Beans van Zyl, mommy-extraordinaire and healthy recipe developer, features a foodie blog and instagram profile that we regularly drool over. She is a firm believer that wholesome eating for the whole family can not only be good for you but delicious too! We were thrilled when she agreed to share her decadent Frozen Fudge recipe on this blog.
These lovely little peanut butter treats are so incredibly delicious and easy to make. This recipe is wonderful to make with the kids because all you need to do is mix the ingredients together, pour them into cupcake cases or ice molds and place in the freezer until set. We have a constant supply of this “fudge” in our freezer. – Beans van Zyl
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 Tbsp honey (or maple syrup)
1 tsp vanilla
Line a loaf tin with baking paper, or line a mini muffin pan with mini paper cupcake cases. Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring after each time. Once all of the ingredients are melted and well incorporated, spoon it into your prepared tin or cupcake cases. Place in the freezer for atleast 30 minutes, or until solid and set. Slice into blocks, eat and enjoy. Store the blocks in an airtight container in the freezer.
Silicone moulds also work really well and they are nice and easy to just pop the fudge out. Any nut butter will work just as well as peanut butter. Add chopped nuts, cranberries, cacao nibs, cacao powder for a variation.
Your kids can help you to measure each ingredient and mix it until smooth and incorporated.
If you are using a muffin tray, let them line the tray with the paper cases and practice counting with them. Depending on their age, they can count in 2’s, they can estimate how many cases they think will fit into the tray, you can teach them about a dozen as there are 12 holes in the tray, and then about how a bakers dozen is 13 as you should always make one extra, just for incase. OR use your imagination with teaching possibilities, they learn best when they are involved and having fun.
