DIRECTIONS

  • The success of this recipe depends upon the melted chocolate and butter being at the same temperature.
  • If not, the chocolate and butter will separate.
  • Melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a bowl over a pot of simmering water.
  • Stir in the Splenda and cool to room temperature.
  • Combine the chocolate and butter until smooth.
  • Stir in cream and vanilla, then the nuts if using.
  • Spread evenly into small, parchment lined loaf pan-I use a 4x7 pan.
  • Chill until firm. Cut into pieces and store in the freezer.
