Ingredients You’ll Need
Chocolate: Use vegan semi sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. My favorite brand of chocolate chips for this fudge is Enjoy Life.
Peanut Butter: You’ll want to use a creamy, no-stir peanut butter for this recipe. Some of the natural peanut butters that require stirring may be too oily. We like to use Justin’s peanut butter.
Peanuts: You can skip these if you’d like but adding some chopped peanuts to this fudge gives it a nice little crunch. Use unsalted, roasted peanuts.
Flakey Salt: Helps cut through the sweetness of this fudge and creates that delightful flavor combination of salty and sweet.
See recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.
For the peanut butter: any nut butter will work instead of peanut butter but the flavor will be a little different.
For the peanuts: use another chopped nut for crunch or even chop some vegan peanut butter cups for the top. Want to add a pop of color and flavor? Add chopped freeze dried strawberries – a classic pairing with both peanut butter and chocolate.
More topping options: crushed pretzels, granola, crisp rice cereal.
Step by Step
Step One: Add your chocolate chips to a mixing bowl and microwave to melt. When they are still warm, stir in the peanut butter.
Step Two: Pour fudge mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan.
Step Three: If desired, heat up an extra tablespoon of peanut butter in a small dish in the microwave until runny. Pour over fudge mixture and swirl with a butter knife.
Step Four: Sprinkle fudge batter with chopped peanuts and flakey salt. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour until firm. Cut into 20 pieces. Store in the fridge.
Gather all of your ingredients before starting: this recipe comes together very quickly so you want to get everything out and measured before starting.
To create the swirled top: put an extra 1 tablespoon of peanut butter in a small dish and microwave for about 30 seconds until pourable. Drizzle over the top of the fudge before chilling and create swirls with a butter knife.
Storage: store this fudge in the fridge or freezer in an airtight as it will soften on the counter – especially if it is hot out.
Yes! It is really easy to make a sugar free version of this recipe – simply use sugar free chocolate chips.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Store in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
Yes! You can make this with white chocolate chips instead if you like. If you want to use a vegan option, I like the vegan white chocolate chips from Enjoy Life.
