Salted Caramel Fudge: Chocolate fudge with a gooey salted caramel topping. You’d never guess this delicious dessert is made with only real food ingredients & is vegan, dairy free, & refined sugar free!
Hello! Tiffany from Feel Great in 8 back again with another insanely delicious recipe you can feel good about serving to your healthy kids! I am so excited to share this one with you!
It’s that time of year again – the holiday season when neighbor gifts, parties, and stockings will be full of refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and all kinds of ingredients you can’t pronounce. Don’t worry though, I have the perfect solution for you!
This salted caramel fudge is the perfect treat that you can share with your family or your neighbors and feel good about eating. It’s made without refined sugar or highly processed ingredients, and with heart healthy fats. Of course, you don’t want to eat the whole pan yourself, but you can indulge in this favorite holiday dessert without any guilt. It’s my gift to you.
Before I share the recipe, here are just a few quick tips…
- You’ll want to make the chocolate fudge and give it time to set in the refrigerator before adding the caramel topping. I added the caramel too quickly the first time and the two mixed together. Still delicious, but not as pretty as the gooey caramel layer on top.
- Store leftovers, if there are any, in the refrigerator or freezer. Both the fudge and the caramel will melt and get soft if left out too long.
- You can substitute any nut butter for the peanut butter in the fudge recipe. I only had chunky peanut butter, so I just put the peanut butter, honey, and coconut oil in my Blendtec for a quick blend before adding the other ingredients. The result was still fudge-y and delicious.
- To make this recipe vegan just use pure maple syrup instead of honey.
