Let’s Talk About Fudge Baby!

So let’s face it – no matter how healthy I become, how “clean” I eat, I will always have a sweet tooth. The only solution I can find to this problem is to create goodies that fall within the lifestyle I have chosen. A couple weeks ago I had a craving for something and I came across a recipe for “Paleo Mint Chocolate Almond Butter Fudge“. Needless to say they had me at “mint chocolate”. I just happened to have everything on hand so I whipped up a batch, froze it and then portioned it all out and kept it in the freezer. I was successful at not eating the entire batch in a day – it actually lasted a couple weeks! Around that same time my first order of PB2 had just arrived and I was looking for things to create with it. I used this fudge recipe as a base and then subbed in my own ingredients to make “Peanut Butter Toffee Protein Fudge”!

Click the link in the first paragraph or the photo above and you’ll see the original recipe! Do it! Okay so now you’re wondering about that Peanute Butter Toffee Protein Fudge I mentioned?

Protein FudgeIngredients:

  • PB2, 12 Tbsp (reconstituted)
  • Nutiva / Tropical Tradition – Coconut Oil, Organic Extra Virgin / Mjlk, 5.33 tbsp
  • Pc Organics (Canada) – 100% Pure Maple Syrup, 8 tbsp
  • Dymatize – Elite Whey Protein Isolate – Butter Cream Toffee Mix, 1.46 scoop (about 1/2 cup)

Instructions:

  1. Measure out 12tbsp of PB2 and add 6tbsp of water to reconsitiute it
  2. Add in melted coconut oil & maple syrup
  3. Add in protein powder
  4. Mix well by hand or in a KitchenAid mixer
  5. Spread fudge mixture into brownie pan or Silicone Mold ( lined my pan with wax paper to make freezing and cutting easier)
  6. Place pan/mold into freezer and freeze for 24-48hrs (yes that long!)
  7. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 16 servings. Wrap each in plastic wrap and place back in freezer
  8. Keep frozen – it melts quickly.

I left mine in the freezer for a few days before trying it. It takes WAY longer than the Chocolate Mint version to set-up, but it’s worth it!
