Chocolate peanut butter fudge is a delicious, easy and healthy snack that can be made at home without much fuss. The nice thing about this recipe is that it has very little refined sugar, the exception being what is already in the chocolate. However, anyone you give this too won't know the difference. This is a good way to quickly impress someone with your dessert-making prowess and/or a handy tool for bribing people into becoming your friend.

Step 1: Ingredients

To make this you will need:

1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter *
1 Cup Dark Chocolate **
2 Tablespoons Light Agave
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Pinch sea salt

* It is recommended that you try to get the peanut butter with the fewest additives.

** It is also recommended that you get the darkest chocolate that you can find. I used 72% dark chocolate.

Step 2: Prepare a Tray

Line a medium-sized rectangular pan (8" square or so) with parchment paper. Set this aside for the moment.

This whole cooking process happen rather quickly, so you will want to do this first.

Step 3: Melt the Chocolate

Over a medium-low flame, melt the chocolate in a medium sauce pan until smooth.

Step 4: Mix in the Peanut Butter

As soon as the chocolate is melted, mix in the peanut butter until combined.

Step 5: Mix in the Rest

Remove the pan from the flame and mix in the agave, vanilla and salt until combined. It is now ready to pour.

Step 6:

Pour the batter quickly because it will immediately begin to harden once it is removed from the flame.

Spread it out nice and evenly in the pan, and then refrigerate it for at least two hours.

Step 7: Cut

Once it is done chilling in the refrigerator for a few hours, take it out and cut it into squares or a shape of your choice.

Step 8:

The fudge is now ready to be enjoyed!

Remember to share and not eat it all yourself in one sitting.
