Anytime I see fudge I think of my late Grandma Nancy. Every year, when the holidays came around, she would make a big batch of peanut butter fudge. It was the most delicious, decadent dessert in the world. As a kid, I would stuff as many chunks of the fudge in my mouth as I could. Man, it was so good!
Grandma Nancy was the typical “southern belle.” She was beautiful, strong willed, social and the best cook! I couldn’t imagine enjoying a holiday without one of her amazing desserts. Since this year was the first Christmas we spent without her, I decided to make a batch of fudge in her honor. I’m sure she would roll her eyes at my “healthier” version. But, I’m not at the age where I can stuff my face with overly sugar filled desserts anymore. Sad, I know. This Freezer Maple Almond Fudge is the best way I know how to enjoy fudge and not feel guilty. You have to try it!
In a food processor, combine 1 cup almond butter, 1/2 cup natural peanut butter, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup melted coconut oil, and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix well until you have a creamy consistency. Next, stir in 1 cup chopped almonds.
In a prepared 9×9 baking dish, pour the fudge mixture evenly then place in your freezer to set (approximately 1 hour). After it has firmed up, cut the fudge into small cubes and store in an airtight container, either in refrigerator or back in freezer.
