Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Today was such a great day and so I’ve decided to share such a great healthy fudge recipe!

had a really awesome day at middle school: In morning meeting, I have been teaching the Thriller Dance so that we can Flash Mob another homeroom for Halloween.  The kids look so great doing the dance and they are really getting into it.  We are having a fun time and I think it is awesome how they all work together and buy into the whole experience.  Plus, they get to see me doing something I love, dance! Also, we had some time to review the constructions we are working on in math and I got to see not one, not two, but three students who typically slack off or act out, try really hard and get a lot of good work done.  I felt like today was really positive and productive!

Next, I had work all afternoon.  It was a pretty great work day as well.  I helped answer a bunch of e-mails and phone calls and I was able to get some good homework done and work on this blog a bit! I felt productive both to myself and the job!

Afterwards, I had Core Crunch, which is always a blast because I get to hang with my friend, Margo.  The class is pretty tough and I love that I get a great work out in in 30 minutes.  Then it’s time for dinner!

On Tuesdays after dinner, I always bake with my friend, Casey.  This time, we made caramel apples!

So, after all this fun stuff, I have a recipe! I saw a version of Healthy Fudge made by Chocolate & Carrots and I knew I just had to try it! Here is my version:

  1. Hey! I’m curious if you could use coconut milk instead of coconut oil? Or if that would just change everything? Forgive me if this is a silly question, I’m new to the healthy desserts!

    1. In this case, no you can not substitute coconut milk for oil because of the consistency. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature where coconut milk is not. It likely would never set properly.

  2. Wow! This is amazing! I’ve just started changing my lifestyle and eating clean and this was just what I needed for my chocolate cravings!
    Thank you for the recipe, instructions and nutritional facts.

  4. I made these last night.they are de-LICIOUS!

    1. Glad you enjoyed them! I LOVE this recipe, it’s so versatile!

  5. This looks good. I might try it with homemade nut butter and maybe add some nibs. The maple syrup idea sounds good also. I wonder if molasses would work. Definitely got my experimentation juices flowing.

    1. I bet molasses would work great! I’ve tried many variations of this since and they all seem to work great!

  6. This is so SO so good. I use maple syrup since I can’t tolerate honey, and it’s amazing. Thank you!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! Maple syrup is a wonderful idea!

  7. How bad is it that I just had to use my fingers to do the math on your little captcha thing? Ugh. Maybe healthy fudge will help me get better at math? Probably not, but I’ll take some anyway!! Yum!
