Now, why didn't you post this before Christmas??? It's definitely a keeper for me, however, so I forgive you. Thanks for posting. I'm going to add some Rum Essence to it because it's likely to be a good replacement for the high-sugar Rum Balls I usually make for my son.

My mother makes some kind of chocolate candy with equal and pecans, but I can't remember what she calls it. It doesn't taste diet, though.

Splenda can be problematic when used by itself with unsweetened chocolate. A little bit of splenda has a tendency to sweetened the chocolate slightly, but, when you add more, the chocolate doesn't get sweeter/stays bitter, regardless of how much you add.

When you combine the splenda with another sweetener, though, it works great in chocolate.

Dove, I'm always a little wary of using Equal (aspartame) in any dessert where heat is involved. This being said, millions of people use Equal in coffee and tea every day, so maybe it can handle some heat.

Assuming it can handle the heat fine, yes, Equal and Splenda will work wonderfully together (half and half).

Dove, my grandmother was diabetic and she used to come up with all kind of recipes to fit her diet. But the recipe that I remember the most was so delishious.

I can't tell you how much of what she used, but you can use your own discression.

Freshly ground chicken
Knox Geliton, Prepared according to pkg.
Low Cal or Low Fat Ranch Salad Dressing.

Grind chickien in meat grinder.
Put ground chicken in prepared Knox gelitin and put in refrigerator until firm.
When firm cut in desired slices and top with Ranch Salad Dressing.

yummi!
