Another helpful tip I used. I love ice cream but it is really high in carbs. So instead now I take heavy whipping cream and a favorite frozen fruit for me its blue berry's and put them together in a bowl and hand mix if you stir long enough it turns in to almost a ice cream texture and is really good.
We have chocolate cheese, at our Hyvee market. It is just cheese and cocoa. Tastes just like fudge. great on its own, it is best kept in the freezer, and can be eaten straight out of it.
A real treat my wife came up with is to take a couple slices of the chocolate cheese, put home made whip cream on it (just heavy cream, whipped), and then top it with a few blueberries and strawberries, or some raspberries and blackberries. It is pretty incredible, and a real summer treat.
I know the cheese thing sounds weird, but it is totally legit. If you don't tell someone what it is, they just say that it is nice fudge, not too thick.
