Default Dark Chocolate Treat

I love really good dark chocolate. In Europe, it is usually more bitter than what can be acquired easily in the US. I made up a recipe for when I crave some dark chocolate, and I enjoy it. I hope you will too.

TOTAL PREP TIME - 5 MINUTES!

I take one whole square (1 oz) of unsweetened dark chocolate. It is 8g carb, I think. I put it in the microwave with 1T real butter, and melt it, 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between.

It will begin to get real thin (watery). Once it is almost 100% melted, I add in 3 T of cream cheese (I don't know the carb count for that of the top of my head) and 1/4 t of vanilla extract.

Return to microwave and heat for another 30 seconds or until cream cheese begins to get soft. Remove from microwave, and stir until all of cream cheese is incorporated into the chocolate.

Add 3T splenda, and stir. It will begin to thicken up a little. Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with non-stick spray, and with the back of a spoon, spread and flatten out the chocolate mixture until very, very thin. Cover with (sprayed) aluminum foil, and place on freezer on a plate.

When you need a little chocolate, go into freezer and break off a piece. Very satisfying, a little bitter, but I guess you could add more splenda if that bothers you.

Best of all, it is very quick (not including freezer time) and doesn't dirty up a lot of dishes.

Please let me know what you think.

I make this occasionally, but I use more cream cheese and eat it like a chocolate cheesecake
