    My children made Gingerbread at the weekend and the smell whilst cooking and subsequent biscuit a day for pudding has really tested my resolve. Then I came upon this fat bomb thread and thought I had the answer:
    2tbsp grass fed butter
    1tbsp double cream
    1 tsp ground ginger
    0.5 tsp cinnamon
    0.25 tsp all spice
    Just tested the 'raw' mixture before putting in the fridge and it tastes like the smell of gingerbread ! .... but then a strange after taste - grrrr the grass fed butter is salted and that does not quite work for this recipe.

    Oh well I think I shall have much fun experimenting with this. Just what I needed as the choc cravings are strong at the moment.

    Ooo...that looks good, though I'd probably use that much spice for one of my recipes that makes 15 mini bombs.

    It is said that truth passes through 3 stages: First, it is ridiculed. Then, it is violently opposed. Finally, itís accepted as being self-evident.

    P.S: I don't see any reason why not to use egg yolks as one of the fats? It's used raw in ice cream after all...

    I have a new favourite fat bomb - dark and bitter.

    250g pot of mascarpone cheese
    125g 100% choc (I used the M&S columbian one they have in the hot drinks section - tesco sell it too as drops, so more expensive!)
    1 tsp molasses - this recipe makes 30 bombs, so this is nothing. I wanted to keep it quite bitter, but any sweetener to taste.
    2ish tblsp strong espresso, or tia Maria (again, insignificant in the total quantity.

    Whip or beat the mascarpone until soft
    Melt the choc and beat in the sweetener
    Add the coffee/alcohol - don't worry if it goes really thick
    Beat or whip into the cheese, keep going until really well mixed and soft.

    Then roll in baking paper into a log (might need to chill a bit first), chill and slice
    Also works well in a silicon ice cube tray (needs to be soft so they pop out)
    Or can chill slightly, make small balls and coat in cocoa or finely chopped nuts

    Be aware, this is dark, strong and bitter. You might need to adjust to your taste.

    This sounds delicious, Sara.
    When do you eat fat bombs on THD?

    I used to make fatbombs as well as my own dark and bitter chocolate, when I was trying keto / LCHF, but since I have been back to proper THD I have not touched any.

    The first, simple answer is you don't!
    The next answer is as a phase 3 treat.

    My personal answer is that I eat a bit phase 2+ all the time. My diet would hardly change if I were lighter. I'm eating in a totally sustainable way and still slowly losing weight, so I'm happy. I also eat very low carb most of the time, probably onky eating significant carbs once or twice a week. I also find it very easy to eat very large amounts of protein - too much, really,and excessive protein affects blood sugar and kidneys/liver. I find that a high fat treat can give me energy without overloading my system. It's not that different from having a lump of cheese on a slice of cucumber. I've also been eating this way a long time now and I am getting much better at listening to my body and responding. I might have two as a dessert, or maybe as breakfast if I'm teaching and can't work on a full belly, or as a snack if I have lunch at 12 and dinner won't be until 9. They are definitely within the context of my whole diet, not just an add-on - so if I have chicken for dinner, the next day I might want more fat, if I've had a juicy steak, less so.

    I know that is a really long answer, but it's important that things like this are taken in context.
