TOFFEE FUDGE





TOFFEE FUDGE

Difficult to describe this amazing confection.  It is sweet, fudge-like and it tastes like toffee and has a chewy consistency as well, just like toffee, but at the same time it is also somewhat like fudge.  Very addictive!  Not often one finds a candy that also has plenty of protein!  I don’t feel guilty eating this confection, even although I tend to overdo it.  Still, it doesn’t make me gain weight, which is good.

2 oz unsweetened carob chips, OR (60 g)
1 tbsp light olive oil (15 mL)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (125 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 1 cup (250 mL)
  sugar
11/4 cups Vanilla Whey Protein (300 mL)
  (GNC French Vanilla Cream, sugarless)
1 cup whole milk powder, OR (250 mL)
1/4 cup powdered erythritol, OR (60 mL)
1/4 cup whipping cream, OR heavy cream (60 mL)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
1/4 tsp butterscotch, OR caramel extract** (1 mL)
  (optional)

In double boiler combine carob chips, OR sugar-free chocolate chips and olive oil.  Melt the carob, OR chocolate chips over medium heat.

Meanwhile in food processor, process, butter, liquid sweetener, vanilla whey protein powder, whole milk powder, OR coconut milk powder, erythritol, OR coffee sweetener, whipping cream and water; process.  Add melted carob, OR chocolate chips; process.  Add Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR Keto Bake Mix; process.  Place mixture in 9-inch (23 cm) square glass dish.  Press evenly into dish using plastic wrap or back of a large spoon.  Using a paper towel, mop up any excess grease.  Freeze half an hour and refrigerate or simply refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.  Keep refrigerated.

Helpful Hints: *I have not tested this recipe with coconut milk powder or heavy cream powder (probably be even better!  I would imagine that it would work.  It is perfect with whole milk powder, however, you may be doing stricter low-carbing. **I didn’t add any extracts, however, I can imagine those extracts would complement this confection very well.
