Fudge Unpudged!

According to the hungry girl website, the pudge has been taken out of fudge. I'm going to run right out and make some, I wish, Brasil has no brownie mixes or peanut butter or peanut butter substitute!!!
Hungry Girl has done it again. Armed with nothing but pumpkin, some brownie mix and a VERY lowfat peanut butter, she’s whipped up a version of chocolate peanut butter fudge that's so low in calories and fat, it'll make you cry tears of joy. Here's the secret recipe...

2 cups canned pure pumpkin
1 box Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies Mix (the 18.3-oz. Family Size box)
2 tbsp. Better ‘n Peanut Butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine pumpkin with the brownie mix in a large bowl; stir until smooth (do not add anything else). Spray a small baking pan (6" X 6" or 8" X 4" work best - no larger!) with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the mixture. Spoon 2 tbsp. of Better ‘n Peanut Butter (room temperature) on top and use a knife to swirl peanut butter around. Cook for approximately 35 minutes. The batter will remain very thick and fudgy, and it should look undercooked. Remove from oven. Cover with aluminum foil and let cool in fridge for a couple of hours. Cut into 36 squares and serve.

Sugar, Wheat Flour, Cocoa (processed with alkali ) (7%) vegetable oil, corn starch, salt, dried egg whites, flavourings, emulsifier E471, raising agents: sodium bicarbonate, monoclacium phosphate.
But the question is, is it really food or can you mix up dry brownies and add pureed pumpkin? And what the heck does 7% mean, 7% of what, cocoa? alkali? vegetable oil?What do they mean flavorings, I dare say artificial cocoa, and the mix tastes artificial too! I won't even get into momoclacium. I think it can be left out if you do this from scratch.

Ok, OK I will invent a recipe and post it. You are so cruel!! I can't believe that in times of sugar crisis or the such you would need to eat real food.

I was just looking at this recipe again and thinking that if I used the packaged brownie mix, I would also add 1/4 cup of pure cocoa and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Brownie mixes don't have sufficient chocolately flavor.
