Prep:

25 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 c
low fat milk
1/4 c
dry skimmed milk powder
1/4 c
cocoa powder
3/4 c
stevia sweetener***
2 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
raisin bran
1/4 c
puffed rice
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix cocoa and skimmed milk powder together.

Add half cup low fat milk, stir with wooden spoon until it is a smooth paste.

Set aside.
2
***IMPORTANT: BUY THE STEVIA PRODUCT THAT SAY ON THE PACKAGE IT IS A ONE FOR ONE REPLACEMENT FOR SUGAR***
3
Place butter and sugar substitute in a heavy nonstick pan over low heat.

Stir occasionally, till all ingredients are fully melted.
4
Add the remainder of the milk and bring to a boil.

Gradually pour the prepared chocolate paste into mixture, stirring continuously with wooden spoon.

Cook while gently stirring, until mixture forms a very soft "lump".

Mixture should leave sides of pan easily.
5
Add vanilla extract and puffed rice.

Add half the raisin bran , leaving half for use later.

NOTE: Pick all the raisins out of the remaining half of bran and add them to the mix.

Remove from heat, mix well, and set aside to cool.
6
When mixture is at room temperature, roll into small balls between both palms.

Roll these balls in the remaining bran, to coat all over.

NOTE: I coarsely crushed the bran in a ziplock bag to make it easier for the coating process.
7
Place each ball on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Place baking sheet in fridge until balls are set and firm.

Store in fridge in an airtight container
