Holiday cookies are all well and good, but how about making a batch of this easy, delicious, & relatively healthy fudge to mix things up a bit this year?
Peanut butter contributes protein, white chocolate lends sweetness, and coconut oil is to thank for the fudgy consistency of these little morsels of deliciousness.
These treats require no baking or candy thermometers, just a double boiler – which you can easily make in a pinch by putting a metal bowl over a small pot of simmering water. The fudge does have to be kept chilled to maintain its texture, but other than that, it is a low-maintenance dessert.
Just be forewarned: it’s really tough to stop eating these little two-bite squares!

|Prep Time||15 minutes|

Ingredients (24 pieces)
- 1 cup all-natural white chocolate chips (such as Sunspire)
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 cup creamy all-natural peanut butter, preferably organic, stirred well
Line a square or rectangular glass container with parchment paper or foil. How thick you’d like your fudge will determine what size container you use. I used one that measured 6×4 inches.
Combine chocolate chips, coconut oil, and peanut butter in a double boiler (I make my own with a heat-proof bowl set over a small saucepan with 1 inch of simmering water. Stir until fully melted and smooth. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Spread mixture evenly in pan. Freeze for 1 hour – or chill in fridge for 2-3 – before cutting into pieces. Store in the fridge.
