      Wonder if I could make this using Splenda to make it sugar free?? My DH is diabetic and I’m allergic to aspertian so we make most desserts with fruit concentrate and or splenda.

      It would be worth a try! Imagine! If it works, your hubbie could have root beer & not have to worry about the sugar!

      🙂 Although, you’d want to check the root beer concentrate. It may be packed with sugar too.
