This Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is made with just four wholesome ingredients! This refined sugar free and vegan fudge is incredibly smooth, creamy, and melts in your mouth.
I’ve always been of the opinion that fudge should be easy to make – like very easy. Never ever have I bothered to fuss over a candy thermometer for good fudge, because it’s so unnecessary and stress-inducing.
My old, unhealthy favorite fudge recipe was pretty easy, but my new super easy refined sugar free + vegan fudge recipe is even EASIER. Like, no cooking necessary. Just melting the coconut oil. That’s my kind of easy.
This recipe can be mixed together and chilling in the fridge in about 5 minutes if you work efficiently, probably even faster if you skip the peanut butter swirl on top (which is mostly for looks, I’ll be honest).
So now that we know how very easy this is to make, let’s talk about the very simple steps to get this luscious, melt in your mouth peanut butter fudge in your kitchen ASAP.
First up, melt your coconut oil. Grab your peanut butter, and whisk it into the coconut oil. I always use 100% natural peanut butter, with no weird sugars or anything added. Make sure to stir it all up so it’s not too oily!
Then whisk in the maple syrup and sifted cocoa powder. Whisk it good, and when it’s smooth, voila. You’re done. Just pour it into your lined pan or muffin liners.
If you want to do the peanut butter swirl, just melt together a little peanut butter and coconut oil, and then pour/drizzle it over the top of the chocolate mixture. Swirl in with a toothpick or knife, and then chill for a few hours or until it’s firm.
That’s all! Once your fudge is firm, slice it with a sharp knife (if necessary) and enjoy. I like letting it warm up at room temperature for a few minutes to make it ultra delicious + totally melt in your mouth.
This peanut butter fudge is incredibly rich, chocolatey, peanut buttery, and it will make you melt! It’s perfect for all my fellow chocolate peanut butter aficionados out there 😉 take a few minutes and whip up a batch of this luscious chocolate peanut fudge, you won’t regret it :) enjoy!

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge (Refined Sugar Free + Vegan)
- 1/2 cup (100g) coconut oil, melted

- 1/2 cup (42g) cocoa powder, sifted
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt omit if your peanut butter is salted
For the peanut butter swirl
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter

Line a 9x5" loaf pan with parchment paper, or alternatively line a mini muffin tin with muffin liners. Lightly grease with coconut oil.

Pour mixture into the prepared pan or liners.
For the peanut butter swirl, melt together the peanut butter and coconut oil in a small saucepan or in the microwave until combined. Drizzle over the chocolate and use a toothpick or knife to swirl it in.
Place in the refrigerator and chill until firm, about 2 hours.
Let soften at room temperature for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares with a sharp knife. Store in the refrigerator.
