Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Peanut Butter Cups

This is a makeover of a recipe I originally posted back in January 2012.....before I did pictures. It just needed to be done again!  This is one of those recipes where you're either gonna love me or hate me!  Either way......this is a GOOD recipe!

Makes 12 Servings
1 Serving = 1 PointsPlus™

2 TBSP Creamy Peanut Butter
2 TBSP Chocolate Syrup
1 8-oz. container Cool Whip Free

1. Melt peanut butter in microwave for @20 seconds or until smooth.

2. Stir in chocolate syrup.

3. Fold mixture into the Cool Whip Free in a medium bowl until well combined. DO NOT STIR OR MIX......seriously FOLD!!!!

4. Spoon into 12 paper-lined muffin cups.

5. Freeze @ 1 hour.

MY SPIN: I used Low Sodium Better'n Peanut Butter. I used Smucker's Sundae Syrup, Fat Free, Chocolate the first time I made these. Why you (didn't) ask? Because that's what I had on hand! This time I used the Hershey's Sugar Free Syrup. I left mine in the freezer for @an hour and it came out like a mousse and was extremely yummy! I gave this recipe to my friend Susan and hers came out harder....she said kinda like a Reese's PB Cup. Mine would be eaten with a spoon....I used a teaspoon (versus a shovel) and got 4 yummy bites. Susan said you can't just nibble on them when they get harder because they'll melt. Either way......MAKE 'EM!!!! I mean c'mon!!! ONE POINTSPLUS™!!!

I would actually make this for company but instead of putting it into muffin cups, I think I'd use ramekins or those cutesie parfait cups and make them a 2 PointsPlus™ dessert instead. And I can envision maybe some cocoa sprinkled on top.......
Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*
Loving Life!
