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 may have been a pure fluke, but in any case, I am sharing the recipe with you all, so you can try and let me know. The only downside is that it needs to be kept in the freezer as it melts very quickly! I used my favourite healing foods cinnamon, maca powder, turmeric, ginger, peanuts and cacao. There is a lot of nut butter so this one is definitely an indulgent treat, but it is so rich and creamy you only need a small piece to feel satisfied. Why not give the gift of giving and make a batch for a friend or loved one to brighten up their day!
