Salted Maple Peanut Butter Fudge

By Wednesday, June 05, 2013 , , , , ,

Yes, you heard me right, fudge on a healthy eating blog. This fudge is vegan and just plain delicious, and it's also ever so quick and easy to make. It's perfect as a simple dessert or snack when you fancy something sweet, because it's so rich you only need a square or two to be satisfied.

You will need:
1/2 cup natural runny peanut butter (I used homemade)
2 tbsps melted coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp sugar
A pinch of salt

Combine all of the above ingredients in a glass bowl sitting in a saucepan of simmering water. Allow to cool a little then transfer to a small baking dish lined with cling film/wrap. Place it in the freezer to set for a few hours, then cut into 12 squares and transfer into a container of your choice. Due to the nature of the ingredients and their low melting point, the fudge has to stay in the freezer until you're ready to serve, just give it a few minutes to soften up! 

This stuff is purely heaven, and I personally enjoy it so much more than the usual sugary fudge, the texture is a lot smoother and it feels a lot more decadent and rich. Plus, this is 100% natural and good for you!

  2. Hi Siobhan.
    I'm the one asking if the peanutbutter could be swaped with other nutbutters. I tried it yesterday with brazilnutbutter and the fudge turned out well. It has a nutty, creamy flavour - heavenly. Though the fudge is a little to oily ( I know... it is because of the higher fatcontent of brazil nuts). Because I let it sit in the fridge (not the freezer, I didn't read it correctly) they where to soft to be cut, so I rolled them into balls between my palms. I guess you could try to cover them with cacao or shredded coconut and call them truffels!
    Now I put the fudgetruffels in the freezer. :)
    Thank you for the recipe. I'm surely going to try more of your recipes and experiment with the ingridents.

  3. Hi, can I use honey instead and make it honey peanut butter fudge since the consistency is the same? Agave nectar doesn't sit well with me :/ x

    1. Hello, I used maple syrup in mine to give it a smoky, maple flavour, but I am sure honey would work fine. I don't use agave anymore either!
