Is there anything more pleasing than chilled, velvety, melt-in-the-mouth fudge? This two-tone fudge is a real crowd-pleaser. The salty and creamy peanut butter fudge is studded with our raw cacao nibs whilst the bottom layer is a rich smooth and velvety raw cacao layer to sink your teeth into, made with our rich raw cacao powder.

It’s a no-bake treat of course, and you only need a handful of ingredients. As always, our fudge is gluten-free, vegan-friendly and literally takes 15 minutes to whip up!

  • Extra Elements for Life raw cacao nibs
  • A scattering of edible flowers (optional)


  1. Line a small square loaf tin with greaseproof paper and set aside.
  2. Start with the raw cacao layer by simply melting all the raw cacao fudge layer ingredients together in a small pan. Pour into your prepared tin, leave to cool for a short time and then set in the freezer for a couple of minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk all the peanut butter fudge ingredients together and add in your cacao nibs at the last stage. Fold in gently. Freeze for a further 5 minutes or until totally set and then slice it up and enjoy!

Notes: This fudge will last for up to 3 months in the freezer, we used pip and nut peanut butter in this recipe so for best results stick to a slack and drippy version of peanut butter which is made up of only peanuts and salt.
