Chocolate Bars

By Avera

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • 2 tbsp heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup splenda

  • 1/2 lb chocolate, unsweetened

  1. Melt chocolate in pyrex dish microwave. Add butter and melt. Add cream(I usually just need 1 Tablespoon).Whisk together well.Add enough splenda until sweet enough for you. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and put them in your freezer. Wait about 20 minutes and enjoy. One or two was all it took to satisfy my craving and kept me on the right track.

I know plenty about Stevia, since I've used it for the past 25+ years. Stevia is totally natural, unlike nearly all sugar substitutes. It's very potent (extremely sweet) and tends to be bitter (back of the tongue), but some manufacturers are doing a better job of the process. Several nutritionists have recommended it for me. Dr. Bernard recommended it in his book. Another good and fully natural sweetener is Xylitol, and it prevents tooth decay!! Dentists found out about it when patients started exhibiting less cavities because they chewed gum with Xylitol!! Then doctors came on board. But Stevia is MUCH cheaper than Xylitol.

Yes, I'd like to know also if anyone knows about stevia. I've used it in my banana bread recipe (I add 1 additional egg white and a little more water in the recipe as suggested on the stevia package) and it was wonderful. I've also started using it in my tea. Haven't heard or read anything bad about it. Please share if you know of any studies or have had advise from a physican or nutritionist. Thanks.

Does anyone know if u can sub stevia for splenda. My sister with MS stopped taking artificial sweetners because the Dr. said it was bad for her. She is now 67 and the Dr. attributes the fact that the MS has not gotten worse because she got off all artificial sweeteners. Since Stevia is made from a plant - I'm hoping that it is okay..
