Cook Time5 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 25 pieces
- 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
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!
What I used:
Aldi Organic Peanut Butter
Baker's Chocolate, unsweetened
Virgin Coconut Oil
Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Stevia Drops
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:
Want to use a different sweetener? 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! :)
