Cocoa Nut Butter No-Bake Fudge

no bake chocolate nut butter fudge

One of my favorite food bloggers is Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe. Recently, she posted a no bake fudge that had my mouth watering and of course I just had to try it, though I generally prefer savory treats. The addition of maple syrup, nut butter and pistachios really make this a rather almost healthy sweet. Easy to prepare and oh so addictive, this is a must try recipe for sure. My friends were most happy with this fudge and they could not stop munching on it, despite a full tummy after dinner.

Simple but heavenly and guilt-free no-bake cocoa fudge with nut butter

Print this recipePrint this recipe

  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 3/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup maple syrup, to taste
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • pinch of chili powder
  • 1/3 cup raw pistachios, crushed into pieces
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the nut butter and melted butter or coconut oil. Stir in the maple syrup and cocoa. Stir in the salt and spices and fold in the pistachios.

  • Line a 5 or 6 inch glass or metal pan with parchment paper and transfer the mixture, taking care to spread evenly. Freeze until the fudge is firm, cut into small squares, and store any leftovers in the freezer.

Makes 9 to 12 small fudge squares

This looks tasty- I think I'd like to make it for some guests this week!Just for clarification- does it stay ready-to-eat in the freezer? Or, would I want to let it sit before serving, if I made it ahead of time?
Thanks :)

I found it was quite good right from the freezer, but you could leave it out for a bit before serving, though it might be a bit gooey.

looks dark and intense and inviting - so glad you enjoyed it - so great to have a stash in the freezer - I ate it straight from the freezer and found it soft enough albeit cold
