These Macadamia Fridge Fudge squares are an absolute hit in our home. The crunchy dark chocolate coating makes way for a decadent golden soft and creamy center – the perfect little chilled treat to satisfy a sweet summer tooth!
Macadamia nut butter is naturally sweet. So, no need to add large amounts of sugar. This helps keep blood sugar levels nice and balanced. The fat from the nut butter will release energy slower for longer, which means longer balanced play time. And THAT translates as a ‘win’ for anyone with little people around!
I am sure you can’t wait to make these at home. Please make them with your kids! They learn so much from being in the kitchen. Yes, it’s mostly messy, but ALWAYS heaps of fun.
Macadamia Fridge Fudge
- Melt the coconut oil in a bowl, then add all the ingredients (except the chocolate) and mix until well combined. Pour into a lined container, and place in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour. I used a lined 21cm x 21cm brownie tin. Your container will determine the thickness of the fudge layer.
- Bring a small pot with about 2cm of water to the boil. Turn down the heat and put a heat-proof bowl on top – it’s bottom should not touch the water. Add your medallions and stir every few seconds until you end up with glorious, glossy melted chocolate. Think ‘Charlie and the Chocolate factory’.
- Remove your chilled macadamia nut mixture from the fridge. Pour the melted chocolate mixture on top and return to the fridge to set.
- Cut into squares with a warm sharp knife. No need to make these big – a little goes a long way with nut butter treats. Keep refrigerated. They will keep well for up to a week in the fridge.
