You ARE joking right?

Here is it....some guilt free fudge for you to enjoy over the holidays!

I discovered the cookbooks from Hungry Girl and they are very tasty and so fun!

Click here for the website for her books...there is a table of contents for all her recipes, pictures of each and the nutrition information for all.

Her website in general, you can subscribe to your email and she will send you all sorts of tips how to lower fat, swap foods and she provides recipes as well. My favorite is the email she sends with the hot new low fat products available (I am still looking for the new peppermint tootsie pops!).

I just cut to the chase and bought the two books. Ask Santa for a copy of each. Her newest one I have not have a chance to review yet.

As promised, your guilt free fudge...

Dreamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
from Hungry Girl

1-18.3 oz Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies Traditional Chewy Mix
2 cups canned pure pumpkin
2 Tbsp. reduced fat peanut butter, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine pumpkin with brownie mix in a large bowl. Mixture will be very thick.

Spray a square 9X9 baking pan (I lined mine with non stick foil) with non stick spray and pour in the mixture. Spoon peanut butter on top and use a knife to swirl it around the top of the batter. Bake for 35 minutes. Allow to cool.

Cover pan with foil and place in refrigerator for 2 hours. Cut into 36 squares.

POINTS® value 1*

I think these lil beauties got better with time. At first they just tasted like under done brownies....but over time they really tasted like fudge. Awesome!

Make these for yourself to enjoy and I bet if you put them out with the rest of your holiday goodies....they'd never know the difference!
