This 4 ingredient fudge is super quick and easy to make and is promised to satisfy your sweet tooth. As a busy commuter college student, I am always looking for quick and affordable recipes to incorporate into my weekly meal-prep. I am a sucker for any delicious recipe that has 5 ingredients (or less) and minimal directions. When a recipe involves minimal overall prep, there is no reason not to make it! I love preparing this recipe during my Sunday meal-prep so that I have pre-portioned healthier desserts for the week. Preparing and portioning the fudge out helps makes sure that I don’t overindulge in its chocolatey peanut butter goodness. However, overindulging is hard with this fudge, as it’s super filling and rich. It’s hard to eat more than one or two bites because the ingredients in this recipe are incredibly satiating. Another benefit to this 4 ingredient fudge recipe is that it’s gluten-free and plant-based (if you use dairy-free chocolate). Because it’s gluten-free and plant-based, it is safe to make and serve to your vegan, plant-based, or gluten-free friends!

*Try topping the fudge with coconut flakes or chocolate chips for an added twist!

*Don’t like coconut flour? I’ve successfully substituted it out for almond and oat flour on several occasions.

*Have a peanut allergy? Try substituting the peanut butter out for almond, sunflower seed, or cashew butter.
