Trim Healthy Mamas has a recipe for Skinny Chocolate that resembles a recipe my friend Misty shared with me. I have not tried the recipe proportions from THM, but I have tried this recipe and it is a hit! My husband absolutely loves it and will often be heard saying,
“Could you whip up some of that chocolate stuff?”
So, here’s the recipe for “that chocolate stuff”, also known a…
Coconut Peanut Butter Fudge
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup cocoa powder
Stevia to taste (I use NuStevia – more on this below)
Mix all ingredients until smooth. (If you want it really smooth, melt your coconut oil first. We’re too lazy to take the time to do that and besides, we don’t mind the tiny bits of coconut oil).
Spoon onto a wax-paper lined plate and smooth to edges. Pop in the refrigerator for a bit. Break apart and enjoy!
A couple of notes on ingredients:
Peanut Butter – I’ve used both natural and regular ole Aldi peanut butter. Yes, I know regular peanut butter has sugar in it. Don’t hold it against me.
Stevia – You want the NuStevia Pure. A little bit goes a long way.
And yes, I am fully aware of the controversy surrounding stevia. I use it in moderation because frankly, of all the sweeteners out there, it is the only one I have ever found (natural or not) that doesn’t make me crave even more sweet stuff. Serene and Pearl did a lot of research on stevia and they go over their findings in the book. In the end, you have to decide for yourself. My choice is a little bit here and there to keep any sugar cravings at bay.
