This delicious frozen chocolate chip fudge is so easy to make and requires just four ingredients, it actually reminds me a little bit of frozen cookie dough. I had made a couple of different versions of this freezer fudge, like this double chocolate and raspberry version or this festive gingerbread flavour, before it occurred to me that I hadn’t even created a basic chocolate chip flavour.

Rather than using chocolate chips in this recipe, I prefer to use a bar of dairy free chocolate that I chop up into chunks myself for a more indulgent feel. You only need to look at the ingredients to see that this isn’t traditional chocolate chip fudge, however, in terms of consistency and appearance fudge is what this most closely resembles. Consider this a ‘healthier,’ refined sugar free version of a classic!

If you wanted you could try making this chocolate chip fudge using dairy free dark or white chocolate in place of milk, (or even a combination of all three), however, I wanted to keep this nice and simple. If you are unable to eat nuts you can still enjoy this recipe using tahini in place of peanut butter – just ensure to avoid the oil when you are scooping the tahini out of the jar.

It is best to keep this in the freezer and just allow it a few minutes to thaw out before eating. I have pressed this into an 8″ x 8″ tray before, however, it results in a very thin fudge so I find it is better to press this into a tray with individual squares as you can create thicker chunks!

If you are conscious of your protein intake and fancy experimenting with some protein dessert recipes, why not try this Chocolate Chip Protein Fudge based on this recipe?
