Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge!  These sweet, chocolatey, peanut buttery squares are super dense, smooth and creamy with a perfect amount of crunch from the peanut coating…  it’s just like regular fudge, except it’s sugar free, high protein, high fiber, gluten free and vegan.

Mmmmmmm  *drools all over self*

When in doubt, make fudge.

That’s my motto.

Seriously, whenever I’m in a baking slump (aka, whenever all my cakes suck and never turn out the way I want them to), I turn to fudge.  It’s like a no fail dessert for me (fudge never fails us, people!).  I’ve made Peanut Butter Fudge, Coconut Fudge, Matcha Fudge, Nutella Fudge, a plethora of Fudge Protein Bars

Oh my gosh.  I think I have an addiction…

But it’s a healthy addiction, so I’m okay with that  😉

I recently received a bottle of Nourish, a whole foods powder made by Immortal Food.  Nourish is made with nutrient- and antioxidant-rich ingredients, including raw organic cacao, maca, hemp and reishi mushrooms (don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like mushrooms).  Plus, it’s got organic spirulina, beets, bananas, strawberries, raspberries and camu camu (fruit).  It’s also non-GMO, vegan, dairy-free, wheat-free and gluten-free.

Nourish is just what it sounds like — it’s nourishment in a bottle!  But in this case, it’s nourishment in fudge.

Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Fudge.

And it’s the freakin’ bomb.
