Can I use liquid splenda or does this need the powder type?

Splenda is NOT half-sugarMarch 07, 2012 By None
Kate, you are mistaken. Splenda makes a baking mix that's half-splenda, half sugar, but Splenda itself IS sucralose.

Hi Laura, Ive been following your blog for a long time and I have to say that I am surprised you use Splenda......it is half sugar (dextrose). I use pure liquid sucralose and I love it.

Awesome Chocolate TreatJuly 21, 2010 By None
I made these exactly as Laura wrote the recipe. I used all organic ingredients and very good quality cocoa. I was licking the bowl, spoon and whisk before washing! That's how good they are. So easy to make and keep on hand for the special moments when only chocolate will do! Thanks Laura!

Like a cool breeze!April 24, 2010 By None
Pros: Pleasant flavor and mouthfeel. The texture of these haystacks was quite like real haystacks that you find at the chocolate shop, thanks to the erythritol. The erythritol does give a cooling effect, which is not too bad (I keep them in the freezer or fridge anyway so it doesn't matter). Downside: My body only tolerates about 1/4 cup of erythritol in a meal period and I'm 105 lbs, so I can't eat a bunch of these at once. Otherwise I'll get really, really thirsty (since erythritol's excreted in the urine, your kidneys will be in full drive processing it all). I have also made these without the cocoa and they were tasty as well.

Chocolatey DelightsApril 05, 2010 By None
Wow, these are rich and yummy! They will definitely fulfill that craving you're having while on your low-carb diet. I used a lot less sugar supplement than recommended. Just experimented to taste. Enjoy!

These are awesome!November 24, 2009 By None
I love anything chocolate, and these are so easy to make, that I can have them around all the time! I add a dash of salt and a scoop of protein powder (like another reviewer) and they turn out wonderfully every time! (They melt easily, so they're best kept refrigerated.) Thanks for all the great LC recipes!!!

Delicious AND easy!!May 29, 2008 By epoyea
My biggest weakness for living a low carb lifestyle is my sweet tooth (and my love of cooking!). These little haystacks are not only ridiculously easy to make, but they hit the spot! My litmus test for low carb recipes is asking myself if I'd share them with others (do they taste enough like regular carb food) and these are a definite yes! Had to stop myself from eating them! Thanks for the recipe!

Too yummy!May 24, 2008 By bebo5357
These are easy and sooo good! I used a tablespoon of Fiberfit and a few drops of stevia for the artificial sweetener, and Hershey's Special Dark cocoa. I also managed to stir in an extra half-cup of coconut and a scoop of protein powder. I made them small, just bite-size, and it made about 50. My husband doesn't normally care for anything that's sugar-free, but he loves these!
