Low Carb Keto Peanut Butter Fudge
Have you ever seen Ok Go's Rube Goldberg machine video? (below)
It has to be one of the coolest things on the Internet. (And the Internet is full of cool things.)
Also cool, is this recipe for peanut butter fudge that I found.
I'm not a fudge person per se, but I saw this recipe on Low Carb Yum and just went for it. I'm so glad I did. This stuff is delicious. I added in some drizzled chocolate because, well, everything is better with chocolate. And it's still only got 1g net carbs per serving.
Ok, now I must get back to my Rube Goldberg madness.
