PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE FUDGE (GF)
PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE FUDGE
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.
1 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)
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.
