COCONUT OIL PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
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. Yikes. Not ideal to say the least.
One thing for sure, my healthy snack game is ON POINT!
Enter this cold customer.
Oh, this Coconut Oil Peanut Butter Fudge is something.
Just imagine the most indulgent, creamy, chocolaty, peanut buttery, velvety treat that just melt in your mouth. I’ve been slicing a piece into four squares and savouring every bite.
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 that marbled effect.
So fun. 🙂
Thankfully indulgences like this one are full of healthy fats that don’t actually make you fat! Amen to that.
