Fudge Toppings

I’m in a bit of a raspberry phase at the moment, I’ve been adding them to most of my recipes and yesterday my brain exploded with the sudden thought of creating PB&J, also known as peanut butter and jelly, into fudge. I wasn’t sure whether I would do a swirl or topping at the time, but I ended up going for a divine (thin) layer of raspberry and coconut on top and the combination was simply gorgeous.

If you aren’t a fan of raspberries, totally fine. This jam layer is optional, so you can leave it out completely or choose to top the fudge with a chopped nut and seed mix instead, I actually think that would taste awesome! Here are some other suggestions you can consider to top your no bake peanut butter fudge:

  • Chopped nuts
  • Cacao nibs
  • Jam
  • Nutella
  • Cookies
  • Milk, white or dark chocolate Chips
  • Flakey sea salt

Dairy free! Gluten free! Refined sugar free!

No Bake Peanut Butter Fudge Ingredients

  • Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder. Macro Mike or Happy Way are my two favourite vegan vanilla protein powder brands to use for this recipe. Unfortunately, this recipe will not work with whey protein as it is not absorbent enough.
  • Peanut butter – smooth, natural and free from added sugars or oil.
  • Maple Syrup – you could also use rice malt syrup
  • Coconut oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Celtic sea salt – a nutrient dense alternative to regular table salt. I am obsessed with this salt and the intense flavour.
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries – I usually choose frozen as they can be cheaper and it takes thirty seconds to defrost them in the microwave and mash into a jam using a fork.
  • Shredded or desiccated coconut – to sprinkle on top of no bake peanut butter jam.

How to make No Bake Peanut Butter Fudge

  • Line a loaf pan with baking paper and set aside.
  • Combine coconut oil, maple syrup, peanut butter, vanilla extract and salt in a saucepan on low heat until just combined.
  • Remove from the heat and stir through protein powder. The mixture will quickly become very thick.
  • Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and use a spatula to spread to the edges and smooth over the top.
  • Optional: Mash fresh or frozen raspberries into a jam and spread over the fudge. Sprinkle with coconut.
  • Place the no bake peanut butter fudge into the freezer to set for twenty minutes. If you are not in a rush, you can leave the fudge in the fridge to set overnight or for a couple of hours instead of using the freezer.
  • Once set, slice into twelve pieces and serve or store in the fridge for up to one week.
