Cream Cheese S’mores (CE)
Ooey-gooey yet surprisingly low in fat and calories, these rich stacks are a heavenly, healthy take on the overly sugary originals. If you can’t find raw cacao nibs, feel free to substitute shaved dark chocolate.
From the Clean Eating Magaizine
- 1/4 cup low-fat plain cream cheese
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- 2 tsp dark cocoa powder (70% cocoa or greater)
- 12 natural graham crackers (Try: Health Valley Organic Oat Bran Graham Crackers)
- 1 tbsp raw cacao nibs
Preparation time 4mins
Cooking time 7mins
Preheat broiler to high.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and honey; mix until smooth. Stir in cocoa powder and mix until almost completely blended, leaving a few white and brown streaks for presentation.
Spread about 1 1/2 tsp cream cheese mixture onto each graham cracker. Arrange crackers on a baking sheet and broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until warm and soft.
Remove crackers from oven and arrange on a serving platter. Sprinkle with cocoa nibs, dividing evenly, and serve warm. Enjoy open-faced or sandwich 2 crackers together for a more traditional treat.
