    I just read this and it sounds YUMMY!
    My daughter is making it as I type this. But she is using stevia instead of sugar. I will try it using stevia and carob powder since I can’t have sugar or cocoa.

    Her results…good, but not as sweet as it probably is with sugar. Not as flavorful as she thought it would be. (We didn’t have any ice cream to add to it.)

    I have found (from family and friends) that people who eat sugar on a regular basis, and then try stevia, say it is not as sweet. (My daughter eats sugar.) I don’t use sugar at all, just stevia, and if I do taste something with sugar it is so sickeningly sweet I almost cringe! But then 10 seconds later my body is saying “I want more!” That goes to show ya just how addictive sugar is! LOL

    In my opinion, you gotta give up sugar and fake sugars if you want to switch to stevia. The others are too sweet and the taste buds have to adjust. Just be patient. Don’t use too much or you will get an aftertaste. Once you use JUST stevia for a while you will find the others to be too sweet. (But watch it…just one taste of sugar can have you addicted again!)

    We are going to try using vanilla cashew milk instead of water next time. That should add a little more flavor. But all in all…not a bad recipe when you have a hankerin’ for something sweet and chocolaty!!!

    And stevia is NO CALORIE…so it is worth trying to switch over too!

      I’ve not tried stevia before, it’s a good alternative. I do find the full amount of sugar a little too sweet for me so I usually reduce it. I don’t usually take any sugar in my tea. I think the cashew milk will give it a nice nutty flavour. Tell me how it turns out.

      • Robin says:

        I tried it with carob, stevia, and cashew milk. I LOVE IT!

        (And I am NOT a fan of carob…but since that is all I can have…I use it on occasion.)

        I added a few more tbsps of cashew milk after, to mush it up a bit…since I can’t have ice cream.

        I will be making this OFTEN!

          So great to hear! Did you substitute direct quantities or change the amount slightly? I’m sure readers would love to know in case they need to substitute for allergies and such. Thanks for all your feedback. I’m tempted to make one now for an after dinner treat.

  • Shayla says:

    Just made it a few minutes ago, it’s absolutely delicious! I think I may add a little more water next time and a little less sugar like you did. (I wanted to try the original recipe first just in case I liked it better that way.)

    Many thanks for this recipe, it will be perfect to pass onto my 91 yr old mother in law, she likes to bake small things now and again and not having to lift lots of heavy ingredients out of the cupboards.
