Low carb chocolate cake

The sweeteners you use in these low carb recipes are key! They make all the difference in the taste! In my experimentations on this food journey, I have discovered that Swerve Sweetener is the best!

I really think it makes a huge difference! It’s often expensive and hard to find in stores so I turned to my trusty Amazon to order it!
