Why I Love This Recipe

I know I am not the only diabetic on this BB. Shredded coconut is one of my favourites and I bought liquid sugar substitute and want to use it.

These creamy candies contain no sugar, yet are

full of flavor and easy to make.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 package (8 ounces) light cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons liquid sugar substitute, such as Sweet & Low Brand
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1 cup unsweetened flaked or shredded coconut
Grated unsweetened chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, toasted sesame seeds or toasted chopped almonds for rolling


Beat cream cheese, sugar substitute and coconut extract in medium bowl with electric mixer until smooth.

Stir in coconut.

Refrigerate until slightly firm, about 20 minutes.

Place grated chocolate in shallow bowl.

For each candy, shape scant 1 tablespoonful of the mixture into 1-inch ball.

Roll balls in chocolate.

Store in refrigerator.

Sugar-Free Almond Balls:

Substitute chopped toasted almonds for the

coconut and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract for the coconut extract.

Roll in grated chocolate.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Did I answer this? No, I've never tried anything other than the liquid. If you do let me know please.

These sound great, I will try them soon. Have you tried using splenda in these?
