It’s not just approved by Grandma, but everyone in the family is going to rave about it because it has two holy grail ingredients – chocolate and peanut butter. A recipe for fudge candy that’s healthy and homemade with just seven ingredients is unbelievable but true. Just plain everyday items from your kitchen pantry are what you need to make this recipe. You’re going to love the taste and texture of melted chocolate and smooth peanut butter together. Eating healthy need not be boring. There are so many smarter choices and tastier alternatives to eating fatty or sugary foods that you can substitute in recipes.
Peanut butter is loaded with good fats and protein that maintains blood sugar and helps in heart functioning. Peanut butter is also very high in vitamin B6, which is one of the essential vitamins your body needs. For optimum health benefits, always try to purchase peanut butter that is in pure form without any preservatives or additives like sugar, corn syrup, salt, canola or palm oil. What’s even better is if you go for organic peanut butter that is GMO-free. Alternately, you can also make peanut butter in your kitchen by blending roasted peanuts until the natural oil oozes when you churn the peanuts until smooth. Since a homemade peanut butter is free of preservatives, you can store it in an airtight jar in your fridge and use up to a week.
Even though making fudge seems like straightforward and easy to make, it still requires a bit of precision to get the right batch of a perfect, glossy and creamy homemade fudge. The secret to good fudge-making lies in heating and cooling the mixture to exact temperatures and making sure that the ingredients do not burn during the process. Also, investing in a good quality candy thermometer will help you gauge the temperature when trying to make that perfectly dreamy and glossy fudge. Another important tip that helps while making fudge is to have the patience to let it cool enough before stirring. One of the most interesting things about fun desserts like a fudge recipe is that there are so many healthy ingredients you can add to it that will not only enhance the flavor but also make it more healthy. Like for instance, you can add nuts and seeds to make this fudge recipe to give it a crunch. You can also add dark or bittersweet chocolate chips that have a higher percentage or at least 70 percent of cacao in it. Dark chocolate is a healthy source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health and contains fiber and iron. Likewise, try not to use artificial vanilla flavor in dessert recipes. It is better to stick to the real vanilla extract because it impacts the flavor in the chocolate. It is a fact that vanilla is more than just a flavor. The interesting science behind Vanilla extract is that apart from its sweet scent when added to dessert recipes, it binds the ingredients together to make it taste richer and fuller.
