These sweet Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Yummies recipe uses Splenda in place of sugar, so you get all the taste but without as many carbs or calories.


2 1/2 cups Splenda granular
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut (lightly "toast" first for a different texture!)


Combine Splenda, cocoa, margarine, cream and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Boil for one minute. Do not overcook. Remove pan from heat and add in peanut butter and vanilla.

Spread peanut butter throughout mixture evenly and add coconut. Roll into balls, place on tray and put in refrigerator to cool.

Makes about 20.
