Sweeten Without The Calories Naturally With NECTRESSE Sweetener

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NECTRESSE™Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have always been a loyal customer of Splenda, because I'm a type II Diabetic and it's one of the few things I can use that will not spike my blood sugar. I appreciate the fact that Splendra strives to create sweeteners that fit the tastes and appeals of everyone. So when Spenda released NECTRESSE™Sweetener and I was offered the chance to try it I hopped on the opportunity.
NECTRESSE is the only No calorie all natural sweetener on the market. Derived from Monk Fruit, a green melon fruit from Asia that has been grown in family orchards for centuries, allows it to be 140 times more sweeter than sugar, all while maintaining it's all natural quality. NECTRESSE is available in single serve packets or an easy to hold canister and is available in grocery, drug, and superstores around the country or can be purchased online. NECTRESSE can be used in place of sugar in all recipes types that call for sugar as an ingredient, this even includes baked good.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

While attending #CrockpotWed Twitter Party earlier I was asked for the recipe for a favorite dip here in the Home of Chicken Wings!

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

16  oz of cream cheese - softened
8 oz of Franks Hot Sauce or any Hot/Wing Sauce of your choosing (we love Franks)
3/4 cup of chopped celery
2 cups of cooked chicken breast shredded
2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
16 oz of Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing

Poach Chicken in water either on stove or in a crock pot. Remove from water when cooked through and let cool slightly. Meanwhile, pre-heat oven at 350 degrees. Shred chicken - I used two forks and just pull it all apart. Combine cream cheese, celery, and hot sauce and put into microwave at 1 minute increments until cream cheese is soft and easy to stir. Fold in chicken, blue cheese, and cheddar cheese until mixture is well mixed together.  Put into oven at 350 for 30 minutes. You could also put this mixture into a crock pot and let it cook for a few hours. Those mini pots work wonders for making this dip and warming it up.

Tips - I add the hot sauce a little at a time. You can always add more, but can never take away. I add to my liking. Some like their's hot hot some like it medium hot, it all depends on  your heat preference. I also only use half of the blue cheese but have used ranch dressing successfully as well. If you like a lot of chicken you can add more chicken. I've also used the canned chicken breast, it didn't taste as well as with fresh, but I didn't hear any complaints!
