Very yummy! My grandpa and uncle who are both diabetic went NUTS (haha peaNUTS) over this at our christmas party. I made this using an aspartame based sweetener (Equal) which is sweeter (tsp. for tsp.) than Splenda, which is probably why the other posts suggested using more Splenda (that would make sense if this recipe was written for a different type of sweetener). So I suggest changing the sweetener amounts according to which type you are using.
Being a diabetic I try many different types of recipes. I must say that this is the worest diabetic recipe I have ever tryed. I feel that it is the unsweetened chocolate that gives this receipe it's bad taste. I may try to alter the recipe and remove the chocolate.
Was very good,but agree that I would add more splenda next time. Bev
