1 tsp (5 mL) salt

1 1/2 cup (375 mL) SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated

1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla

6 cinnamon sticks, plus additional for garnish

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) cornstarch

1 cup (250 mL) water

1/2 cup (125 mL) pre-melted unsweetened chocolate

Combine the coconut milk, salt, 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) of SPLENDA® Granulated, vanilla, and cinnamon sticks in a 4-6 L pan and simmer for 10 minutes.
