Peanut Butter & Chocolate Super Fudge

peanut_butter_chocolate_fudgeI Have Just Discovered My Superpower…

…And It Comes In The Form Of Fudge!

Yes, I try to eat healthy. Yes, I try to exercise regularly. Yes, I’ll even be known to do a detox cleanse once in a while, but let’s face it, everyone has their arch nemesis and mine is sugar.

Chocolate, sweets, cake and ice cream, it doesn’t matter what you do to disguise it, sugar is my kryptonite and purveyor of all evil – at least it is what keeps me from having that dream insta-worthy body.

You can be forgiven for thinking that I have gone completely cray cray – healthy fudge? Perhaps all that sugar has finally rotten my brain! – but no, I am completely and happily sane. This fudge recipe contains only natural sugars, requires only 4 ingredients, involves absolutely no cooking or baking, and takes just 30 minutes to prepare – see I am Superwoman!

Although I gave in to the search engine gods and called this recipe Peanut Butter & Chocolate Fudge I actually used Almond Butter. Not only because I have a huge bucket of the stuff thanks to a recent Costco expedition, but because it tastes amazing and contains nothing but almonds.
