An easy chocolate fudge recipe that makes a creamy fudge treat that is high in protein and has all the nourishment of nuts and dark chocolate. Made in under half an hour and only 2 ingredients.
This easy chocolate fudge recipe is the best dessert to find in your freezer, especially when it is made with healthier ingredients. Sure you can make fudge the traditional way with cream and chocolate, but making it with a healthy nut butter tastes as indulgent and is oh so much healthier.
Like most of my chocolate recipes, this is a no bake and no cook recipe, unless you count melting the chocolate for a minute in the microwave. And if you like this fudge, you'll love my easy fudge recipe and my peanut butter fudge, both made just as easily but with twists.

How to Make
It's easy to make just as the name says.
1. Put chocolate chips and all other ingredients in a glass pyrex measuring cup and microwave for 1 minute.
2. Stir and microwave again for 15 seconds. It should be all melted but if not repeat.

4. Chill the mold or pan in the refrigerator until they are firm. Molds might take longer to chill before you can remove the fudge.
How to Store
Keep the fudge chilled in the refrigerator until ready to eat. You can freeze it as well for months.
