Many parts of the country are racked with ice, snow, and freezing cold weather these days. Blizzards, ice storms, and cold fronts are the news of the day.

We all need a little sunshine in our lives, especially when the skies are dark and the temps frigid.

Might I suggest you get your sunshine in the form of fudge? A little unconventional, sure. But who doesn’t love fudge?

Where does the sunshine come in? In the form of sunflowers – after all, what is more sunny than a vibrant, beautiful orange sunflower? They practically scream warmth, sunshine, and happiness.

In this case, the fudge is made with sunflower seed butter – Sunbutter. And chocolate. Because no matter what’s going on, chocolate makes everything better!

Gluten Free Sunbutter Chocolate Fudge Recipe


5 tablespoons unsalted butter, use divided
2 cups light brown sugar
½ cup plus 3 tablespoons heavy cream, use divided
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup creamy Sunbutter
1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons corn syrup or agave


Line an 8-inch square cake pan with parchment paper with a 2 inch overhang of paper on all sides.

Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the brown sugar, ½ cup cream, and the vanilla. Bring to a boil. Let boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the Sunbutter and stir until smooth. Take off the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.

Put the Sunbutter mixture in a mixer preferably fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low speed and gradually add the powdered sugar. Mix until everything is incorporated and smooth. Put the mixture in the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

In a small saucepan, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter with the chocolate chips and corn syrup. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of cream and mix until smooth. Pour over the top of the Sunbutter fudge and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

Cut into small squares and serve.


Makes about 20 pieces of gluten free fudge, depending on size the squares are cut.
