Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Here's the Dish

On the Seventh Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me… Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 45-50 minutes.


Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate for 60 seconds, or until melted. Add the peanut butter to the melted chocolate, and stir together. Next, add the cream cheese, and place the chocolate mixture back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until the mixture is creamy and smooth, (skip this step if using Greek yogurt). 


Add the sweetener and cocoa powder, and mix with a spatula until everything is well combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan, and smooth out the top with a spatula. Place the fudge in your freezer for 15-20 minutes, or until chilled.


When fudge is chilled, remove it from your loaf pan and place it on a cutting board or plate. Cut fudge into 12 squares, and cut each of those squares in half, to make 24 squares total.


To make the peanut butter drizzle, place the peanut butter in a small microwave safe dish, and microwave for 30 seconds. Take a fork and drizzle the melted peanut butter over the fudge. Place fudge back in the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until peanut butter drizzle firms up. Keep fudge refrigerated until ready to serve, or wrap up for a gift!


2(Individually wrapped, 1 oz) squares semi sweet baking chocolate (for a total of 2 oz of chocolate)
1/4 cup Creamy peanut butter
1(8oz) package 1/3 less fat cream cheese (or 1 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt)
2 tbsUnsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cupBaking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1
1 1/2 tbs Peanut butter (for drizzle)

1 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 8-12, or adjust according to taste.

Katie, this looks delicious! I love your blog… I’m a college student at SPU and am passionate about the same things as you! I know that whenever I come to your blog, I’ll be encouraged. And you inspire me in my musings of having a food blog after I’m done with school. Keep up the good work. :)

Katie – what’s your thoughts on using Better’n Peanut Butter instead of regular creamy PB? Will it melt the same way regular PB does?

I made this and it was amazing, Katie, is there a way to incorporate marshmallow fluff in this recipe to make rocky road fudge?

Anybody tried substituting carob powder for the semi sweet chocolate? Using carob powder, fitnutz and stevia brings the calorie count down to guilt free or lower !

I will give it a try today and share the results.

stevia in the fudge is really depending on your taste and the brand of stevia you use. i would suggest starting at 1 tsp and go from there! :)

Katie Farrell said:

for this recipe i used Ideal brand sweetener, its a natural sweetner that measures out the same as sugar, but is 99% natural, but splenda or stevia would work, for stevia i would start at a tsp and go from there depending on your taste! :)
