COOKBOOK

LC Chocolate Mints from Chuck Dudek

8 oz. Philadelphia cream cheese
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter
1/4 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 teaspoon peppermint extract (or 2-4 tablespoons peanut butter)
1/4 cup cream
30 Equal tablets dissolved in a little water.

Put cream cheese and butter in bowl and microwave for one minute.  Add remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly.  Spoon into small ruffled paper cups (like chocolates are packaged in) to make 12-14 cups and refrigerate until firm.  Store in refrigerator.  23 grams total (net of fibre) for the mint chocolates, 27-31 grams total for choco-peanut cups.  Note:  If you use 15 Equal or Splenda packets instead of 30 Equal tablets, add 12 grams to total.  If you use different brands of products, adjust the gram count accordingly.  Peter Pan has 2 grams (net) per tablespoon.  I could not find a count for peppermint extract, so I counted it as 1/2 gram, same as vanilla.  Try these--you'll like them.
