I want to make these too!!!!!!!!!! Like TODAY!!!!!!!! AAAAAHHHHH LOL


FUDGEY PEANUT BUTTER COCONUT SQUARES
These sweet fudge-like squares are very rich but quite low in carbs. They may be frozen or refrigerated. I prefer them frozen, but if using chocolate chips, they would be better refrigerated, as the chips would freeze too hard and one would not taste them so well.

1/3 cup granulated erythritol
1/4 cup whipping cream or evaporated milk
1 Splenda Quick Pack or equivalent to taste
(1 Splenda Quick Pack = 1 cup Splenda Granular)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (sugar free, salted is fine)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened, medium dessicated coconut
1 cup vanilla whey protein powder
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips, OR 70% Lindt Bar, chopped (optional)

In double boiler or in heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine erythritol, cream, Splenda and butter. Over medium heat, stir mixture until very hot and erythritol has dissolved. Stir in peanut butter until incorporated. Then add coconut, vanilla whey protein powder, chopped nuts of choice and chocolate chips, if using. Stir well and turn out into an 8 x 8-inch square glass dish. Freeze and later when set, refrigerate, if desired.

Nutritional Analysis: 25 squares, 1 square: (analysis with Splenda Quick Pack - liquid Splenda would also work here)
131.5 calories; 4.0 g protein; 11.7 g fat; 1.7 g carbs

Oh Boy...those sound good! Let us know how they come out!
I myself need to stay away from even fake sweets until I get back under control.
Meat Eggs veggies and maybe some berries is all I can do right now!!
Have a great Wednesday CeeCee!

Good luck! We will all be with you in spirit (because if we were actually with you, they'd find out what kind of wackos you hang with in cyber world!)

Do you think bacon bribes would work

Be confident! You got this! If not, they are idiots!

Good Morning Gals!!!

Ok... I think I did great on the interview!!!!!!! But it's for the state so it takes a while to hear back since the board has to review all jobs that come through. So the guy said like a MONTH!!! I was like WTH!! (in my head of course)

Amber- We are flying. Leaving Sat morning from Nashville coming back Tuesday. CAN'T FREAKING WAIT!!! And Yes Recruiters are AWESOME!

Thanks everybody for the well wishes. Reasons that I LOVE YALL!!!

Oh, And I had a cookie yesterday
