I’m kicking off #Choctoberfest with bite-sized pieces of delicious fudge! I figured I would start with the “healthiest” recipe and then it’s all downhill from here. It’s the perfect sweet treat when you’re craving chocolate. I could only eat one piece – it’s a very rich treat. One of things I liked with this recipe is that it is naturally sweetened with local honey, it’s dairy-free, vegan and packed with healthy fats from the coconut oil.
I’m excited to share an extra Secret Recipe Club post this month! The months that have 5 Mondays, we are given the opportunity to participate in a turned reveal. This month’s themed reveal is Holiday Treats! Anything from pies, cookies to pudding and cookies. Oh what fun! There’s so much you could do with all the options.
After searching through my secret assignment, Fantastical Sharing, I decided on making something I never have made before – fudge! I was excited to receive Sarah’s blog, since she’s the current owner of the SRC and has a great blog full of so many recipes! She has her hands full with her three kids and managing everything she does for her blog and well as the SRC.
Back to the fudge recipe, it was so easy and was delicious. I made it for Thanksgiving as one of our desserts. It would make a great gift to give for the holidays as well!
3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup butter
16 oz jar chunky peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
7.5 oz jar marshmallow creme
Grease a 9×13 glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, milk and butter. Heat over medium heat stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and continue to stir for 4 more minutes.
Remove from the heat and mix in the peanut butter, vanilla and marshmallow Creme until smooth. Transfer to the dish and evenly spread out. Place in the refrigerator until the fudge sets and is firm. Cut the fudge into bite sized pieces and enjoy!
