The Ingredients

ingredients for peanut butter fudge

Coconut oil. This keeps the peanut butter fudge from getting too hard in the freezer. It melts so quickly and easily that if you have it missed in, you can easily bite through the fudge as soon as it comes out of the freezer. You can certainly skip it but then your “fudge” will need to defrost for a bit before being enjoyed.

Peanut butter. The main ingredient doing all of the heavy lifting as far as flavor goes. Use any nut or seed butter you’d like if you are allergic. It is all tasty.

Maple Syrup. This is the sweeter for this peanut butter freezer fudge.

Vanilla Extract.

Salt & Cinnamon. These are optional!

Steps To Make This Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge.

FAQs & Expert Tips.

I have a peanut allergy!

No problem. Use ANY nut or seed butter you can safely enjoy

How can I make these vegan?

They already are! Use maple syrup over honey.

Chunky or smooth?

I prefer chunky – you do you boo!

How do I store these?

They will last in your fridge for up to a month. I typically line a freezer safe container with the parchment paper I used and wrap the fudge up and seal it.

    Would you supply the recipe for adding chocolate on the top?

    1. Hi Midge! That recipe is on my instagram post only. But I copied and pasted it for you here.
      For the chocolate – melt chocolate with 1 tbsp coconut oil in a double boiler. Pour over the top and freeze as the recipe suggests.
