When you use cocoa powder in dessert recipes, you are getting a little-added nutrition as it contains minerals to include calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, potassium, sodium, and zinc. All of these minerals are found in greater quantities in cocoa powder than they are found in both cocoa liquor and cocoa butter. The peanut butter used in this recipe for fudge adds a bit of protein to the recipe.
