Quick and Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge - the classic combination that everyone loves, in an impressive and easy recipe that will be ready before you know it!
Ever since I lost Dad, I have been taking lunch to the fine doctors and nurses that cared for him. At first, I visited every week, as I was so used to spending my days with Dad, I needed things to do.
I still visit and bring lunch, at least two times a month. Dad spent time in a few specialized offices during his care, so I make a point to stop in at all of them. The ladies at the desk where Dad received his radiation - they are simply the best. They were so sweet to Dad, and incredibly kind to me. I relied on them for a lot, and got to know them well, as you do in those situations. I am also a talker, surprising nobody.
This fudge is so easy to make, and it is a favorite of the ladies at the radiation clinic, so I make it often.
Vegan MoFo day three asks us to share a recipe that is Quick, Easy, and Delicious. It is also sweet*, and the very least I could do.
I like the flavor of dark chocolate as is - naturally 'sweet.' Give the melted chocolate a taste to determine if you'd like to add sweetener (granulated vegan sugar, brown rice syrup, maple syrup).
Quick and Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
dairy, egg, soy and gluten free, vegan
16 ounces dark chocolate (72%), chopped, or dairy free chocolate chips
½ cup coconut cream (or solid from canned full fat coconut milk)
¼ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder
Line an 8x4 loaf pan with parchment.
In a saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate with coconut cream.
Remove from heat, whisk in cocoa powder, sugar, and salt. Transfer to pan, set in refrigerator to cool.
Meanwhile, combine peanut butter and protein powder, stir until smooth. Remove fudge from refrigerator before it sets completely, swirl peanut butter mixture through top (I did this with half of the fudge, giving me half Chocolate Fudge and half Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge).
Return to refrigerator to set completely, or freezer to speed the setting process.
Dad loved this fudge too - I made it every Father's day.
