PEANUT BUTTER NUTELLA AND PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE FUDGEY CONFECTION






(This looks a bit different - maybe it was after refrigerating)

PEANUT BUTTER NUTELLA

This is a pre-maintenance/maintenance  style treat because of the peanut butter I used.  I used Skippy Creamy Natural® peanut butter.  It has the same carbs as Smuckers® Natural, but it does have some sugar in it, whereas Smuckers does not.  I tried it with the latter peanut butter, but the consistency was wrong, although good.

1/cup Skippy® Natural Creamy (125 mL)
  Peanut Butter Spread
1/cup whipping cream (125 mL)
  (first start with 1/3 cup and work your way up)
1 tbsp cocoa, OR carob powder (15 mL)
1 tsp coconut oil (5 mL)
Zero-carb sweetener (sucralose or stevia), to taste

In food processor or blender, process peanut butter, whipping cream, cocoa, OR carob powder, coconut oil, and sweetener until smooth.  Refrigerate.

SMUCKERS® PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE FUDGEY CONFECTION

I tried making Peanut Butter Nutella with the Smucker’s Natural peanut butter, but the consistency was wrong, although good.  I added a couple of tablespoons of whey protein powder to it and it set up in the refrigerator after several hours.  That gave me the idea to freeze it.  This turned into a tasty fudgy treat.  Bonus that it is so easy to make!  Nice with a cup of tea in the morning or when you are hungry.  It definitely satiates the appetite.  I have other fudge recipes that I like way better, but this was still worth sharing as it is so no-fuss to make.  This is not quite fudge either...but anyway, see if you like it.  I didn't waste it, put it that way. ;)

1/cup Smuckers® Natural (125 mL)
  peanut butter
1/cup whipping cream (125 mL)
1 tbsp cocoa, OR carob powder (15 mL)
1 tsp coconut oil (5 mL)
Zero-carb sweetener, to taste
  protein powder

In food processor, process Smuckers® Natural peanut butter, whipping cream, cocoa, OR carob powder, coconut oil and zero-carb sweetener until smooth.  Add vanilla, OR chocolate whey protein powder; process. Spread in a small 4-inch (10 cm) square container and freeze until solid.  Allow to sit about 2 minutes on the counter top and enjoy!
