      You could make them any time you want. I had to change a few little things with the pinterest recipe to make it sugar-free friendly. But they definitely taste yummy.

  • that picture is PERFECT.

    • Kenz

      You should definitely try it out. It wasn’t hard at all 🙂

  • do you find a bitter after taste with the Truvia?

    • Kenz

      I didn’t. But that’s because i LOVE Truvia. I can’t have sugar, and I don’t really remember what it tastes like. I’m sure if you’re used to having sugar it would taste a little different. You could use whatever sugar/sweetener you want for that part. I know the taste of Truvia isn’t for everyone.

      • Thanks, I am looking to move to Steiva or a blend of such but have heard there is a bitter after taste…I am going to give the Truvia a try if they sell it here in Canada

        • CrowderSoup

          Stevia DOES have a bitter after-taste, Truvia does not 🙂

        • Gretchen

          Truvia is erythritol and stevia, I believe, which, IME, work beautifully together. Recipe looks great, Kenz–must try it!

          • Kenz

            Hmm interesting! I did not know that. I know I just like Truvia 🙂 Let me know how it works out for you!
