    These are delicious and a 1-inch square is just the right size for a small treat. Lighten up folks - we still live in the real world. There are times when one piece of this would help me resist another really high calorie Dessert that might be offered. Chef Meg gives us variety! - 8/28/12

    To the people complaining about the serving size. We are here to get healthy, but at the same time we dont want to deprive outselves and make it easier to fall off the deep end so I think the serving size is fair. The ones who say its mearly a bite, when it comes to fudge do you REALLY need more? - 8/28/12

    i am reading the complaints and am a bit disappointed in people. First, there ARE some of us that enjoy seeing a reasonable dessert on here. I am one of those people..thank you Chef Meg for that! AND..look at any old recipe for ANY fudge..an 8x8 pan yields 64 servings. 8x8=64..NOT 16. - 8/28/12

    Come on people! If you don't like it don't try it. If you want more than a bite then just be sure to add it to your tracker. I would love to see more recipes like this. Thanks Chef Meg! - 8/28/12

    use organic coconut palm sugar instead of powdered sugar and your recipe will be very healthy. coconut palm sugar does not affect the glycemic index and is very tasty. You can use less than regular sugar. Being diabetic I use it often, and sell it at my health food store...kmorganics - 8/28/12

    For those complaining, I would just say that most of the recipes on SP are healthy, veggie-based, protein-packed recipes. But sometimes we need a treat too, and I'm glad that Chef Meg recognizes that and posts recipes such as this one. Looking forward to trying this! - 8/28/12

    Personally, I'm glad to see something sweet. I have printed page upon page of veggies and so forth and occasionally my sweet tooth needs a bite of something sweet. If you don't prefer sweets, don't make the recipe. Pretty simple I think. - 8/28/12

    I made a sample of this using 2T butter, 2T PB 1/4 teas. vanilla and thickened with powdered sugar. Delicious and you don't need much to satisfy. I have enough for 4 servings. - 8/28/12

    I love fudge, Chef Meg, so I'm more than *happy* and thankful for this little dab of sweet! Taken in l.o.n.g. leisurely taste fest, the serving meets that craving and I'll bet this could be made with any nut butter. I wonder if whipped honey could be substituted. hmm... - 8/28/12

    This site is not just for one person, and it has to cater to individuals with many different nutritional needs and health concerns. If a recipe is not right for you, don't make it. The nutrition info is right there for you to see. I love having a variety to choose from. - 8/28/12

    I am going to try this with sugar sub. and see how it turns out. Everything else I have used sugar sub. in has been fine. I will also add the choc. chips. Thanks Chef Mag for this recipe. Not ALL of us deprive ourselves of a sweet tooth every now and then and yes a one inch square is plenty. - 8/28/12

    Personally, if the recipe looks interesting I look at it and maybe even attempt it. If it's a dessert and I want a dinner recipe? Hmm, I look up a dinner recipe. But as far as coming on here to criticize everything Chef Meg posts, not my style. A 1 inch bite of this fudge sounds heavenly. - 8/28/12

    If this recipe makes 64 servings, I think a serving would be barely one bite. - 8/28/12
