Well Naturally are an established better-for-you brand creating products that allow an indulgent treat for those who would otherwise miss out. Their blocks and bars of chocolate have been well received with those looking for a healthier alternative. From feedback received they decided to formulate a cooking chocolate for those who like to whip up a decadent dessert in their own kitchen.
Well Naturally Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Melts were born, they are the sugar-free, naturally sweetened alternative to full-sugar cooking chocolate. These Melts are made with 70% cocoa and naturally sweetened with stevia, which is a plant-based sweetener with no calories and no impact on blood sugar levels. They are the key ingredient to many better-for-you decadent desserts. Try them in ganache, cakes, mousse and many more better for you treats.
The brand have put together a recipe booklet of delicious dishes utilising their new sugar-free chocolate melts created by chocolate enthusiast Tanya Bartolini and we are lucky enough to be able to share some of them with you.
