"This is super yummy! I made with Ghirardelli 60% dark choco chips to keep it as low-carb as possible (used 40 chips). I also did not use the heavy cream. I used Rodelle gourmet vanilla. My thinkin..." See moreg was to make a choco-type bread spread like Nutella to abate my morning sweet tooth, but this is worthy of eating by the spoonful. I put the mixture back into the 8 ounce cheese container and 1/16 of the container is 6.5 carbs. For those not counting carbs, this is still a wonderful tasting treat. Try it, you won't be disappointed."
"Replaced the chocolate chips with unsweetened cocoa powder to make it low carb and low sugar, and it turned out fantastic. Didn't end up needing to refrigerate it very long without the melted chocolat..." See moree."
"I added Hazelnut liqueur to this along with half of a dark chocolate candy bar and some cocoa. It is rather thick but still very good. I can see using this as a layer between cakes, on top of layere..." See mored desserts, etc. Imagine this would also be wonderful with some prepared coffee and coffee liqueur. The possibilities are endless in terms of diversity. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!"
