CHOCOLATE COCONUT BARK
20 grams Lindt 85% cocoa chocolate, 2 squares
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
Break the chocolate up into small pieces and put in a microwaveable bowl along with the coconut oil. Microwave on 50% power about 1 minute or until the chocolate has melted. Add the Splenda and stir to blend well. Pour into a small container lined with nonstick foil. Freeze until firm then break or chop into pieces. Store in the refrigerator or freezer for best results. It melts very quickly at room temperature.

It took me a couple tries to get just enough chocolate flavor without adding too many carbs and also to get the amount of Splenda right so that it didn't make it bitter. I think I've hit on just the right combination. The chocolate was too bitter without any sweetener and I added just enough Splenda to take the edge off without causing any additional bitterness. The white spots that you see on the chocolate are frost.
