Chocolate PB Fudge–Happy Blogniversary!

I’ve been blogging for 9 years now. 9 years! So, to celebrate, I give you fudge.

I love peanut butter. Lovelovelovelovelovelovelove. And I avoided it for years, and then gradually reintroduced it a decade later…no problem at all. So I’m making up for lost time with my beloved peanut butter.

E loves this fudge, and it was actually the dessert that disappeared first at our annual party. I adore this fudge, but my tastes can be a little…different, since I rarely eat sweeteners.  So I have ample reassurance that it has wide appeal beyond just super crunchy people like me.

And it’s easy. And you can make it ahead for a party. Pretty awesome, I tell ya!

4.5 oz unsweetened chocolate

1 cup PB (unsalted, crunchy is super-awesome)

3 TBSP coconut oil

1 cup creamed honey*

2 tsp vanilla stevia (optional)

½ tsp sea salt

¼ cup chopped salted peanuts

Melt the chocolate–90 seconds in a heavy glass bowl in the microwave, or use a double boiler. Stir in the peanut butter, coconut oil and creamed honey until combined, and then stir in the salt.

If it’s not sweet enough, add in the stevia. It seems to depend on the kind of creamed honey. Sometimes it’s already perfect without.

Pour the fudgy mix into a a bread pan lined with wax paper. Press chopped peanuts into the top.

Refrigerate overnight.

Cut into pieces and enjoy!

*creamed honey is honey with air whipped in Thanks to Shirley, I learned something new about creamed honey! It’s actually crystallized differently than regular honey. I get it at a monastery I go to, but I’ve seen it at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, too. I don’t think regular honey would work.

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Your fudge looks and sounds amazing, Cheryl! I must try it soon. I’m in a major chocolate mood today. 🙂

    Btw, although I’ve read creamed honey described as honey that has had air whipped in, that is not exactly true. It’s honey that’s been processed in a way that controls crystallization. We have never had our honey crystallize. To make your own creamed honey, you can’t simply whip regular honey, you have to have some creamed honey to add to it as a “starter.” I’ve read that one jar of creamed honey will help you make many jars of creamed honey using regular honey.

    Happy Blogiversary! You’re a little bit older than me in blog years. 😉

    xo,
