Sometimes you just need to treat yo self! This delicious, simple fudge can be made in about 10 minutes and ready to eat in just a little over an hour. Made with simple whole ingredients, and is vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free!

This is one treat that is perfect to eat straight from the freezer.  The freezer helps keep the ingredients cool.  With the coconut oil, the fudge may melt if it’s left out at room temprature for too long.  I’d recommend storing this fudge in the freezer or fridge until you are ready to eat.

How Do I Make This Vegan Walnut Fudge Recipe?

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, cacao powder, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt. Mix until the fudge becomes smooth and well incorporated.
  2. Fold the walnuts into the mix, saving some to sprinkle on the top.
  3. Place the fudge in the freezer, and slice once it has hardened.

This fudge will soften when left out at room temperature, so I recommend leaving it in the freezer or refrigerator.
