This fudge has something strangely addictive – it’s like you keep coming back for more without being able to resist; like the arm opening the fridge and reaching for another piece isn’t really controlled by your brain anymore.

But are you really surprised? I mean, peanut butter + chocolate you guys! It’s like, in the top 10 of my most favorite combo. No actually, scratch that, in the top 5. And when it’sĀ salted peanut butter + chocolate… O.M.G. better strap that arm tightly!

There are different kinds of fudge and this one isn’t like the soft caramel kind. It’s definitely more on the crunchy side, without being too hard either (didn’t want you to lose your teeth – not pretty for all these holiday parties!). The little holes you see are because of the shredded coconut. It gives some density to the bars and adds a lovely discreet flavor. If you really want a smooth texture, skip them and use smooth peanut butter instead.

The other thing I love about these treats is how easy they are to make. It’s like you just mix a few ingredients together, chill everything to let it set and bam, you’re done. Super convenient if you’re planning to make them during the holiday season as gifts!

Enjoy! šŸ™‚

Recipe Notes

  • You can make these without the shredded coconut for a smoother texture but it will yield less bars (and I love the discreet flavor it adds)

  1. LOVE the peanuts on these. I like a little crunch in my fudge. Too soft and I end up with more on my hand than in my mouth haha.
