EASY PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE RECIPE
Not many vegan recipes come as simple as this one. Just 3 ingredients and 15 minutes preparation time will get you a tasty, chocolatey treat. Sometimes, it's the most straightforward goodies that get our hearts the most!
- Try not to burn your chocolate chips when melting them. The double-boiling method can create high temperatures meaning that you must continuously stir them until they're creamy.
VARIATIONS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
- I have found that substituting the peanut butter for almond butter 1:1 works very well. It all depends on which you prefer. The end result is similar. Although I haven't tried cashew butter for this recipe, I'd imagine that it'd work well.
- If you don't have any chocolate chips at hand, you can always use the equivalent amount of vegan baking chocolate instead.
- Feel free to add any toppings too. I sprinkled Lotus Biscoff crumbs onto my peanut butter fudge.
HOW TO STORE PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE?
I like to store my vegan chocolate fudge in the fridge for up to a week as it doesn't firm up too much. However, you can also freeze your chocolate treats for a month in ziplock bags or an airtight container if you prefer.
After taking your chocolate fudge out from the freezer, make sure that you allow it to thaw for a short while - unless you like it super hard!
HELPFUL EQUIPMENT FOR THIS RECIPE
