Peanut Butter Fudge

Here's another one I haven't tried yet, but it sounds too good to pass up.  And if I have it posted here, I'll be able to find it easily when I have time to make it.  So really, this is a selfish post.  Very, very selfish.

NOT my recipe, I'm reposting it from a keto forum that reposted it from another keto forum.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup natural peanut butter, low salt

 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
2/3 cup whey protein powder, vanilla flavor, 2 scoops

Melt the butter and peanut butter together in the microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes; whisk well. Whisk in the cream cheese until well blended and smooth. Whisk in the Splenda then the whey protein powder and blend well. Line a 7 x 5" baking dish with wax paper or nonstick foil. Spread the fudge mixture in the pan and chill or freeze until set. Cut into 20 squares. Store in the refrigerator or freeze.

Makes 20 pieces

The link is here, if you want to see pictures.  I still haven't gotten that fancy yet.  Maybe in the winter, when I'm not trying to squeeze 40 hours of work into every day.

  1. OK, I just finished making this. And it is EXCELLENT. I can't wait to taste it when it's chilled, but even the warm batter tastes amazing. Definitely need to save it for a treat; lots of chemicals in this one, between the Splenda and the whey powder. But it should help with those sweet cravings!
