Make Someone Feel Special With These Low-Carb and Low-Calorie Brownie Hearts!
Here's a little bit of fun... treat yourself, or someone else to a love heart!
Really, this is just an exercise in dressing your brownies to look a little bit more special. You can cut out any shapes you like, but we've gone with hearts (approx. the same size as a standard brownie). You'll have offcuts from doing this - keep them and serve them with some delicious low cal ice cream as either a sundae or a brownie bowl.
Low calorie brownie toppings
We tend to use cream cheese and erythritol (and colouring if desired) as our go-to icing of choice. Any sprinkles will be adding sugar unless sourced from an online specialist selling sweetened sprinkles - regular sprinkles will add around 5g carbs per teaspoon.
For a firmer frosting, you'd need to add a little butter, but we have skipped the butter and kept our icing loose - perfect for a drizzle. Either cover all over or go with a little drizzled pattern.
Otherwise, the other option you'll see is dark chocolate. To keep calories down for this, just add a few stripes - not a full covering.
(The macros below are for the pink cream cheese and erythritol covered brownie - the most calorific of the three)
- 1 pack of
- 90g cream cheese
- 90g of powdered erythritol
- A few drops of pink/red colouring
- Sprinkles to decorate if desired
