Tonight I tried chocolate for the first time in 8 months. After combining it with 3 other ingredients, this happened:
Okay, maybe not quite. But almost.
It was more like:
This simple, mouth watering recipe has been loved by friends with normal diets. So how can I not pass it on to you? You won’t regret it.
Happy Valentines Day.

Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (slightly melted, but not hot)
- 1/2 cup good quality cocoa powder (such as Scharffen Berger)
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used my homemade peanut butter)
- 1/4 cup mild raw honey
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (I use my homemade vanilla – Only $0.32 an ounce!)
Prepare a muffin pan with 10 muffin liners.
Put all ingredients in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse a few times until everything is smooth and nicely combined. (It will be very liquid-y.) Don’t over-mix.
Pour the liquid fudge into the prepared muffin liners dividing evenly between the ten of them. There will be about a half inch of fudge in each muffin liner.
Place the muffin pan in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until the fudge has hardened. (Sometimes I use the freezer and it only takes about 10 minutes)
Remove the muffin liners from the pan and enjoy your delicious, healthy fudge! Store in the refrigerator.
* I altered this slightly, using a smoothie blender instead of a food process to create the cocoa powder. It’s very rich without vanilla. You may also substitute almond butter for peanut butter, and maple syrup for honey. I also melted everything in a pan together before pouring into the liners.
Take that, food allergies.
