Chocolate Crunchies » Low Carb » Gluten Free

This is a recipe for an ingredient that you are going to love.  It’s exactly the same as the chocolate crust recipe cut in half.  This is a fantastic topping for whipped cream, an addition for ice cream recipes, you can add it to cheesecake, or in milk shakes.

I use liquid splenda for this.  I think it’s important to add it to the melted chocolate before incorporating into the dry ingredients as well as mixing it with the butter.  This will make sure it’s sweetened the whole way through.  I do one quarter cup sugar equivalent for each the butter and the chocolate for this recipe. 

040Mix with an electric mixer and bake in a loaf pan.  Mine is glass.  I’ve only ever done this recipe in glass dishes so I’ll suggest you do the same. If I experiment more I’ll update.

This just takes 15 mins to bake up.  When it’s done, let it cool on a rack.  All you have to do at that point is scrape it out with a spoon.  It crumbles rather easily and will have some bigger pieces for that ultimate cookies and cream texture.

  How crazy is it that I got a heart shaped crunchy from this batch?  It’s perfect because I do so love these chocolate crunchies.
