Peanut Butter - Honey Fudge

Photobucket

1 cup natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until the chocolate chips are melted and blended in (about 30 seconds).

Spread fudge into an 8×8 inch pan. Refrigerate until solid. Cut into 1 inch squares.

{We love fudge. The problem is that Mike like's the old-fashioned grainy kind. ::snort:: I cheat. The verdict is out on this recipe. It's good, quick....but it was sort of chewy....and tasted a LOT like honey. I didn't have a stove and did it in the microwave, but I doubt that would make a difference. I didn't measure (as typical) and so I'm going to try this again and measure. I suspect I used more than 3/4 C honey. BTW - I used raw honey, organic peanut butter with one ingredient - Peanuts, and organic chocolate chips. So BACK OFF y'all, they're sort of healthy. ::snort:: How does Heather label her recipes? "HealthIER Fudge - that's what it is. ::snort::}

I found this recipe at Heavenly Homemakers. I am making a real effort to get favorite recipes HERE because several times my favorite recipes have gone away when blogs and websites disappear.

I saw this recipe the other day on Heavenly Homemakers as well. LOL
Yeah, healthier, that's it! =)
Of course, I wouldn't have measured either (that's just how I roll), so thanks for the heads up about that. Will definitely measure this one.

Yum! Exciting. What kind of honey did you use?? I bet if you use a lighter honey, it will not be as strong. LMK.

Sis:

The recipe sounds so good.....

I found out today at my nutrition class that a teaspoon of sugar is only 5grams of carbs....... YEAH! Also one slice of an ordinary sized watermellon is 240grams of carbs. I sure have something to tease Dad about. It will take a whole lot of SUGAR to equal his (and Mike'r or Josiah's) intake of watermellon...... bring on the tea when you all have watermellon. HA!

I HATE EATING SO MANY TIMES A DAY!!
but I'll succeed and in fact am succeeding.....
