Notes:

Make sure you use xylitol that is derived from Birch trees or another non-GMO source.

I used half sugar, half liquid stevia. This is optional.  If you do not use stevia, you will need to add another 1/4 – 1/2 cup of xylitol or sweetener.  This will of course change the nutritional info below.
