Instant Peanut Butter Fudge Truffles
One night I was mixing things up like a mad scientist, and similar to that famous chance meeting of peanut butter and chocolate I hit upon the secret to Instant Fudge!!! I was trying to make a quick late night snack that would duplicate the taste of a peanut butter cheesecake. What happened next was a complete surprise as the mixture instantly thickened up like fudge!

 

Recipe by:
Category: desserts
Serves: 4
 
Prep time: 
Total time: 

Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons all natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese (may use sour cream, heavy cream, half and half or unsweetened soy milk)
  • 5 packets Splenda brand sugar substitute
  • 1 teaspoon no sugar vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (for coating)
  • 1 packet Splenda sugar substitute (for coating)
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour (for coating)
  • 1 packet Splenda sugar substitute (for coating)

Instructions
  1. Add the peanut butter, ricotta and sugar substitute and vanilla to a bowl and mix vigorously with a fork for only a minute or so until the mixture thickens considerably and looks like dough.
  2. Using 2 small bowls, mix together the cocoa powder and sugar substitute in one and the almond flour and sugar substitute in the other.
  3. Next use your hands to roll out marble size pieces of the mixture and then toss them in the coating of your choice and serve!

Helpful Tip
Optional Classic Fudge Presentation: Flatten the mixture onto a dish until it is a ½ inch thick layer and cut with a sharp knife into small squares. (Note: Slight chilling will make this instant fudge even more solid, but we can never wait!)
