Can you believe this 2 ingredient fudge is healthy? Low carb, low sugar, preservative free and so simple to make with just two ingredients. I say two ingredients because salt doesn’t count, right?
Is this 2 Ingredient fudge for real?
The answer is YES! As mentioned above, if you count salt then you might be calling me a liar but I like to think I’m honest!
Fudge is my husband’s favourite dessert in the whole entire world but it is usually FILLED with sugar, literally fudge is almost 100% sugar and fat! Often made with gross fats too! So when I put this healthier version to him I wasn’t sure it was going to go down but he loved it and often requests that I make this recipe any time I consider whipping up a treat.
Maybe in future there will be another flavour variation to come, but for now the combination of peanut butter, chocolate and salt, definitely hits the spot! The flavours pair so well together and quite literally melt in your mouth!
Ingredients are important in this recipe as they can change the taste, texture and health claims. In particular, the peanut butter you choose! I always use a smooth natural peanut butter that is made with 100% peanuts (no oil, sugar or salt).
The chocolate you use in this recipe is almost an important consideration because that can very easily change this from a low sugar recipe to a high sugar recipe which is NOT what we want. I usually choose a 70% to 85% dark chocolate that is dairy free such as the Lindt Excellence Blocks. Another option is using a sugar free chocolate, but be careful to read the label as they can often have some nasty sugar alcohols in them that will cause an upset tummy for a lot of people. The sugar free milk chocolate from Well Naturally is one of my favourites.
Maldon sea salt flakes give this the Insta-aesthetic with salt flakes on top but are not necessary. I will say though, that the salty touch is divine when it hits your lips… DROOL!
This really doesn’t last long in our house..
What you will need to make this delicious 2 Ingredient Fudge
Peanut butter – always, always, always, read the label of your peanut butter jar to make sure it doesn’t contain sugar or vegetable oils. We want 100% peanuts, perhaps with a touch of salt, but nothing else.
Chocolate – I like to use Lindt 70% or 85% dark chocolate to keep the recipe for this 2 ingredient fudge super low sugar and also dairy free.
Extras – I love this fudge as is but you can definitely mix through any additions like some roasted nuts, toasted coconut or cacao nibs. Any of these would also make a nice decoration to sprinkle over the top of the fudge before it sets in the fridge.
NOTE: If you like things super sweet then I recommend using a sweeter chocolate or sifting some powdered stevia through the mixture.
