  • 2/3 cup Swerve, Confectioners
  • 3½ tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1½ cups whole milk

  • ½ tsp xanthan gum


  1. In a medium size bowl, mix the Swerve and cocoa powder together until there are no lumps.
  2. Add the milk to dry ingredients. Stir to combine.
  3. In large sauté pan or black iron skillet, melt butter. Add the milk mixture and cook on medium heat, stirring every two minutes for about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove pan from heat and sprinkle xanthan gum on top of chocolate mixture. Whisk into chocolate mixture aggressively. Set aside for 10 minutes and let thicken.
