This Cake Batter Freezer Fudge by Tara Sunshine is super easy to make, tastes amazing, and just so happens to be sugar-free and packed with healthy fats and protein! Try it with tahini or sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option.
2. Date-Sweetened Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge
Imagine a fudgy bite, perfectly sweetened with dates and lightly salty from the peanut butter. Then top that with melted chocolate for the most delicious chocolate peanut butter flavor combination. This Date-Sweetened Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge by Caroline Doucet is the ultimate sweet and salty dessert. The cacao butter gives it a rich, fudgy texture that doesn’t harden completely when frozen. Cacao also provides a rich chocolate flavor, which goes perfectly with this peanut butter fudge. If you can’t find cacao butter (it’s not exactly sold everywhere), you can use coconut oil or coconut butter. It should give you a similar result.
3. Delicious Walnut Fudge

The best part about this Delicious Walnut Fudge by Ciarra Siller is that once it’s made, this fudge can last for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator. This recipe adds walnuts for extra texture, but if you prefer a smooth fudge, they can be omitted or replaced with your favorite nut!
