A Chocolate Glaze for Your Doughnuts

low carb doughnuts with chocolate glaze

I just finished a batch of my low carb doughnuts and wanted to share the recipe for the glaze.

Sugar Free Chocolate Glaze

2 ounces of Bakers unsweetened chocolate

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup Splenda

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp butter

In small glass bowl, combine broken chocolate,  and cream.  Microwave for 1 minute.  Stir gently to melt chocolate.  When chocolate is well blended, stir in sugar, butter and vanilla. Beat gently until smooth.  Let the mixture thicken a bit, stirring occasionally.  Dip your fresh doughnuts, and pull them on a wire rack to cool and set up.

* You can adjust the sugar to your taste- 1/2 cup is perfect for me, but…..it’s your choice.  The only carbs to consider are the carbs in the Bakers  chocolate, which equals 1 net carb for 1/2 ounce.  As you are using 2 ounces that would equal 4 carbs, divided among 12 doughnuts.    That would be a little over .3 carbs per doughnut.

Not bad!!!

Happy Cooking!!
