Hilarious, right? I’ve given that card more than once to people for their birthday. And today might not be your birthday, but I hope you like Chocolate Fudge Pies!
I know I wrote a post last week with a few variations of Chocolate Covered Katie’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.
I don’t think it’s a serious problem yet, but since my “Oh Fudge” post I’ve been loving this fudge a little too much. I had to find a way to cut the calories and fat down a bit. Chocolate Covered Katie”s fudge is to die for, but if you’re like me, you’ll want to eat the entire pie in one sitting.
I came up with a solution.
I subbed in some unsweetened applesauce and came up with a lighter version that is almost just as amazing and about 190 calories less.
Recipe makes one big pie- serves one STUFT mama or maybe 2 “normal” eaters
1/2 of a ripe banana
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 tablespoon nut butter
pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together in blender or food processor. (I used the Magic Bullet if the boys were awake and mixed by hand if it was nap time.)
Pour into freezable container. Cover and freeze for a couple hours.
Admire your creation (finger smudge and all).
Cut into pieces (if desired).
Eat it alone.
Or top it with some Peanut Butter Coco Cream.
This can also be eaten as a cold pudding or used as a frosting when chilled in the refrigerator .
Or even cut up into little fudge nuggets.
And eaten with a teeny tiny fork.
Today’s version had Naturally More as the nut butter of choice.
But, feel free to experiment with different nut butters.
(I’ve tried them all and they’re all fabulous.)
The entire fudge pie has about 300 calories. It’s a good thing because I eat the whole pie at once.
It actually looked a little something like this after the photo shoot today.
And I ate that thing right up. Mmmm…
Here are some shots from my poor attempt for pictures of this yesterday.
Do you like that chocolate on the side of my mouth? Or the phone in my sports bra? Just NOT okay Kristin.
And……. not okay that I’m still up right now. Time to hit the sack. No more vegging on the couch.
