How to Make DIABETIC FRIENDLY CHOCOLATE BALLS (SALLYE)

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
