Ingredients

Instructions

  • Over a double boiler, add the chocolate, sun butter or nut butter and maple syrup. Mix until the mixture is evenly melted and smooth.

  • Pour or transfer the thick mix into a parchment-paper lined 9X5 inch loaf pan. Even it out using a spatula. Chill for an hour.

Notes

Depending on the climate you live in, fudge will soften at room temperature after a while , so don’t leave it out of the fridge or freezer for too long.

  • The fudge should be refrigerated and can be stored up to 3 weeks.
  •  If you like, you can sprinkle them with some crushed pink sea salt or you can either mix it into the batter.
  • Add spices to add a seasonal twist for the holiday season. Try my pumpkin pie spice or gingerbread spice or Chai spice .
  • Feel free to add toppings such as coconut, a little nut butter swirl, dried fruit etc.

Ingredients:

  • Sun butter or Nut butter: Sunbutter aka sunflower seed butter works really well here and I love the smooth, creamy texture. It has the perfect creamy consistency for fudge and as it’s a seed, it makes this treat nut-free. That being said, you can use any nut or seed butter you like. Peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter all work. You just want to make sure it’s not too dry, whatever “butter” you use should be drippy and easily spreadable.
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips:  I use semi-sweet chocolate as that is sweet enough that you don’t need much added sweetness. If using dark chocolate or unsweetened chocolate, add some sweetener of choice as needed.
  • Maple syrup for natural sweetness. No refined sugar in here.
