The Christmas holiday is by far one of my favorites. It’s not just the festivities and I love, but it’s also the amazing sense of togetherness and benevolence that this year brings. It reminds people of what we should be doing all year long: giving! And we’re not talking gift giving, but having a generous spirit towards others in all aspects.

One of my favorite things to do around Christmas in the past was to bake a bunch of treats for family, friends, and neighbors. I didn’t get around to doing a whole lot of that baking this year since I ended up having laparoscopy surgery last week.

I’ve been healing up great, but it definitely threw off my normal routine for a bit! I may still try to do some cookie baking for our neighbors this weekend between house cleaning.

My Grandma’s fudge was always a big hit in our house growing up, but once dairy allergies set in, we had to stop making it. Several years ago I made up this alternative that is allergy friendly and a bit healthier, and my whole family can have this!

I love the flavor combination of peanut butter and chocolate (Reese’s anyone?), but both my kids are allergic to peanuts. So I made up this version using SunButter, which has great flavor and is an excellent stand-in for peanut butter in this recipe.

This recipe can be paleo if you make it with paleo chocolate chips or skip the chocolate chips altogether! The fudge tastes great either way 🙂

    • Hi Erin! You can try using solid palm oil instead of coconut oil in this recipe. It might not be as firm, but that would be the next best substitute for coconut oil in this recipe.

  1. Does this taste similar to peanut butter. Both of my kids are allergic to peanuts and tree nuts too. It would be nice to make recipes that normally call for peanut butter using the sunbutter.

    • Sunbutter does taste similar to peanut butter and makes a good tasting substitute. One thing to keep in mind is that when baking with Sunbutter, pH changes can cause it to turn green (I think baking soda can cause this). It is one of the best seed butters that my whole family can eat

  2. This looks awesome! We have dietary restrictions too and this was just what I was looking for so I can make and everyone in my house can enjoy.
    I have a couple questions for you: did you use coconut oi or coconut butter? And was your sunbutter the original one or the one sweetened with sugar?
    Thanks for sharing, I will be making this soon!

    • Hi Ana, I used coconut oil in this recipe, but you can use either coconut oil or coconut butter. I used the sweetened Sunbutter, but you can use any favorite nut/seed butter, sweetened or not. I am glad you found this recipe! Let me know how it turns out for you : )
