Peanut butter fudge blocks

 

Chocolate and peanut butter – definitely a match made in heaven. But enjoying this flavour experience doesn’t necessarily have to be a naughty indulgence. I’ve made these fudge blocks using sugar free peanut butter, honey and coconut oil for a more wholesome but satisfying snack.

This tasty treat is loaded with peanut butter and I find that a small block or two is perfect for satisfying those sweet cravings and filling the gap between meals. The nutty chocolate base is topped with two layers – peanut butter fudge and chocolate peanut butter fudge, to make a triple layered block of deliciousness!
