So incredibly rich and CREAMY. Smooth, soft and LUXURIOUS. It literally melts in your mouth.

The BEST flavor combo.. dare I say EVER?? Creamy peanut butter & chocolate… but so much healthier than conventional chocolate.

I’m in shock here… Healthy fudge? Count me in!

Minute Man

These scrumptious little bites take just MINUTES to put together. Less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Because sometimes you don’t have hours to spend on a recipe! 

Simply melt together a few ingredients — mainly unsweetened chocolate, peanut butter, coconut oil – on your stovetop. (A microwave is not recommended for this type of chocolate since it tends to seize/harden/get funky)

I don’t have a double boiler, so I just put a glass bowl on a pot of boiling water. It works great! And saves space in my kitchen.

Then pour into silicone molds or a small dish (don’t forget the parchment!), and freeze.

This recipe makes a small batch, but feel free to double it, if you’re feeding a crowd (or if you’re a pb chocoholic, like me) πŸ˜‰

Customizable Deliciousness

Sweeten with my favorite zero-calorie, all natural sweetener: Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Stevia Drops.

It just takes a few drops to create all the sweetness you need without the carbs! Can I get a hallelujah?! 

NO added sugar. I STILL can’t believe it myself! You control the amount of sweetness to fit YOUR exact tastes! Customizable chocolate FTW.

Fudge Babies

Slice these babies into 1″ squares, or make them big. However you want. It’s your fudge.

I love the mini bite-size pieces. Perfect portion control. Plus they’re rich, so smaller is better.

Although I did end up eating more than 1… maybe 4..ish? Hey, being a recipe developer is a tough job, lol. Somebody’s gotta taste it. πŸ˜‰

But when I let my hubby and kids try it, they kept coming back for seconds and thirds (ok maybe 4ths, too!). This stuff is GOOD.

Even my husband, who is NOT a big fan of stevia, LOVED these.

You can enjoy this FREEZER Fudge straight from the freezer for a firmer bite – like a bar of chocolate (peanut butter flavored chocolate!! YUM).

OR let it set at room temperature for a few minutes to soften ever so slightly for a fudgy -melt in your mouth- DREAMY treat.

But, hence the name “Freezer Fudge” it’s gotta stay in the freezer or it will melt.

Melt in your mouth creamy peanut butter chocolate fudge. All the deliciousness of Reese's, without any added sugar!
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 25 pieces

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter + 1 Tbs for swirling
  • 1 1/2 oz 100% cacao (unsweetened) chocolate bar chopped, or coconut oil *see notes*
  • 3 Tbs coconut oil
  • 25 drops vanilla stevia 10 monkfruit drops, or 1 Tbs powdered sweetener to taste
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of pink salt

Instructions

  • Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water. Bring water to a boil over high heat.
  • Place chocolate in a glass bowl on top of the boiling water and let it set for about a minute to melt.
  • Lower the temp to a medium boil. Stir continuously until nearly all the chocolate is melted.
  • Turn the heat down very low and add the peanut butter, coconut oil, salt and stevia. Stir until completely smooth.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Taste and adjust for sweetness & saltiness.
  • Pour into silicone molds or a 5x5 dish lined with parchment overhanging the sides (for easy removal). Swirl a few small spoonfuls of peanut butter on the top.
  • Freeze for 30-60 minutes until set. Slice and enjoy!

Notes

What I used:
Aldi Organic Peanut Butter
Baker's Chocolate, unsweetened
Keep Frozen and tightly wrapped. Melts if set out at room temp for too long.
For a firm bite, eat straight from the freezer. For a softer fudge texture, allow to sit at room temp for a minute.
UPDATE: You can swap the chocolate bar for coconut oil! Delish! Here is the recipe:
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 3 Tbs raw cacao powder
  • 25 drops Sweet Leaf vanilla stevia , to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of pink salt
    To make: Mix all together and spoon into silicone molds or a small dish lined with parchment. Freeze for about 30 minutes to set, then keep refrigerated (not frozen) for best texture. Enjoy!
Want to use a different sweetener?Β I would use the equivalent of 1 Tbs sugar, then taste and adjust. I recommend powdered coconut sugar (just blend it for 20 seconds in a blender to make powder). Swerve or other granulated sweeteners would work, too. A pinch of pure stevia powder is another easy swap for stevia drops.
Liquid sweeteners, like maple syrup/honey, may not work as well in this recipe, since they cause nut butters to seize/harden, and also freeze harder, which would not create the fudge texture you want. But it might still be great! If you try a different sweetener, please report back how it goes! πŸ™‚

      Thanks! I think maple syrup might make them too soft. But if you want to give it a try, I would start with 1 Tbs at the very end with the vanilla, and adjust to taste.

      Perhaps adding one extra Tbs of coconut oil would make up for the extra liquid?

      If you try it with maple, please do report back how it goes!

      Coconut palm sugar would work, too. I would try 2-3 Tbs. Hope that helps!

    Hi Emily. Looks delicious! Do you by any chance know how much of the powdered Stevia rather than liquid, to use? Also, I can’t seem to get my hands on the Vanilla Creme and Amazon Canada doesn’t have it. Since I’ll be using the regular flavour, should I add in extra vanilla?

    • Emily says:

      Thanks! If you’re using pure stevia powder (no other ingredients), start with just a little dash. Taste and see if it needs any more. You can add an extra splash of vanilla too Let me know how it turns out

  2. Lisa says:

    Does it have to be pink salt? Would anything else work? I’ve never used it before and am not sure about using it in other things. I hate to buy it just for this.

    • Emily says:

      I just did a quick calc at MyFitnessPal.com and got 52 cal/4 g Fat/1 Net Carb/1 g Protein per serving (at 25 servings)
      Hope you enjoy! πŸ™‚ Let me know what you think if you try them.

    • Emily says:

      You could try that, but it would be different texture than fudge. If you want to use cacao, I would try 3 Tbs cacao + 3 Tbs Tbs coconut oil in place of the chocolate (and taste and adjust). If you try it, let me know how it goes! πŸ™‚

    • Emily says:

      Just tried it with cacao! It’s delish πŸ™‚
      1/3 cup peanut butter
      3 Tbs cacao
      1/3 cup coconut oil, softened
      25 drops Sweet Leaf vanilla stevia , to taste
      1 tsp vanilla
      Pinch of pink salt
      Mix all together and freeze into silicone molds or in a small dish lined with parchment.

    • Emily says:

      Yes, that should work. It may vary by brand but I would just start with a little (maybe 1/16 tsp or a splash) and taste & adjust. It doesn’t take much at all for the stevia I use.

  3. Ashley says:

    I put the recipe into My Fitness Pal and it says the servicing size is 1, is that one square? Or do you know how many goes into that 1 serving? Please let me know when you can:).

    • Emily says:

      It makes about 25 pieces, depending on how big you slice them. I use a 5×5 dish and make 1″ pieces. And I usually eat 1 or sometimes 2. Hope that helps!

    • Emily says:

      Whoops, I got mixed up and replied about the Reese’s cups recipe instead of fudge! I like the coconut oil version better actually! πŸ™‚
