Peanut Butter Fudge

Peanut Butter fudge

I had a few requests to make fudge as part of my Food is Medicine range. I have never made Fudge before, so I was excited to give it a crack. After googling some basic fudge recipes, I got creative in the kitchen and came up with this concoction and it literally is one of the best things I have ever made! It does needs to be kept in the freezer or fridge as it melts very quickly! I used my favourite functional foods cinnamon, maca powder, turmeric, ginger, peanuts and cacao.
