Sometimes all you need is simplicity. As long as that simplicity includes a little peanut butter and chocolate, am I right?
I’ve had a lot on the go as of late. My mind is bursting with things I need to get done and deadlines I have to keep my eye on. When life gets hectic and I’m running on less sleep than usual I tend to get a tad lazy in the eating department. Toast with jam masquerades a meal and bowls of cereal equals lunch. The heat of the summer does not help as turning on the stove seems like hellish torture.
Enter this cold customer. Coconut Oil Peanut Butter Fudge.
A little elegant marbling brings this uber-easy no bake treat to new heights. It looks so fancy! Just drizzling some melted dark chocolate and dragging a toothpick through it creates the marbled effect. So fun. 🙂
Thankfully indulgences like this one are full of healthy fats that don’t actually make you fat! Amen to that.
Happy Humpday, peeps. Enjoy!
