I didn’t know that I could love coconut oil any more than I already do, until I made this Nutty Chocolate Almond Butter Freezer Fudge.

It’s rich and it’s chocolatey, and it tastes like chocolate almond butter deliciousness that melts in your mouth (literally).

You know, I’ve seen freezer fudge and coconut oil based fudge on Pinterest but didn’t think much of it until a sponsored ad popped up on my Facebook.

Now normally I ignore all ads, and to be honest, I think they can be rather annoying. But this one caught my eye! It was a recipe for freezer fudge, from a company whose almond butter I just bought (clearly my recent purchase had been noticed by the internet haha).

When I realized how easy the recipe was, I needed to try it ASAP.

Why can’t all internet adds be recipes, by the way?!

I tweaked the recipe a bit to fit my tastes. I’m allergic to peanuts so I replaced the peanut butter with almond butter. I also really like chocolate, so adding cocoa powder and Enjoy Life chocolate chips (dairy free chocolate) was an obvious choice for me.

This is the type of recipe that can and should be tweaked to your preferences! Any type of nut butter would work, as well as more or less sweetener, and your choice of topping. I kept it simple for this recipe, but I think it would taste great with raisins, dried apricots, or shredded coconut.

I will definitely be trying more variations in the future.

What is great about this Nutty Chocolate Almond Butter Freezer Fudge is that it’s a bite sized pick-me-up that I do not feel guilty about eating.

Almond butter and coconut oil= healthy fats and antioxidants. 🙂

I have to say, this recipe is great for late night chocolate cravings. This is going to be key for my wedding diet 🙂

You can store it in the freezer or in the fridge.

I personally like having a little something waiting for me in the freezer… for so many reasons! 1) I know I don’t have to rush to eat it because it will last for a long time 2) it’s cold and thus melts in my mouth which is quite satisfying and 3) the extra crunch is so also very satisfying!

* Note: using almond butter with salt in it is delicious 🙂
