A super-easy fudgey confection that is reminiscent of Reese’s pieces. You will need cocoa butter, fortunately available at Netrition. It is great to have on hand for several of my candy recipes.

Text Box: Yield:  16 servings
1 serving
125.8 calories
2.1 g protein
10.1 g fat
1.6 g carbs1 cup chocolate chips,   (250 mL)
2 oz cocoa butter (60 g)
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (125 mL)
Sweetener to equal 1 cup (250 mL)
  SPLENDA® Granular

In a double boiler or heavy-bottomed pan, combine chocolate chips and cocoa butter.  Stir occasionally over medium heat until molten.  Stir in peanut butter until well mixed.  Pour into two nonstick mini loaf pans.  Freeze until solid, then refrigerate.  Cut into 8 squares per pan.

Helpful Hints: You may use 6 oz Lindt chocolate (need 2 bars) or unsweetened baking chocolate (6 squares) - adjust sweetener to taste once the peanut butter has been incorporated. If using these options, use some powdered erythritol as well as, say, liquid Splenda, to raise the sweetness level sufficiently.

I have never been able to find cocoa butter locally. I will have to check out Netrition as a source when I place my next order there.

I used to be able to get it in a little town near Vernon, British Columbia. It was actually a place that made bulk ingredients for all kinds of companies.

Oh my goodness, what a feast for the eyes!
How can anyone say that we suffer on a low carb diet?
