Chocolate and Peanut Butter go together so well…and they happen to be one of my favorite flavor combination’s. This fudge is really easy to make with the delicious Coconut Peanut Butter from Tropical Traditions.
Wow your friends and relatives with this yummy (and healthy) candy! Or just enjoy it yourself 😉
NOTE: This fudge will be around 1/2-inch thick. If you want thicker fudge, double recipe but use the same-sized pan.
- 1/2 cup Coconut Peanut Butter, from Tropical Traditions (if in a solid/separated state – see below)
- 1 Tablespoon butter (or coconut oil for a dairy-free option)
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder or unsweetened chocolate powder
- 6 Tablespoons maple syrup (grade B is preferred), though you could give honey a try
- pinch (1/16 tsp.) unrefined sea salt
Softening Hard or Separated Coconut Peanut Butter
If Coconut Peanut Butter is in a solid state and/or has a hard layer of oil on top follow these instructions first.
- Place jar of coconut peanut butter (with lid off) in a small saucepan filled with a little water. Water should come about half way up the sides of jar.
- Heat over low-medium heat until peanut butter starts to melt. Stir and break up the coconut peanut butter in the jar.
- Once partially melted, turn off heat but leave pan on the burner. Continue stirring until completely melted and mixed together.
Proceed with recipe.
Line a regular (9×5-inch) loaf pan with plastic wrap. Set aside.
In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt coconut peanut butter and butter.
Stir in maple syrup, cocoa powder, and salt until dissolved. (Mixture will probably a little thick.)
Working quickly, remove from heat and pour/scrape mixture into prepared pan. Smooth out evenly across pan.
Carefully place in refrigerator to chill for at least a couple of hours to firm up. (Can be eaten at anytime after firm and chilled.)
To cut, lift out of loaf pan by pulling up on edges of plastic wrap, allow to warm up just a minute or two and cut into desired-sized pieces.
Transfer to a plate and store cut pieces in fridge until ready to eat. (If left out long in a warm room the pieces will melt and become a gooey mess.)
