Almond Chocolate Freezer Fudge

Fudge is something I haven’t indulged in quite sometime. It’s usually loaded with condensed milk, crisco (transfat), refined sugar and other ingredients I like to avoid. My hiatus from fudge ended last week when I made these melt in your mouth beauties inspired from a recipe I saw on Detoxinista. The best thing about this fudge (other than the fact that it tastes just heavenly!), is the nutritional profile that does not resemble dessert at all. Filled with whole organic ingredients, you just can’t get more simple and real. A one inch square of this fudge has just the right amount of sweetness, fat and protein to seriously satisfy your sweet tooth unlike a piece of traditional fudge, cake, or something overly refined that could cause you to overindulge in more than your share.

I just love the fact that it is stored and eaten right out the freezer, that cold melty feeling of the fudge is perfect for Summer.

Cheers to Healthy Desserts!

    I’m allergic to almonds. Nutritionally, would it be okay to substitute peanut or cashew butter?

  2. Amrin

    ooooo I can’t wait to try this. Its remarkably soo simple and real!!! Can’t wait to try it. So excited!! ;) Thanks for sharing. xoxo

    I ran out of almond butter today, but I will definitely be picking some up tomorrow to make this amazing looking treat. after a 6 mile run this looks soooo tasty!

    I don’t know if you’ve been to “The Secret Chocolatier” in the shopping center at the corner of providence and sharon amity, but they have a good selection of high quality, fair trade, dark (darkkk) chocolate bars. At least they did the last time I went in. :) When I’m over that way I sometimes check them out if nothing struck my fancy (chocolate wise) at Earth Fare.

    • Food Babe (to chelsea)

      Chelesa – I’ve never been there! Thanks for sharing, sounds like an amazing place. Mmmm.

    • Alisia (to chelsea)

      Love the Secret Chocolatier! I also love the look of this recipe. I will definitely be trying this soon.

    Sounds wonderful! Do you melt the coconut oil first? Also great idea for holiday times when I used to bake unhealthy fudge, now I can do this. I plan on trying Sun butter since I have some in my family who can not have peanut or almond.

    • Food Babe (to Wendy)

      Wendy – Since coconut oil is soft at room temperature, it really isn’t necessary to melt it first, but you certainly could! Please let me know how sunbutter turns out – my nephews could take these to school then!

  5. Debra

    I love coconut, however, my kids do not :( they can taste it when I use it in brownies, cookies etc.
    Any suggestions on a different healthy fat/oil?

    • MD (to Debra)

      Virgen or extra virgen coconut oil has the taste and smell of coconuts, but expeller pressed coconut oil does not have any taste or smell!

  6. Brittany

    Looks like a delicious option for people, like myself that are gluten free. Can not wait to try this, thanks.

  7. bethany

    Just made this and it is fantastic! I melted the chocolate slightly to mix in with everything else. Perfection :) Thank you!

  8. Natalia

    I just made this today as a treat for the drive-in tonight! I sprinkled some organic unsweetened shredded coconut on top, then the chopped chocolate, yum! I had a sample & it’s SO good! Thank you for this recipe, LOVE IT!! :)

    • Food Babe (to Natalia)

      WOW… never thought about adding shredded coconut, yum! Can you say Almond Joy? :)

  9. Nicole

    This was amazing! My children (2 & 31/2 yrs.) loved it also! Thanks for sharing.

  10. K

    I’ve made these detoxinista’s way with honey and am curious why you switched to maple syrup. For taste/texture/nutrient content or just personal preference? Thanks!

  11. Alicia

    I’d love to try this! Where can I purchase almond butter?

    • Alicia (to Alicia)

      Wow.. Nevermind my silliness. I already have almond butter at home :)

  12. Mar

    This fudge is absolutely delicious and so easy to make, I loved it.

    I made it for my 20+ daughter and as soon as she tried it she said “it tastes like childhood” :-)

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

  13. Mae

    Silly question. Will these travel? I want to bring them to Cape Cod with us but we won’t have access to a freezer after we leave the house. Are they okay at room temp?

  14. Alicia

    This is awesome. And even better – I already had all the ingredients on hand! YUM

  15. Danna

    This recipe looks perfect for this time of year. Do you use “raw” almond butter, or almond butter made from roasted almonds? I find the taste is distinctly different depending on which is used, and I want these to turn out as fabulous as they look!

  16. Eilish

    have made this recipe half a dozen times — thanks for providing it, it’s a beautiful treat. My thought is to play around with peppermint oil or orange .. what do you think? Peppermint fudge might be nice.

  17. Lynette

    Just made & sampled these. Omg! It was hard to resist not eating the whole entire thing, but I only let myself have 2 pieces. What a treat! Tastes exactly like fudge. I just wish there was a way it could hold up in room temp or close to it, but it’s OK. The health factor (in comparison to regular fudge) is worth the minor sacrifice.:) Look forward to making & enjoying these in the summer, too, like u said!

    I made some inspired-by you bars today, if you want to check out my version here you go:

    and of course i mentioned your name :) have a good day!

  19. Jackie

    How do I print your recipes? I highlight them and print the selection but it takes forever to go to my printer. Is their a print button on your site that I am missing? Thanks for all you do and recipes you provide. They are great!

  20. dee

    I just bought Nutive organic coconut manna. Would this work instead of coconut oil?

  21. Susan

    First time I’ve ever used almond butter and coconut oil. Oh so yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

  22. Ann

    How about just putting almond butter on 90% dark chocolate and eating it that way?

  23. Jenna Helmuth

    This is seriously the best paleo desert I’ve ever had!!! Awesome! Thanks for the share!!!

  24. Kristen

    Hi! Do you use unsweetened chocolate or semi sweet? Thanks!

  25. Christina

    I made these this evening and they are absolutely delicious! I love how easy they were to make!

  26. Tessa

    Such an easy, yummy treat! I didn’t whizz up enough almond butter, so I topped it up with peanut butter. I also used raisins and cacao nibs on the top because I wanted to reduce the added sugar – very tasty! :)

  27. Tina

    How would I cream it together? Just with a mixer ??

  28. neomi

    it’s in the freezer, the challenge now is waiting the two hours. thank you for posting a recipe for a heathy dessert! keep it up food babe :)

  29. Julie

    Has anyone figured the macros on this recipe? fat, protein, carbs?

  30. Lynda

    I just made these using trilogy butter (walnuts, almonds & cashews) and cacao semi-sweet chips now the waiting!
