Holiday Sweets With Truvia®

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Truvia® Natural Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

With all the holiday cookies, candies and desserts headed our way, it's nice to know there is a way to lighten things up a bit.

Truvia® Baking Blend is designed for easy, at home baking and is a blend of natural sweetner and sugar. It provides sugar like taste in recipes, but with 75% fewer calories and twice the amount of sweetness than sugar. Baked goods make with Truvia® Baking Blend will have sugar-like texture, moistness and will brown just like those made with actual sugar.
One 1.5 pound bag of Truvia® Baking Blend (Closable with an easy to pour spout) has equivalent sweetness to 3 pounds of sugar, approximately 7 cups- enough to make 13 pies, 9 batches of cookies or 6 batches of brownies. Now those numbers sound like the holidays to me!!
And it's not just for baked goods! Look at this delicious dessert fondue that would be perfect for a holiday party or even New Year's Eve! So much fun for your guests to choose their "dippers" and enjoy a rich chocolate dessert.

Chocolate Fondue
23 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
14 tsp salt
1 cup skim milk
4 Tbsp Truvia® natural sweetener spoonable*
12 tsp vanilla extract 

Possible Dippers
Pound Cake
Graham Crackers

Place cocoa powder, salt, milk and sweetner in heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. Whisk in vanilla and transfer to fondue pot. Serve warm with various dippers.
