"What The?!" Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge
Usually when people try this recipe for the first time, the initial reaction goes something like: "What the actual fudge?!" "Fudge me." "Man this is so fudgin' delicious." "Fudge my life."... to name some. We especially would like to reinforce, that this recipe is laid out for 24 servings. Since this can lead to confusion, we recommend to make a sketch of the division of the baking tray up front. This will avoid situations, where you cut a piece in the beginning and after only two bites you realize...ain't no more fudge in the baking tray left.
Ingredients - PB Chocolate Fudge /
125g Coconut Chips (alternative Coconut Butter)
360g Peanut Butter of choice
1/2TS Vanilla Extract
1. Blend the coconut chips in a food processor until you get a smooth cream. You know it's ready when your kitchen smells like the Caribbean or like Bounty. 2. In the meantime, make sure you give your chocolate a little water bath (caution, we are not talking actually taking the chocolate with you into the bath tub), so it starts to melt. Set aside. 3. In a saucepan you heat up the coconut cream, sweetener of choice (we went for 0% sugar option) and peanut butter on medium heat. Little side note on the peanut butter, to add a bit more crunch go for the Crunchy PB or Pindakaas met stukjes. Add 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla aroma and a dash of salt to the mix. Stir until you get a smooth paste.
4. Layer a baking tray with some parchment paper and pour half of the content into the tray. 5. With the left over half in the saucepan, we now add the melted chocolate (we usually use at least 70% chocolate, mostly 99%), but it is up to you how dark you like it. Once you have mixed the leftover blend with the chocolate, add it on top of the half that is already waiting to be coated in the tray.
6. Let the whole batch sit in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
Little side note, the fudge is best stored in the freezer. Take a piece out 10 minutes before consuming, so you don't loose your teeth when you bite inside.
Caution: This recipe is highly addictive, make sure to enjoy a small piece every day, every other day. Remember it's all about balance!
