Peanut Butter Holiday Fudge

Maggie Michalczyk, RDN
This peanut butter fudge is a fun dessert you can stash in your freezer for anytime you need a little something after lunch or dessert! It's made with simple ingredients and is easy to make! 
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Servings 16 -18 squares

Ingredients
  

For the peanut butter layer:

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup

For the chocolate layer:

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup

Instructions
 

  • In a medium bowl mix together peanut butter, coconut oil and maple syrup. Mix until smooth.
  • For the chocolate layer, in a separate bowl, mix together peanut butter, coconut oil, cocoa powder and maple syrup. Mix until smooth and combined.
  • Add the chocolate fudge layer to the loaf pan and spread evenly across the bottom. This is where I added my roughly chopped almonds (I used Skinny Dipped Almonds!) by gently sprinkling them across the top of this layer. Freeze for 10 minutes.
  • Next add the peanut butter layer on top. Use a rubber spatula to gently spread over the chocolate layer. Add any toppings on top like sea salt, chocolate chips, nuts, or sprinkles.
  • Place in freezer for 15-10 minutes or until the fudge hardens. Once it has hardened, remove from the freezer, let sit on the counter for about 5 minutes to slightly thaw, and cut into squares.
  • Store pieces in the freezer to pull out whenever you want a piece!
