Sometimes you just need to have a piece of chocolate to help you get through your day, hey we’ve all been there before! This is actually my second attempt at making these lil bad boys, my first batch came out pretty horrible- bitter and tasted too much of stevia- which I am not a fan of. I almost did not want to make these again. BUT I thought I’d give it a try with a granular sweetener and see if they were edible this time around, so I used xylitol and it came out pretty darn good! If you are a stevia fan feel free to use that in this recipe, all ingredients can be modified to meet your taste preference.
