I love fudge, but since going lactose-free, it has been a bit difficult to find a good recipe for it. The one I used to make all the time is amazing, but it’s made with condensed milk, which has become a no-no for me.
So, I had to find something new. Today’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge is both dairy-free and low fodmap, which is great for sensitive tummies. However, it can be enjoyed by anyone, as it tastes delicious.
If you like the classic peanut butter-chocolate combination, you are in for a treat. The peanut butter layer is smooth, sweet and nutty, while the dark chocolate layer is crunchy and slightly bitter. The perfect blend of flavours and textures for me.
It doesn’t harm that this recipe comes together pretty quickly as well. So, what are you waiting for?? Run into the kitchen to make it, and don’t forget to check out my video recipe and to leave a comment to let me know how you like it!
