chocolate and peanut butter date fudge

  • 330g fresh dates, pitted
  • ⅓ cup (95g) natural smooth peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 80g 70% dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon white or black sea salt flakes (optional), to serve
  1. Place the dates, peanut butter and vanilla in a food processor and process for 2–3 minutes or until smooth and mixture comes together. Press the mixture into a 20cm x 10cm lightly greased loaf tin lined with non-stick baking paper, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon. 
  2. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir occasionally until the chocolate has melted. Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter caramel, smoothing the top with a palette knife. Sprinkle with salt, if using, and freeze for 30 minutes or until firm. 
  3. Using a hot knife, cut into pieces to serve.  Makes 32. 

TIP:
+ The fudge pieces will keep refrigerated or frozen in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
