Recipe Notes

Swerve can take a little bit to dissolve and incorporate completely, so try tasting it at the end of the 30 minutes before you add more. If you don't mind an additional dirty dish and more mess, you can try grinding it into a fine powder before incorporating to help speed that along. If you'd rather not go through the additional trouble, you canĀ buy the "confectioners" version of the sweetener that already comes in powder form from Amazon.com hereĀ (affiliate).
