Healthy Peppermint Fudge Recipe
Prep time
Total time
This sugar free, no cook, healthy fat filled peppermint fudge is so decadent and delicious that you'll swear it came from a high end candy shop.
Serves: about 48, 1" cubes
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup coconut oil, warmed to liquid state (I prefer the refined)
  • ½-2/3 cup gentle sweet, or equivalent of your favorite sweetener (see chart here)
  • 6-8 drops or to taste purepeppermint essential oil- your favorite brand, or 1-2 drops peppermint candy oil, OR 1 teaspoon peppermint extract (a distant third choice that I don't recommend for best results)
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder, this is my favorite brand
  • ½ cup almond butter- a creamy brand. I like Aldi's
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine softened butter, liquid coconut oil, sweetener, and 6 drops of a good food grade peppermint essential oil (or 1 tsp peppermint extract, but I by FAR recommend the oil).
  2. Stir well until fully blended.
  3. Set ⅓ of this mixture aside in another bowl.
  4. To the rest of the mixture, add cocoa and almond butter. Stir until well combined.
  5. Pour & spread into a pie plate or a square glass dish. I use an 8x6 pyrex glass storage container with the lid. 8x8 or smaller works best.
  6. Gently spoon the white peppermint fudge over the chocolate fudge mixture, and swirl the two together with a fork or knife.
  7. Refrigerate to set. When fully chilled, cut with a knife, and enjoy!
