Peanut butter chocolate fudge is a decadent dessert. It’s a classic sweet and salty combination that smooth and rich.
You may have seen my Instagram post on Saturday regarding a certain sweet treat. After an early morning on Saturday, I had plenty of time to prepare a dessert for a Super Bowl party we attended on Sunday. But, the recipe I ended up making only takes about ten minutes to put together.
Peanut butter chocolate fudge is exactly what I needed after completing Whole30 last week. It’s rich and sweet and super chocolatey. Coconut oil provides a smooth base for this fudge. Plus, peanut butter and chocolate is one of my all time favorite combinations. Just a bit of salt is added to really bring out the flavor of the fudge.
Initially, I thought this recipe was paleo. But, then I realized I was totally wrong! It’s not paleo because of the peanut butter (which is technically made from legumes). If you swap the peanut butter for almond butter, then you’re totally fine.
This peanut butter chocolate fudge is the perfect dessert for me and I think you’ll love it to! I hope you make it this week and enjoy every bite.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup molasses
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a small saucepan over low heat, melted the coconut oil and peanut butter.
Once melted, add in the cocoa powder, vanilla, molasses and salt. Stir to combine and then remove from the heat.
Pour the mix into an 8X8 baking pan lined with parchment paper. Put the pan in the fridge and allow the fudge to set for three hours.
Once the fudge has set, remove the pan from the fridge. Remove the parchment paper from the pan and turn the fudge onto the counter.
Slice into desired number of pieces and serve.
