Have you eaten any yet? How is the texture? The recipe sounds good. How does it taste? I have had mixed results baking with whey protein.

I've never had problems baking with whey protein in my bake mixes, but it really depends on the kind you buy. Any whey that is simply made from concentrates is horrible.

Babsy, you surprise me! You are on your way to making your very own, unique treats - starting out with your favorite recipe. You made me smile. Your cookies sound nice - tell us what they're like. Were they sweet enough?

well, I dont think I could invent my own. I could not have done it without your recipe. They are very good. I like the texture like russian teacakes. Taste like it too. I think they are perfectly sweet. I guess I dont really need it too sweet.

Thanks, guys! So happy you like this recipe, Pam. You don't find it puts on weight eating that much of it?

No, Jennifer, not at all. Although, I'm not trying to lose weight, just maintaining. I can eat 5 or 6 pieces daily. I'm totally addicted to these. They're so filling that I don't tend to eat as much.

I will put my chocolate chips on after I have turned them out into the pan. I did it while it was really hot in the pan and they all melted. Still CRAZY GOOD, though!!

Love this recipe, thanks Jennifer, you are DA BOMB!!

Thank you, Beeb. Caralyn, that sounds nice. Let me know if you like it. I've just bought some more coconut to make this again one of these days.

I made this yesterday, mine came out nothing like the pictures and they're not fudgey at all, more like peanut brittle. But VERY VERY good, great flavor and I'll definitely make these again.

Julie, that is so weird - how did you manage that result? Curious me. Anyone have any ideas?

Hmm, mine have never turned out like that, either. Sometimes they come out a little dry, so I cut back on the coconut.

Poor Julie. We're not trying to be too nosey, I hope - just trying to figure it out. Personally to me - peanut brittle - sounds brilliant!

Ok I did another batch, it's not as brittle as the first one, still really not fudge, the pieces shatter when I cut them (well, some of them, not all), it was very hard to cut. I do like this texture though. I made sure to follow the recipe exactly. The only thing that I didn't follow was that I didn't use a bain-marie, and I didn't use a thick bottomed saucepan, just a regular one. Also I allowed the mixture to boil, not sure if I was supposed to do that or not. Anyways, I do like it like this so I'm not worried

Thanks, Jeri.

Gosh, Julie, you do get an amazing result. I'm thinking the boiling is what does it.

Julie, when you stirred in the whey protein, was your mixture still on the hot plate? That might explain things. Some whey proteins might react with those ingredients and heat. Boy, what a puzzle!

I stirred in the protein powder still on the hot plate (turned off but it was still hot), I definitely remember doing that yesterday, not sure about the first time though.

This is the protein powder I used by the way:
Proteins+

Just wanted to BUMP because this recipe of Jennifer's is so, so good!!! I make it weekly. I leave out the chocolate and drop from a spoon onto waxed paper. These remind me so much of a high carb Peanut Butter Cluster recipe I've made in the past made with oatmeal. Thanks, Jennifer!

This happened to me, too. Jennifer, are you adding the chocolate chips after the mix has cooled? It seems that way because I have made this again, exactly as written and again the chocolate chips melted into the mix as they did the first time. It looked nothing like yours at all, very tasty, but you could not see the chips anymore as you do in your recipe pic.

Thanks

Use half the butter in the recipe and about choc chips

Linda, I think you are right. I added the chocolate chips when the mixture was quite a bit cooler and already in the pan - I'm sorry I goofed on that. I made this recipe only once if I recall and then again today. I'm thinking I must have used loaf pans because the fudge is way thicker in that pic than when I made it today in an 8 x 8" pan. I think I like it thinner actually. I cut them into very attractive squares which I'll serve on Sunday for tea along with other goodies.

Anyway - really yummy recipe - but not a perfect recipe. I think one can cut the butter by half because my butter separated out today and I'm not sure why - some ingredient is different. I think I used evap milk last time and this time milk (cream is horribly expensive here) but surely that won't make a difference? Maybe my coconut was less absorbent - I think I'm using a different brand. In any case, I don't think it would hurt to use only 1/4 cup butter (fewer calories!).
