Notes

Original recipe used ¼ cup erythritol plus ⅛ teaspoon stevia extract powder as granular sweetener blends weren't readily available.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator and heat up in the microwave or on the stove. 
Water, almond milk, or cream can be stirred in a little at a time to thin out the sauce.
