Fudge Anyone?

As promised here is your sweet treat Littliest and I Made for y'all yesterday! Don't worry about breaking your New Years resolution to eat healthier. We got the recipe from my Hungry Girl book. I have made this Dreamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge before and it is super yummy and that is coming from somebody who really is not a huge chocolate fan or fudge fan at all!

What ya need is a box of Better Crocker Fudge Brownies Original, two cups of pumpkin, and some reduced fat peanut butter. Really you can not even tell the peanut butter is reduced fat once the treat is made. I promise ya can't!

Mix the brownie mix and pumpkin in a bowl. This is where I am missing our old kitchen island that had outlets in it. DO NOT add the ingredients on the brownie box! All you need is the brownie mix itself and the pumpkin. 

It says to place in a 9X9 pan but all I had was an 8X11 so improvise too if ya must.

Next you are suppose to add 2 tsp of peanut butter or a bit more ;). Here is my little secret that is not in the book. Take your peanut butter and melt it in the microwave for abt 20 seconds. This makes life soooo much easier!

Then pour your dreamy peanut butter on top.

Take a kabob stick or a tooth pick and then drag it up and down or back and fourth.

This is the design you will achieve. I actually drag mine across and up and down to better disperse the peanut butter and because I think it just  makes for a prettier design.

Next set your 350 degree preheated oven to 35 minutes. Of course this all depends on your oven how long to leave it in there. I ended up pulling it out 5 minutes early. You so do not want it to get crispy!

Baking away!

While we are waiting here is pic of the island in normal day light. 

Times up and they are done, well almost. Let cool and then cover and stick in the fridge for approx 2 hours or more.

When you finally can not stand it anymore or when you think you can not take your child asking one more time if they are ready yet pull it out of the fridge and cut them puppies up!

Do they look close to the pic?

Yep, I think so!

Hope y'all enjoy!

If ya want the recipe for yourself here it is. You can tweak it to your liking. Sometimes I put in a little more pumpkin and sometimes I add some cinnamon.
