This recipe for fudge candy is a better than eating sugary treats as an alternative because it is full of peanut butter goodness with healthy fats and perfect for everyone in the family.

Peanut butter is very high in vitamin B6, which helps in maintaining blood sugar within the normal range. 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 and turns it to a smooth paste. You can store this peanut butter in your fridge and use it 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 perfect, glossy and creamy homemade fudge. Successful fudge-making requires heating and cooling the mixture to precise temperatures and ensuring that the ingredients do not burn during the process. The secret lies in using a good quality candy thermometer to be able to measure the temperature when aiming to make that perfect dreamy fudge. Another important tip that helps while making fudge is to keep stirring while heating it in the microwave. Lastly, have the patience to let it cool enough before cutting it into squares.
One of the most interesting things about fun desserts like a fudge recipe is that there are so many variations and ingredients you can add to make it taste the way you like it. You can add other healthy nut butter like almond or pumpkin seed butter. Throw in some chia seeds or sunflower seeds to make this fudge recipe a bit more crunchy. You can also add melted dark chocolate which makes this fudge healthier. Once the peanut butter is added with other ingredients, pour melted chocolate and then take a skewer and run it through the mixture to create a marble effect. Dark chocolate is a good 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 a big way. The fascinating science behind Vanilla extract is that apart from its sweet scent when added to desserts, it blends the ingredients to make it taste richer and fuller. Even though it can be more expensive than the artificial flavor, it is worth the money because of how superior it makes the dessert recipes taste especially in fudges and cakes.
