Any chocolate-lover will love these decadent little Low Carb Chocolate Pots for their chocolate fix.
I serve these often when we have friends over for dinner and they always love it, even though most of them are usually not following a low carb lifestyle.

In fact, my philosophy when entertaining, is that I serve all low carb foods – I never cater for ‘normal’ diets.
