How do you keep fudge?

Whether you’re going to freeze your fudge, store it in a refrigerator or keep it at room temperature, the process begins with proper wrapping. Wrap each piece of fudge in waxed paper, then place the pieces in a sealable plastic bag or a Tupperware!

5 Ingredient Healthy Fudge

Prep Time 00:05 Cook Time 00:03 Yields 20 Pieces

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Line a 5" x 7" (or similar sized) glass container with parchment paper. Cut the parchment paper big enough so that the ends hang outside the glass container to create a sling to remove the fudge after it has cooled.
  2. In a medium sauce pan add chocolate chips, coconut oil, almond butter, almond milk and 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt. Turn the burner to the lowest setting and immediately begin stirring the chocolate mixture with a spatula to help it melt evenly.
  3. Once it has melted about half of the chocolate chips, switch to a whisk to combine mixture completely and smoothly. Take care not to scorch any of the chocolate by whisking constantly.
  4. After the mixture has become smooth and fully combined, remove from heat and whisk in vanilla.
  5. Pour chocolate into the parchment lined glass container and smooth top. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and place in refrigerator until set, at least two hours (but better overnight).
  6. Once it has completely set, take fudge out of container using the parchment sling and slice into desired portions.
  7. Store in the refrigerator or the freezer.

Recipe Notes

  • We recommend using dark chocolate chips. When using semi-sweet, the texture was softer.

Chocolate Matzo Crack: 3 Ways (Gluten-Free!)

Prep Time 00:10 Cook Time 00:10 Serves 8-10

Ingredients

For ALL Versions

  • 1-10.5oz box Yehuda Gluten Free Matzo-Style Squares
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips

For Peanut Butter Swirl Matzo Crack

  • 1/3 cup natural-style peanut butter at room temperature

For Trail Mix Matzo Crack

  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice 
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
  • Coarse sea salt

For Chocolate Toffee Crunch Matzo Crack

Directions

For Chocolate Peanut Butter Version:

  1. Make sure peanut butter is at room temperature, if not heat until warmed through and soft. Set aside.
  2. Prepare rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Line baking sheet with matzo squares until it is fully covered, making sure to overlap the matzo slightly so there are no gaps between them. You will have to cut some squares to make it all fit. Note: If your matzo is cracked, it’s okay! Just lightly layer edges.
  3. Melt chocolate in a double-boiler or as desired, and pour over matzo squares. Using an off-set spatula spread the chocolate evenly over the matzo.  
  4. Dollop peanut butter over chocolate while it is still warm, and use toothpick to make the swirl design.
  5. Let the finished chocolate matzo set in the refrigerator (20 minutes or freezer 10 minutes) before cutting or breaking apart. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

For Chocolate Trail Mix Version:

  1. Prepare rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Line baking sheet with matzo squares until it is fully covered, making sure to overlap the matzo slightly so there are no gaps between them. You will have to cut some squares to make it all fit. Note: If your matzo is cracked, it’s okay! Just lightly layer edges, don’t fully overlap!
  2. Melt chocolate in a double-boiler or as desired, and pour over matzo squares. Using an off-set spatula spread the chocolate evenly over the matzo.
  3. Sprinkle nuts, raisins, coconut and seeds evenly over the chocolate. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of flaky sea salt if you'd like! 
  4. Let the finished chocolate matzo set in the refrigerator (20 minutes or freezer 10 minutes) before cutting or breaking apart. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

For Toffee Version:

  1. Prepare rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Line baking sheet with matzo squares until it is fully covered. You will have to cut some squares to make it all fit. Note: If your matzo is cracked, it’s okay! Just lightly layer edges, don’t fully overlap, toffee will connect your pieces!
  2. Make the toffee (see directions below).
  3. Once you've poured your toffee over the matzo and have spread it, scatter the chocolate chips directly on the hot toffee covered matzo squares. Leave it to sit for 5 minutes, and then use an off-set spatula spread it to cover the toffee.
  4. Let the finished chocolate matzo set in the refrigerator (20 minutes or freezer 10 minutes) before cutting or breaking apart. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Toffee Directions:

  1. In a medium sauce pan, before heating, add your maple sugar (you can use coconut sugar but we prefer maple sugar), 1 tablespoon of water and vanilla extract. Add butter and turn the heat to medium.
  2. As the sugar begins to melt, immediately begin to stir the mixture with a spatula, in one direction only. You are doing this to prevent any sugar from burning and to help both the butter and sugar to melt evenly. Once most of the sugar and butter has melted, switch to a whisk and gently whisk the mixture together, in one direction, until it is fully emulsified. If you *do not* start whisking right away, the toffee may not come together.
  3. Once it is fully melted and emulsified, stop whisking. Continue to cook the toffee over medium-low heat, without disturbing, until it reaches a temperature of 290 degrees with a candy thermometer. This took us about 10 minutes, but watch to avoid burning.
  4. Turn off heat, and add salt. Slowly whisk until combined.
  5. Carefully pour toffee over matzo. Using an offset spatula spread the toffee evenly.
  6. Continue with step above to spread your chocolate.

Recipe Notes

  • Pro Tip: If leftover toffee gets stuck to your pot, add water and bring to a boil. This will loosen the candy. 
How do I melt chocolate with a double boiler?
  1. Add 1” of water to a medium saucepan or pot and bring to a very gentle simmer.
  2. Place a heat-safe bowl on top of the pot so that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water.
  3. Add the chopped chocolate to the bowl and stir occasionally with a spatula until smooth and melted.
