So here’s the story, because all good things have stories…
I have a friend who made me some nuc boxes and wouldn’t accept any money from me. I wanted to do something nice for him and I know that he is diabetic and loves sugar free treats. I went a-googling and found a sugar free peanut butter fudge recipe that sounded good so I tried it. I used Splenda as the sweetener and it turned out pretty good, though I don’t like to use artificial sweeteners for myself. Also, it didn’t taste or feel like fudge so that was disappointing. Still, I tweaked it a bit and added cocoa powder till it was just right.
It was so good that I wanted to see if I could make it with honey instead, and guess what? Ya… it’s even better. So you can thank me when you try this. It is sooooo good!!
Also, I found these cute ice cube trays at Walmart for 98¢ and thought I’d see how they work. Kinda cute if you ask me.
All Natural Honey and Peanut Butter Chocolates
- 1 c all natural peanut butter (peanuts and salt only)
- 1 c coconut oil
- 1/2 c local honey (of course)
- 1/4 c almond milk or other milk
- 1/4 c cocoa powder
- Warm peanut butter and coconut oil til the oil is mostly liquid.
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend till smooth
- Pour into molds or a lined pan (foil or parchment)
- Place in freezer or fridge till hard.
- Cut into squares or pop out of mold and enjoy.
That’s it! I tried creamy and chunky peanut butter and I like the chunky best. Both are good. Leave them in the freezer or fridge because they will melt otherwise, at least in Arizona.
