PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE BROWNIE TREAT
2 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
1 tablespoon butter
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.
Makes 1-2 servings

This is very tasty and does taste a bit like a brownie. I think that 9 carbs is a bit high for one serving so I divide this into two servings.
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.
