Could you use like Splenda instead of sugar??????

@Sarah The powdered sugar is used for dusting the top. You could leave it off if you prefer.

Recipe calls for 3/4 cups of sugar, to blend with the cocoa, not just 10X sugar for the top. You might be able to sub with Splenda, but you might want to try one of those "light" sugar/stevia blends first...?
