Dark and heavenly: sugar free chocolate bark
Dark and heavenly: sugar-free chocolate bark

I love chocolates…there isn’t a single night when I sleep without gobbling up at least one teeny-weeny piece! And yet I maintain I am always on a diet.

The love of my life is dark chocolate. And of course my hubby, a diabetic…Ever since I got to know him I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of sugar-free options, in fact I can easily say that my repertoire with sugar-free desserts is just as large as the sinful kinds!

So this one afternoon, as I was walking down the market lane I glanced upon the sugar-free chocolate compound from Morde! Wow! Was I excited! My sugar-free compound was always sourced with difficulty, but now…my mind was already whirling with possibilities.

Should I make a prune cake, or brownies or may be just something super fast…why not a bark! And that’s how this awesome piece of edible art was crafted.
