  • Oven Temp: 180°C

Nut Butter Chocolate Fudge


Nut Butter Chocolate Fudge 520w exposureEvery Christmas our Aunt brings a variety of home made fudges for christmas lunch. The fudge would be placed immediately on the table with the nuts and cherries and would be devoured before the lunch even got started.

Fudge has always been our “go to” treat food so we were keen to develop one that was fructose free, but also didn’t have too much sugar. Our old favourite traditional fudge recipe uses two cups of white sugar!

This recipe is a “no cook” version that is vegan friendly, lactose free, gluten free and fructose free.

You will be really surprised as this recipe is so easy and super delicious.

  • Makes: 20 pieces

  • Dish size: depends how thick you want the fudge. We used a 12cm x 14cm dish to give us lovely cubes of fudge
