You can cut the carbs even further with cocoa you make yourself. Buy Hershey’s Dutched cocoa or another brand of dutched cocoa. Mix 2 tsps of cocoa with a teaspoon or so of the DaVinci sugar free syrup we discussed in another message. Slowly add a couple tbs of half and half while stiring until smooth. Then pour in boiling water.

It’s a bit different in flavor than the commercial stuff, but it is much healthier as it is without the chemicals and full of the real cocoa phytochemicals.

And it is only about 2 grams of carb.

Check out my recipe page at http://geocities.com/jenny_the_bean/recipes.htm for some more low carb treats.

I think today might be the day I move that site to a phlaunt.com site and spiff it up.
