Creamy Freezer Fudge
CREAMY FREEZER FUDGE
This creamy-smooth, chewy fudge with a subtle peanut butter and honey flavor is very sweet (like fudge) and thus rather addictive for those with a sweet tooth. Ian and I had a friendly race to the freezer for the last few blocks, which we then shared.

3 tbsp melted butter (45 mL)
Liquid sweetener to equal 1/2 cup sugar (125 mL)
3 tbsp water (45 mL)
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter (30 mL)
1 tbsp honey, OR sugar-free honey* (15 mL)
1/4 cup whole milk powder (or skim) (60 mL)
1/4 cup powdered erythritol, OR Steviva Blend® (60 mL)
3 tbsp vanilla whey protein powder (45 mL)
1/2 tsp cornstarch (2 mL)
4 oz cocoa butter, melted (120 g)
Line an 8 x 4 x 3-inch (1.5 L) loaf pan with parchment paper (spray pan with nonstick cooking spray first). In blender, combine melted butter, Liquid sweetener, water, peanut butter, honey, OR sugar-free honey, whole milk powder, powdered erythritol, OR Steviva Blend®, vanilla whey protein and cornstarch. Blend until smooth. In deep microwave-safe bowl, place cocoa butter. Microwave 4 to 5 minutes, or until melted.
Use oven mitts to retrieve bowl from microwave oven after a couple of minutes to allow it to cool a bit and be extremely careful. Add contents of blender to cocoa butter and using a whisk, whisk it all in until creamy, smooth and thick. Pour into prepared loaf pan and freeze for 1 hour. Remove and score into 36 small squares. Freeze again.
Helpful Hint: *Instead of honey, you can use sugar-free maple pancake syrup.
