Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

We had a small party this weekend and I made these brownies as a lower carb dessert. They were awesome! Even the non-LCers loved them.

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Cookies Cookies - Bar
Low Carb Quick & Easy

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Brownie Base:
12 tbsp butter
4 oz unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup Swerve Sweetener or other erythritol
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
5 large eggs
Peanut Butter Fudge:
3/4 cup peanut butter
6 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup to 1 cup powered Swerve Sweetener -- sifted
Chocolate Drizzle:
1 ounce high % cacao chocolate

Yield: 36 bite-sized brownies Serving Size: 2 brownies
Brownies: Preheat oven to 325F and line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper with overhanging edges for easier brownie removal. Melt butter, chocolate and cocoa powder together in a medium saucepan, stirring until smooth. Stir in erythritol and vanilla extract. Let cool 5 minutes. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Spread mixture in prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes, or until just barely set and middle is still not quite cooked. Watch them carefully as they can get quite dry if overdone. The edges will rise a little higher but should recede as they cool. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Peanut Butter Fudge: In a smal saucepan over medium heat, melt together peanut butter and butter. Stir in vanilla and salt. Stir in powdered erythritol a little at a time until the mixture thickens to a spreadable consistency. Spread over cooled brownies and refrigerate 1 hour, until set. Chocolate Drizzle: In a small, microwavable safe bowl, melt chocolate by heating in microwave in 30 second increments. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over peanut butter fudge. Let set at least 10 minutes. Lift brownies out by edges of parchment. Cut into 1-inch squares. Notes Serves 18. Each serving has 5 g of carbs and 2 g of fiber. Total NET CARBS = 3 g.

The brownies were amazing! I've tried her brownies before and wasn't thrilled, but must have cooked them too long. They were hard and crunchy - not in a good way. This time, I paid attention to the notation about "until just barely set and middle is still not quite cooked" and they were perfect.

So I've been trying to find out what people think of swerve. Is that what you used?

I just change sweetners if I can. The recipe looks really good.

I use powdered swerve anytime I need that type of sweetener (powdered) in a recipe. So, I did use it for the peanut butter fudge. For the brownies, I used Truvia just because I had some on hand. Usually I use a combo of erythritol and stevia glycerite.
I like swerve, it's just so darn expensive.

I can attest that they are awesome. I haven't done much baking the last few months, but I made the PB brownies recently for an upcoming event, and they were really fabulous. DH and I have been LCIng for years, and we love Carolyn's recipes. He said it was possibly the best LC dessert I've made yet. THe man adores PB and choc together, however, so he's a little biased.

You could just use erythritol if you wanted Esther. I'm not sure how well other sweeteners such as Splenda would sweeten the brownie part, Splenda usually just makes chocolate taste bitter. You could try combining sweeteners. But for the peanut butter part you will need a powdered sweetener to get it to the right consistency.
