So, I know there's a huge debate over artificial sweetners, but some of us are "sugar impaired". However, if anyone knows of any natural sweetners that have a low glycemic index, I'm all ears! Feel free to substitute regular granulated sugar and I'll include those substitutions in my recipe. Please note that the nutritional information at the bottom of the recipe is based on the "Splenda" version.
Chocolate Dunk Cookies with Splenda
1/4 tsp. salt
4 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, divided
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) margarine, softened
1/4 cup SLENDA brown sugar, OR 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated (same amount for regular sugar)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. thawed COOL WHIP Sugar Free Whipped Topping
1 tsp. warm water
BEAT margarine, brown sugar and SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chopped chocolate. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
BAKE 11 to 12 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
MELT remaining chocolate squares as directed on package. Stir in COOL WHIP and water. Dip half of each cookie in chocolate; let stand until firm.
