My Favorite Ingredients for these 5-Ingredient Low-Carb Mocha Fat Bombs
Beat cream cheese and butter together in medium mixing bowl until creamy (about 90-120 seconds).
Move about half of cream cheese mixture into a second mixing bowl. Then you'll add in four tablespoons cocoa powder and espresso, then beat for an additional 90 seconds.
In the other half of cream cheese mixture, add sweetener and beat until combined (about 30 seconds).
Gently fold espresso cream cheese into sweetened cream cheese. Careful not to over mix as you want a swirling effect. After refrigerating, scooping, and freezing, you'll have a delicious snack or dessert to grab!
