Coconut, Peanut Butter Fudge
Servings: 64 pieces
Preparation Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Peanut Butter Layer:
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 pound cane sugar, powdered (I use Magic Bullet)
- 1/2 cup powdered milk
- 2/3 cup homemade coconut milk
- 6 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup cane sugar, powdered (I use Magic Bullet)
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons homemade coconut milk
- 1/2–1 teaspoon water, as needed
- 1/3 cup unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
Line an 8 x 8 x 2-inch square baking pan with waxed or parchment paper. Lightly grease with coconut oil or butter.
Peanut Butter Layer:
Heat peanut butter and butter together in a medium-size saucepan over low heat until melted. Stir in honey, water, and vanilla. Remove from heat.
Gradually stir in powdered cane sugar and powdered milk until blended. Knead with your hands, if necessary. Turn into the prepared pan and pat firmly to evenly cover bottom of the pan. Let cool, then score the top with a fork.
Heat the cream in small saucepan over low heat just until tiny bubbles appear around edge of the pan. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips, and let stand for about 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Pour chocolate over the peanut butter layer, spreading to cover completely. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
Stir powdered cane sugar, melted butter, coconut milk, and water (if needed) together in a small bowl. For best results, use an offset spatula to carefully spread the glaze over the top of chocolate layer. Sprinkle evenly with chopped peanuts, if desired.
Refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm enough to cut. Lift the fudge out of the pan and carefully remove the waxed paper. Cut into 64 small pieces. Small truffle cups or mini cupcake liners work well for gift giving, if desired. Place one piece of fudge into each liner and wrap in plastic wrap.
