Description

Easy healthy fudge made with just 3 simple ingredients: no sugar added chocolate chips, natural peanut butter and chopped peanuts. Only 1 gram of sugar per piece!


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter, creamy or crunchy if you want texture
  • 1 1/3 cups (8 oz) Lily’s dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 chopped roasted peanuts

Instructions

  1. Line a pan with parchment: Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper. I like to use binder clips on each side to keep the parchment in place.
  2. Melt dark chocolate: Place chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave using 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted and smooth. It will likely take 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave). You can also use a double-boiler to melt your chocolate if desired.
  3. Add peanut butter: Quickly add peanut butter to the melted chocolate and stir until completely combined.
  4. Transfer to loaf pan: Pour peanut butter chocolate mixture into the prepared loaf pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top.
  5. Chill: Place in the fridge to set for about 30-60 minutes or until firm to the touch.
  6. Cut and serve: Once chocolate has hardened, cut into small square pieces and serve.
  7. For storage: Store fudge in a dark, cool place. It should last about 7-10 days in a cool kitchen or even longer (about 3 weeks or so) in the fridge or freezer. If you keep the fudge in the fridge or freezer, be sure to bring it out and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before eating because the chocolate gets really hard when chilled.
