Holiday Pecan Fudge

Holiday Pecan Fudge

            Fudge is such an all-American favorite, especially around the holidays, but most healthy eaters figure it’s a definite no-no. I’m so pleased to prove them wrong. This recipe tastes rich and decadent, but because it’s made with nonfat milk and a moderate amount of chocolate and nuts , it’s good-for-you choice

Serves 8 @ pieces

 1 1/3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1 ¼ cups water
 ½ cup cornstarch
2/3 cup SPLENDA* Granular
 1 cup mini chocolates chips
¼ cup coarsely chopped pecans

  Spray an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a medium saucepan, combine dry milk powder, water, cornstarch, SPLENDA , and chocolate chips . Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and chocolate chips are melted , stirring constantly. Place saucepan on a wire rack. Stir in vanilla extract . Using an electronic mixer, beat on MEDIUM until mixture is light and fluffy. Fold in pecans, using a sturdy  spoon. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or until firm. Cut into 16 pieces.
