SHAPING THE FAT BOMBS
As a general rule, shaping fat bombs is pretty darn easy. Most are made up of butter, cream cheese, or coconut oil.
This makes them easy to form and shape since these ingredients are super malleable when soft.
For this recipe, we call for the use of a silicone candy mold. However, it is also just as easy to form the fat bombs a spoon. You can also “drop” the fat bombs onto a piece of wax paper as well.
Regardless, shaping the fat bombs will be very easy, especially if you don’t care what they look like when done.
DOES IT MATTER WHAT SHAPE THE FAT BOMBS ARE?
- In short, no. It really doesn’t matter what shape they are in. It’s all personal preference.
- If you prefer eating them like candy, you might decide to shape them like candy is appropriate.
- However, if you’re making these for a nice sweet treat, shape won’t matter.
CUSTOMIZING YOUR MAPLE CINNAMON FAT BOMBS
For some, the thought of whipping butter might turn your stomach. However, you can easily make some small changes to this recipe that will be just as fatty and yummy.
Here are a few variations on the original recipe you might consider when making this recipe.
CREAM CHEESE VARIATION
The easiest way to change these maple cinnamon fat bombs is to swap the butter for cream cheese. Make sure your cream cheese is softened and follow the steps of the recipe as written.
CREAM CHEESE AND BUTTER MIXTURE
If you’d like to mix cream cheese and butter together, reduce the amount of butter to 1/4 cup and include 1/4 cup softened cream cheese. Again, follow the rest of the recipe as written below.
CREAM CHEESE AND COCONUT OIL MIXTURE
Lastly, you can remove the butter from the equation again and combine coconut oil (melted) and cream cheese. Like the cream cheese/butter mixture above, use 1/4 cup of each and mix well.
With this variation, know that the fat bombs won’t fluff up as much as they will with the others. There will also be a taste of the coconut oil.
However, if you are dead set against using butter, this is another good option for you. As with the others, follow the rest of the recipe as written.
