Easy, quick, and delicious. This freezer fudge recipe was an experiment of deliciousness. Fudge that stays in the freezer? It’s fudge that I am pleasantly surprised about because I forget it’s there while looking around for a sweet snack. You know, opening the freezer is a rare thing.
Just a small square of this freezer fudge is enough to satisfy a sweet tooth for chocolate. It is filling enough for a snack and I can feel good about eating it.
You will notice this is heavily coconut oil. Don’t be afraid of the coconut oil. It provides us with healthy saturated fats that are used for energy. See my post about why fats are good for you and also healthiest fats to cook with. It also helps that coconut oil is solid at room temperature and freezer. Traditional freezer fudge recipes have sweetened condensed milk, refined sugar, and margarine. Those are things you don’t want to consume due to added preservatives and lack of nutrition.

Benefits: There are numerous benefits of coconut oil. Coconut oil’s saturated fat content provides satiety and is good for our cell membranes.

It also improves gut health with allowing more nutrient absorption.
