This recipe uses canned pumpkin and prepared brownie mix for an easy tasty treat that works with your diet. While not exactly like fudge, it is chocolately and peanut buttery and you get a very good size piece in one serving! Must be eaten with a fork - messy! The pumpkin flavor does come through some, so beware if you aren't a pumpkin fan. I make this recipe with a Betty Crocker Low Fat brownie mix.

Recipe Ingredients for Peanut Butter Fudge

15 ounce pumpkin puree
20 1/2 ounce low-fat brownie mix (Betty Crocker makes a good one)
2 tablespoons peanut butter

Recipe Directions for Peanut Butter Fudge

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Spray a very small baking dish, either 8" x 4" for thick fudge or 8" x 8" for thinner fudge.

  3. Mix pumpkin and brownie mix until smooth; batter will be thick.

  4. Pour into prepared baking dish.

  5. Drop peanut butter in little drops on top and swirl with knife; don't get too much in one area or oil from the peanut butter will pool.

  6. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes (approximately 30 minutes for an 8" x 4" pan and about 40 minutes for an 8" x 8" pan). It should look undercooked, thick and fudgy; glossy on the inside (don't let edges get crusty).

  7. Remove from oven; cover with foil; cool in fridge for several hours. Let cool on the counter a little while so your baking dish doesn't shatter!

  8. Cut into 18 pieces, 3x6.
