No Way!  This just can’t be.  Sugar-free!  How?

Let me first start by saying please make this in small batches.  It tastes delicious!  So why small batches then?  Well, for several reasons.  First, since I used swerve sweetener, once this product hardens, the chocolate crystallizes.  Not so bad, because I just zap it in the microwave and it’s good to go.  But because, second, too much of a “good” thing is not such a good thing.

My low carb eating plan, which means no refined sugar, is the hardest part of the plan. That and french fries.
