Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bars (DF, GF)

These are SOOOOOOOO good - I can't stop eating them.  My co-workers LOVED them also !!!  The PERFECT combination - chocolate and peanut butter !!! I used crunchy peanut butter, so there was also a crunch from the nuts.

Adapted from this recipe.

1 and 1/2 cup dates
1 cup peanut butter (no sugar) - I used crunchy
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Put in an 8x8 pan and pat down.  Put in freezer for a couple hours to firm.  I left mine in the freezer overnight before I had any.  I also left it in the freezer and just took out a few pieces at a time and let them warm up to room temperature.

My favorite food processor is the  KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor
For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender

  1. Hmm, I used up all my dates making date syrup. Do you think I could substitute the date syrup for the dates in this recipe? I'm guessing use less, or find some other way to thicken it...

    1. Hi Becca,
      Yes...I think you could use date syrup - like you said - just use less. I would start with 1/2 to 3/4 cup and then add more as needed until you can form balls/bars out of the mixture.
      I hope they turn out good and you enjoy them !!!!
      THANKS !!! - Denise
