I was reading a post here that had a peanut butter cup recipe using the no sugar added fudgicles. I can't get them where I am at the moment, so I tried something else instead. I get the Jello brand no sugar added chocolate pudding, which is sold in the cold section by the yogurt and such, instead. I put into a mug a tablespoon of natural peanut butter (Kraft brand is what i use, it has only peanuts, but you can use any brand that contains just peanuts and salt). I put a half of a sweetener in mine and mix it with the peanut butter just because i didn't find it sweet enough without the sweetener. Then i add the little serving of Jello pudding and mix, mix, mix with my spoon until it's all incorporated well. It is so thick and so rich and delicious. It's mousse-like almost. I would imagine adding some permitted whipped topping would make it even more mousse-like as well, but I haven't done that yet. Give it a try, it's decadent. For me, it doesn't cause cravings. In fact, it's so rich, I don't want another thing to eat afterwards, so it's good for my night time snacking issues. Have fun!

Have you ever heard of PB2?

It should be noted, though, that the sugar-free jello pudding is not allowed on Phase I, whereas the peanut butter cup recipe as written IS Phase I appropriate.
