Chocolate SunButter Fudge

Chocolate SunButter No-Bake Fudge

Making fudge is a holiday tradition in many families. I tried to find out the history of this and why it’s so popular this time of year and I discovered … nothing. Yeah, Google failed me today. My guess is that fudge is a popular holiday confection because it’s pretty inexpensive to make and universally loved. Pantry staples like butter, sugar, and chocolate come together to create a treat that is classic and timeless and pretty versatile, too. Fudge can come in all kinds of varieties, like peppermint, white chocolate, peanut butter, and more. Today I’d like to share my recipe for Chocolate SunButter No-Bake Fudge.

As the name mentions, this fudge is made with SunButter. If you’re not familiar, SunButter is a sunflower seed butter. It’s a delicious nut-free alternative to peanut butter, which is perfect for recipes like this fudge that will be given as gifts to coworkers, neighbors, and the like. Why not make something allergy-friendly (especially such a serious allergy like peanuts) when you’re going to share the treats with others? You never know who they will share the treats with and it’s a good feeling to make something that more people can safely enjoy.

This fudge is a great gift for others, but my gift to you with this fudge recipe: it only uses 5 ingredients (not including salt)!

    Its such a disappointment to frequently find a recipe claiming to be allergen free only to find it uses powdered sugar. Powdered suger is made with cornstarch.

    Corn.

    One of the first things tested for, and primary triggers for eczema. Corn syrup. Cornstarch. Anything containing them as an ingredient, isn’t really and shouldn’t be promoted as allergy free.

      Hi there!
      For this recipe, we’ve mentioned in the post that it’s allergy-friendly, primarily because it’s gluten-free and nut-free. As far as corn goes, I typically use Wholesome sugar in all my recipes, as they have been one of my recipe development partners for years, and their powdered sugar uses tapioca starch, not corn starch. It’s entirely possible to make this recipe without cornstarch and even without dairy if you wanted to use dairy-free butter sticks and dairy-free chocolate chips. Here’s a link to Wholesome’s cornstarch-free powdered sugar: https://shop.wholesomesweet.com/Organic-Powdered-Sugar/p/WHSM-320041&[email protected]
