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 favor combination. It’s the ultimate sweet and salty dessert.
Sugar Free Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge [Vegan]
- 1 1/2 cup peanut butter, natural (see note)
- 1/2 cup Medjool dates
- 1/4 cup cacao butter, melted
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened or dark chocolate, melted (for drizzling)
In a food processor, add the peanut butter, dates, melted cacao butter (I used a microwave) and salt. Process until smooth.
Line a sandwich Tupperware container or small square dish with parchment paper. Transfer the fudge mixture to the container and spread evenly.
Seal the dish or container and place in the freezer for at least 3 hours or until the fudge has hardened lightly. It should stay "fudgy", even after days in the freezer.
Drizzle the fudge with melted chocolate, then return to the freezer for another 10 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened. Cut into little squares and enjoy straight from the freezer!
This recipe is very lightly sweetened. If you're looking for a sweeter fudge, use 1 cup of dates instead. Just keep in mind that the texture will be a little different (keep it in the fridge instead of the freezer and it will stay perfectly fudgy - It hardens too much in the freezer). You could also try just adding a bit of maple syrup! You can also use dark chocolate instead of unsweetened to make the recipe sweeter.
