T splenda
4 1/2 T unsweetened cocoa
Melt butter in microwave in 6" square plastic container. Stir in splenda and cocoa and put in freezer untill firm. Pop chocolate out of container and cut up. Nutrition counts using "homemade chips": 36 cookies @ 1.7 carbs
These do not spread and are like little puffy muffins - texture is more cake-like than cookies, but they taste great. Best the first day, a little dry the second. They are not too sweet and I may use 1 cup splenda, 1/2 cup sweet & low next time.
7 oz butter
2 oz vital wheat gluten

These were GREAT! Very tender. I mixed some splenda and cinnamon and sprinkled on the top before baking. (add the carbs) Biscotti: After baking, slice each log into 4 slices and put on cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes, turn and bake another 5 min.
For chocolate mandel: Melt 1 oz unsweetened bakers chocolate with 1 tblsp butter and stir. Add 1 tsp Splenda.
Makes 16 @ 4 carb (2 NET carbs)
These were terrific. Great taste and texture. I made 1/2 the recipe (two "logs") ate one as is and made biscotti from the other.
