How to Host a Keto-Kocktail Mixer
How to invite… * created a FB and/or Smore invitation * invite ONLY people you can follow up with immediately (I like to invite 10 at a time, and then PM or text immediately, then invite 10 more.) * DONT prejudge. Invite everyone you know within 100 mile radius (unless they’ve previously asked to be excluded from future invitations. Respect.) * make sure you include something to peak the person you are inviting’s interest. ex: PCOS article if you know they struggle with that. * encourage them to bring two friends and a snack

Recipe!! -- NO BAKE PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE BITES RECIPE:
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup pumpkin purée
4 tbsp to 6 tbsp sweetener of choice (to taste): erythritol granular for low carb (like Swerve), or coconut sugar for primal
1 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
⅓ cup pecans, finely minced
2 tbsp sweetener (erythritol granular for low carb & coconut sugar for primal)
1 tsp cinnamon
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
Using an electric mixer or stand mixer, combine the first 5 ingredients and beat until thoroughly blended.
Freeze the mixture in the bowl or in a round candy mold (or ice cube tray) for 30 minutes or more until firm enough to form into balls.
In a medium bowl combine all the coating ingredients and stir together. Set aside. Using a cookie scoop or your hands, form a ball or mound with the chilled pumpkin cheesecake mixture ( or release from the candy mold).
Roll each cheesecake ball in the coating until covered, and place on lined baking sheet. Re-freeze for 20 minutes or refrigerate until firm, then serve. Store these in the fridge in a covered container
