Hi!

PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE

Honestly, do I even need to write anything other than the title? I mean seriously, just look at those PB & awesome bombs! Do you like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? Of course you do! This shiz is the real deal. Well, if by real deal you think I mean this fudge is made with real Reese's PB Cups, then no, it's actually not the real deal. What I mean by real deal is that these magical squares taste like the inside of a Reese's Cup without having any Reese's Cups in them. I feel like I just said the word Reese's more times in a few sentences than maybe anyone in existence ever has. It's not a bad thing, just an observation. But I digress. 

This is a healthier version of fudge and it won't throw you off your diet (well, you can't eat the entire effing pan). I could go on and on about how delicious this stuff is, but we all know what the inside of a Reese's Cup taste like so I'm gonna keep this simple.

Here's the dealio... 

Make this shit. Like now.

PEANUT BUTTER CUP FUDGE

Makes about 18 pieces.

{This article contains affiliate links. See bottom of page for details.}

WHATCHU NEED:

  • 1c Nut Butter (I used all natural PB)
  • 1/3c Pure Maple Syrup (not the processed crap)
  • 1/4c Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2tsp Pure Vanilla Extract (not imitation chemicals)
  • 1 TBS Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/4c Chopped Pecans (or preferred nut)
  • 18 (approx.) Whole Pecans (or preferred nut)

WHATCHU DO:

1. In blender, mix nut butter, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.

2. Fold in chopped pecans.

3. Line 8 x 8 pan with parchment OR use a silicone mold (as shown in pics). I love my square silicone mold! It's the perfect bite-size.

TIP:

 It's not necessary, but if you use silicon, spray with an organic cooking spray to ensure easy pop out. Instead of an aerosol spray, I use an olive oil spray pump.

4. If using an 8 x 8 pan, place your whole pecans in the middle of your imaginary squares by eyeballing it. If you're using a mold, simply plop the pecan in the middle of the square.

5. Freeze for 2-3 hours.

That's it! Eat and enjoy!

TIP:

Store leftovers in fridge. The longer it sits out, the softer it will become.

*Affiliate Disclaimer: Half of Gabby has recently become an Amazon Affiliate. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires all affiliates to put a disclaimer on their website/blog. Most disclaimers are so filled with confusing lingo that you don’t even understand what they're saying. I’m going to break it down for you the way I'd want it to be broken down for me. I’m not a fan of complicated and unclear regulation jargon. So here’s the dealio. Half of Gabby takes up a tremendous amount of my time. But because I love it so much, I really want to continue dedicating my time to it. For six years now, I have been providing product links to products that I use and love and in turn recommend them to my readers. These products have helped me maintain a healthy lifestyle and/or improve my family life. I have helped sell countless products for six years and have never received any commissions… Until now. As of September 15, 2016, I will be providing links just as I've always done, but now will receive a very small commission if you purchase an item through the affiliate link that I provide. An affiliate link is simply a link that brings you to a place where you can buy that product. I will not earn a commission by you simply clicking on the link, you must actually purchase the item(s) within 24 hours of putting it in your Amazon cart. Prices are exactly the same for you if you purchase through an affiliate link on Half of Gabby. You will NOT pay more by clicking through the link. My promise to you is that I will never recommend a product that I don’t fully 100% believe in and/or use myself and recommend to close friends and family. This will allow me to continue working hard on Half of Gabby without it using up time that I need to otherwise dedicate to contributing to my household. I'm happy to be able to continue my blog and to continue talking with, meeting, and helping people all over the world with their health journeys!
