How’s that for a Happy Valentine’s Day?
Okay, time for a quick poll: are you a fan of Valentine’s Day or not so much? Do you think it’s:
- A) a greeting card holiday
- B) a romantic, meaningful holiday
- C) kinda of both
- D) not sure, but think it’s a great time to show your love anyway.
- Or E) all the other options I didn’t think of and foolishly forgot to list?
It was a veritable candy factory in my house! I even started laying the ground work for what would become these amazing chocolate coconut truffles.
Anywho, back to what I was saying, how do you feel about V-Day? I, myself, am totally a-okay with Valentine’s Day. I don’t get super jazzed about it, nor do I loathe it, or anything. But I will say that I LOVE, love, love one part of V-Day: the CHOCOLATE!!!
Any excuse for chocolate and/or love (same thing) is a great excuse in my book!
So whether you love all of this love business, you’ll most certainly love my 2 Ingredient 5 Minute Homemade Fudge Recipe. Alright, so let’s take it back to where this fudge came from…
Ages ago, I craved a piece of paleo vegan fudge like it was nobody’s business. To my dismay, all the fudge recipes I could find required refrigeration. And for the most part, the second that fudge got outside, into the very mild room temperature air, it would start to melt! All too messy and stain-inducing for my taste.
So I started eyeballing the fudge element in the topping of these recipes: peanut butter cup oatmeal bars, no bake paleo chocolate pecan bars, no bake chocolate peanut butter bars, no bake paleo chocolate almond butter bars. I also, in the mean time, created my own fridge-required, but so tasty I couldn’t not share it, vegan chocolate peanut butter freezer fudge and my paleo chocolate almond butter fudge cups.
All while chomping on these delicious plant-based fudge treats, I toyed around with the proportions of two simple ingredients: almond butter and chocolate chips. I tested 1:1, 1:2, 2:3, and all kinds of ratios that made my mind boggle.
And then I FOUND IT. The one that worked.
Those fudge recipes were SO good… but also, SO seasonal. That’s the thing that totally bothers me about seasonal stuff—the shelf-life. The second Fall or Christmas is over, you can forgettaboutit! And you do… Wah wah.

- Pour this mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Tap the pan to create an even layer. Optionally, use a spoon to make swirls on top.
- Transfer pan to freezer. Freeze for 40-60 minutes or until completely firm. Remove from freezer and slice into 18 squares. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
- Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark area at room temperature, or in the refrigerator, for up to 2-3 weeks.
- Freezing instructions: store in an airtight, freezer-friendly container in the freezer for 1-2 months. Very firm, but enjoyable straight out of the freezer. If preferred, thaw for 10 minutes.
- Nutrition info: is an estimate based on 18 total squares.
-*Substitution Notes: You can use any nut or seed butter you'd like! Ex: sunflower, cashew, peanut, etc. Just make sure it's creamy and natural. The flavor of the nut/seed butter you use can affect the flavor of the fudge. Almond butter is best because the flavor is so mild. 🙂
