Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge: A Healthier Recipe

Low-fat chocolate peanut butter fudge.

Bite It: Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Hungry Girl has done it again. Armed with nothing but pumpkin, some brownie mix, and a VERY lowfat PB, she's whipped up a version of chocolate peanut butter fudge that's so low in calories and fat, it'll make you cry tears of joy. Here's the secret recipe...

Ingredients

2 cups canned pure pumpkin
1 box Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies Mix (the 18.3-oz. Family Size box)
2 tbsp. Better 'n Peanut Butter, room temperature

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine pumpkin with the brownie mix in a large bowl; stir until smooth (do not add anything else). Spray a small baking pan (6 x 6 inches or 8 x 4 inches work best -- no larger!) with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the mixture. Spoon 2 tbsp. of Better 'n Peanut Butter (room temperature) on top and use a knife to swirl peanut butter around. Cook for approximately 35 minutes. The batter will remain very thick and fudgy, and it should look undercooked. Remove from oven. Cover with aluminum foil and let cool in fridge for a couple of hours. Cut into 36 squares and serve.
