    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 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

    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

    I used this recipe to make tiny peanut butter balls. Sometimes I would put a peanut inside as I rolled it or a chocolate chip. My family all loved it along with my friends. I would give what was left over to neighbors. It was just enough and a lot of fun to see which ones held the surprises. - 8/28/12

    Why does the nutrition panel say 69.6 calories per serving yet under the pic it says 77 calories pper 1 in. serving? I don't get why Sparkrecipes seem so inconsistent with the numbers for recipes, if you enter foods diff ways for same recipe you come up with diff numbers! - 8/29/12

    I think this sounds tasty. I agree with previous posters-if you don't want to make this....don't make it. Some of us can manage not to eat the whole bloody pan at one sitting. It's a lifestyle change, not a diet, remember? I see tons of recipes on here for foods I don't like or don't want to try. - 8/28/12

    SparkPeople advocates for proper serving size,etc. This recipe photo shows nuts and they are not listed in the ingredients. The serving size sure appears to be larger than one square inch which is the stated serving size. Please don't try to "trick" us. I expect that from commercial sales not here. - 8/28/12

    If it looks too good to be true, it (once again) is. I actually laughed out loud when I saw the meager serving size needed to boast the modest calorie count. An 8" pan divided into 64... makes BITES, not SERVINGS!!! - 8/28/12

    Wow! Complainers complaining about my "complaint"? Really? We're all on this site to lose weight/get healthier. Any dessert recipe can be made into bite-sized portions.

  • Love this recipe! Easy, quick and good. Like most fudge 1 piece is all you really need. My son in law is a very picky eater and very active in sports but has a weakness for peanut butter. I used the crunchy peanut butter and gave him and my daughter some. He devoured it. Now has requested more! - 10/4/12

  • Delicious & so simple to make. I never could get that "soft ball" stage thing right with a lot of the fudge recipes.
