  • Feel free to add in nuts if you like. I made some plain for my daughter and some with chopped almonds because my hubby loves almonds. Also, make sure to measure correctly. If you add too much coconut butter, it can make the fudge get too soft at room temperature. I let my fudge sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to really harden and then removed it to get back to room temperature. It became the perfect soft, yet firm, fudge texture. I recommend preparing it the day before if you are making it for a party, chill in the fridge, then remove it 30 minutes or so before the party to soften. Depending on the humidity in your area, time may vary on it softening.


  1. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with clear plastic wrap. I don’t like parchment paper because it is kind of stiff to use for fudge. Just lightly spray the pan before placing the plastic wrap in the pan, so it sticks to the sides. Set aside.
  2. Add the chocolate chips to a double boiler over the stove or use the microwave. If using the microwave, use a large mug or a small bowl and heat it for 30 seconds, stir and then 15 second intervals until it is about 90% melted, stirring after each time. You don’t want to burn the chocolate. Stir the chocolate quickly until it is melted and smooth.
  3. Stir the coconut butter into the melted chocolate. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. Pour in the prepared pan and sprinkle with sea salt or any nuts if you wish. Place in the fridge to set and harden for a couple of hours. Once it’s set you can remove it from the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes (your climate may require longer) and it will become the perfect soft fudge texture. You can leave it at room temperature. I prefer it at room temperature because it’s the perfect fudge texture. If you store it in the fridge, remove it to set out and soften. Note: Depending on your climate, the fudge may get too soft if left out too long at room temperature, because the coconut butter will soften.
