It’s finally Spring break! Which means me, two toddlers and a newborn get to hang out all week. I bet you cringed reading that sentence. Thankfully we are stocked up on all sorts of crafts and activities. So there are lots of different things that can keep them entertained.
I just have to stay on top of feeding them. To help with the constant need for snacks, I like to create a charcuterie board filled with all sorts of foods that the girls can munch on throughout the day. I always like to add a sweet treat like this fudge to the plate!
This Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge has no added sugar and it’s a filling snack. With healthy fats and some protein. Yes they are made with yummy mini marshmallows, not the healthiest. But every kid deserves a fun snack like this once in a while.
What I love most about this recipe is the no added sugar. I let the mini marshmallows sweeten this recipe, and trust me! It is the perfect amount of sweetness to enhance the peanut butter flavour.
This recipe is also versatile, another bonus. You can switch up the nut butter if you prefer. I have successfully made these with almond butter and wow butter. But you can never go wrong with natural peanut butter.
The healthy fat in this recipe is the coconut oil. I prefer to used refined coconut oil; it does not have the coconut flavour. If you don’t have coconut oil you can use butter, but that is it. No other oils work. Coconut oil and butter are temperature sensitive. When you chill this fudge, the coconut oil or butter is what helps set it.
Now let’s getting baking!
Peanut Butter Marshmallow Fudge
- 2 cups Mini Marshmallows
- 1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter
- 1/4 cup Melted Refined Coconut Oil
- Pinch of Salt
- Prepare a small dish by greasing the bottom with butter/ coconut oil or parchment paper.
- Melt the coconut oil either in the microwave or stove top.
- In another large bowl add the peanut butter.
- Add the hot melted coconut oil to the peanut butter and salt. Whisk till combined and smoothed.
- Add your Marshmallows, and toss till completely coated.
- Add the fudge mixture to your prepared dish.
- Chill for two hours.
There you have it! A simple recipe that can stayed stored covered in the fridge for three days. I find after that the marshmallows get really hard.
