A few days ago, my sister sent me a twenty-minute video of someone making a chocolate cake. Now, I don’t even particularly like chocolate cake, and I’m not much of a baker, but I was fascinated by the whole process of watching a master chef produce a masterpiece. Since then, I’ve watched dozens of dessert-making videos—ginger tarts and pancake cakes and almond croissants and blueberry scones. Desserts aren’t really my jam (harhar) though, so none of these really tempted me beyond wanting to perhaps try a neat method or trick.
I stumbled across a modest little video that explained how to make a series of vegan desserts with no more than two ingredients. Once I spotted the two-ingredient, peanut-butter fudge, “…our eyes locked, and someone threw away the key” (apologies to Annie Dillard).
Now, I did add a third ingredient because I’m extra like that!
So here’s all you do:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge!!!
Combine in a pyrex bowl…
2/3 cup of peanut butter
1 – 6.6 ounce can of condensed, sweetened coconut milk
Microwave for a couple of minutes and stir until smooth. Pour into a 9X9 pan or a pie plate and freeze for an hour.
Next, melt in the microwave…
1 bar 70% dark chocolate
Stir until smooth and pour over the peanut butter mixture. Pop back in the freezer for another hour.
Once the fudge is set, cut carefully into squares and there you go….FUDGE!!!
