Peanut Butter & Chocolate Brownie Treat



2 ounces cream cheese

1 tablespoon natural peanut butter

1 tablespoon butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda

1 tablespoon cocoa


Put the first 3 ingredients in a small microwaveable bowl; cook on HIGH 30 seconds until the cream cheese and butter are soft. Beat with a fork until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and whip briskly with a fork until well blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes, or until set. Cool or chill before serving.


NOTE: I recently bought a new microwave and discovered that this cooks in about half the time now. So, if you have a 1,200 watt microwave, start with half the time given and adjust as needed.
