  • 1 square of unsweetened baking chocolate
  • pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Place the unsweetened chocolate into a microwave safe cup or bowl and add the cream. Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds and stir. Continue to microwave for 20 to 30 second periods, stirring between each time, until the chocolate has melted.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, almond milk, vanilla extract, Splenda and salt.
  4. Slowly add the melted chocolate/cream mixture to the egg mixture whisking while it is being added. Continue to whisk so the chocolate mixture is well blended into the eggs. You may notice small bits of chocolate in the finished mixture and that is alright.
