Fist time you do have to wait a bit, but then as you will fall in love with them, all you have to do is cut every day few pieces. In that way, there will be always at least 1 tray left to make straight when you need it. And it really takes only 3 minutes for your Moon Cheese like pops ready.
And I have to say, I got my mum hooked to those. Every time I talk to her, she has to tell me how perfect and popular they are. She makes them now almost every week and says, they are perfect in the evening when she needs just something tiny, but still healthy.
As we all know, there is almost everything we can come up with as a low carb version.
Well, one thing is a bit difficult.
Is there a Low Carb Popcorn?
We have tried to make a bread like popcorn, but not very successful with kids.
Then about 2 years ago I saw this idea for the first time. But since it requires to keep the cheese drying for 48 HRs, I have never ever got into it.
Because it takes time and because I was sure that before those 48Hrs are gone, all the cheese will be gone.
But then again it is worth trying. Or not?
So last week I tried it, manage to not eat any single piece in 48Hrs and Ta Da.
It is extremely addictive and delicious. Immediately the next day, I had to prepare another batch and that is what I am gonna do today for all of you.
Is there a replacement or substitute for Popcorn?
If you do buy from time to time Moon Cheese, this could be a perfect replacement, but with a completely different price.
We love Moon Cheese as well and when I see it in the shop, I do by it occasionally. But get surprised all the time with the hight price. I either forget how expensive they are and promise myself to never buy them again.
Because truly, you can make them at home anytime. And add to it, you will not use any preservatives to keep them fresh. And another addition: you can pick whatever cheese selection you want. It just needs to be hard cheese. And you can actually make a Keto popcorn collection for a party. Not a bad idea. I will do it next time.
And if you will enjoy it, have a look at our similar snack Low Carb Keto Gold Fish, which will blow your mind.
Then I will take some pictures, make a video and place it all here for you to see and try.
This recipe is really easy and you will not regret trying it.
If you manage not to eat them immediately, they are even better the next day.
And cost wise? Much much cheaper then any cheese Pops you buy in the supermarket if you find some.

Sophie has made a Facebook live, where we have tried it for the first time. Just in case you want to have a look, here it is:
But now to the recipe for Low Carb Cheese Pops:
You can use any hard cheese. I would suggest to cut it into slices and then make it into small squares since it will dry better. The first time we made it, I had to keep it much longer to dry, since even after 48 Hrs it was not fully dry.
I also have to add, that some friends tried it as well in the dehydrator to fast up the process. Just make sure, you place the cheese on a parchment paper and set it onto the lowest temperature. Otherwise, the dehydrated cheese will melt completely fall to the bottom.
