Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

This creamy, delicious and very easy to make chocolate peanut butter fudge was inspired by my friend J.’s family recipe. It’s so good, I make it in small batches, to avoid unnecessary temptation!

Recipe type: Dessert, Gluten-Free, Low-Carb
Yield: 16 squares
New quantity:
Ingredients
  • 1 (3.5 oz) bar high-quality 70% dark chocolate (such as I use Lindt), broken into pieces
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • ½ cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Line a square 8-inch baking dish with wax paper.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat over very low heat, stirring often and making sure chocolate doesn’t burn.
  3. Remove from heat as soon as the chocolate is melted. Keep stirring until smooth.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, transfer the mixture to prepared pan, spreading out evenly and smoothing out the top, then gently swirling just the top to create a pretty design.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.
  6. Uncover and use the wax paper to remove the fudge from the pan and onto a cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut into 16 squares.
  7. Keep the fudge squares in the fridge, in an airtight container, separating layers with wax paper.
Notes
To our palates, this fudge is delightfully sweet. If you have a sweet tooth, and have not yet adjusted to less-is-more when it comes to sweets, consider adding ¼ cup of your choice of granulated sweetener. Granulated sugar, coconut sugar and xylitol all work in this recipe. You could also try adding 2 tablespoons honey instead of a granulated sweetener. I haven't tried that, but I think it should work.
