Recipe Notes

Swerve (and honestly erythritol blends of all kinds) have a reputation for being a little bit resistant to dissolving, which is why I call for the Confectioners-Style version of the sweetener here. This is not an application where it will be surrounded by a lot of liquid, so the fine powder will help things along. If you are using granular or generic erythritol, you might want to consider grinding it up more finely in a spice grinder.
