Then combine the splenda and envelope of knox gelatin with 1/4 boiling water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved and then pour gelatin mixture into the peanut cream cheese mixture.

Here is the info for the fudge per serving:

So we have a reduction of 86 calories per piece. Let's keep in mind how small serving sizes really are. I usually like to have more than one. So, calories can add up quickly. There is a reduction of 6.1 grams of fat, the protein almost remains the same (within half a gram...this is a good thing), the carbs are reduced by 13.6 grams, and the sugars are reduced by 13.9.

And my version of PB fudge DOES taste good, and it's not because my tastebuds have adjusted to eating lighter fare. Gave the boss some to try and it went over very well. The only suggestion was to add peanuts. I think that would be even more delicious, actually!

Party on... :) Have a great weekend, everyone!
