Healthy Vegan Chocolate & Peanut Butter Fudge
Healthy fudge?! Yep, and it’s delicious and really easy to make, with no cooking needed. I finished eating the entire batch in 24 hours.
For the topping:
- 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts, unsalted or salted
- 2 tablespoons toasted, unsweetened coconut flakes
For the fudge:
- 9 medjool dates, pitted and torn in half
- 3 tablespoons creamy, unsalted peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons coco powder, level
- ½ teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
Add the topping ingredients to a heavy-duty food processor, and mix for a few seconds until it resembles small pieces. Place the crumbly mixture in a small, flat, glass container, evenly distributed, and cover with a lid to store the fudge in. Next, add all the fudge ingredients into that same heavy-duty food processor and mix until it forms a large ball. Pinch off about a tablespoon, and roll between your palms until it forms a smooth ball. Roll the top lightly in the “topping” and place neatly in the glass container. Most of the topping will fall off, that’s okay. It’s meant to look pretty, and you can smash the fudge into the topping with each bite (that’s more fun!).
Repeat process. You should end up with nine pieces of fudge. Store in the freezer, covered. It should be ready in a few hours. Let sit out 3 minutes to warm up slightly before eating.
