There's no need to travel south for the typical spring vacation. We can save tons of money and enjoy the summer like temperatures at home this year!

All of the early spring flowers are in bloom and more people are out walking the streets and hanging out in the parks. Life is good with the winter weather behind us.

  • Stir butter and chocolate over low heat until melted and combined.

  • Mix in cocoa, sugar substitute(s), heavy cream, almond milk and salt.

  • Heat slowly until a boil is reached. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

  • Serve warm. Store in refrigerator and reheat small batches as needed.


For the sweetener, I like to use ½ cup low carb sweetenerplus ¼ teaspoon stevia powder extract. This reduces the amount of erythritol. However, you can use about 1 ¼ to 1 ½ cups low carb sweetener instead of the two different sweeteners.

Avoid using a sweetener with too much erythritol in it as it can crystallize in the refrigerator. If the erythritol does crystallize, add a bit of heavy cream and reheat in the microwave. The crystals should dissolve with the added cream and heating.

Each serving is about 2 tablespoons.
