Salted Almond Butter Freezer Fudge

Add salt.

 

I am a devout nut-butter eater and like devouring nut butters in ANY form. So when I came across this Salted Almond Butter Freezer Fudge recipe, I instantly ran to the kitchen to make it. I love love them, and I so shared them with a fellow friend / parent from Cruzzie’s school. Later that day, I received three text messages from three other moms, requesting the recipe (friend #1 shared with friends #2-4). They are loved by all!  Enjoy!

Combine the wet mixture into the bowl with the almond butter. Stir until completely smooth and combined. It will be very runny. Do not worry.

 

With a spatula, spoon the almond butter mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth out. Place the pan, uncovered, on a flat surface in the freezer. Freeze for around 1 hour, or until the fudge is solid.

Remember to store in the freezer — or it will melt. And you will be sad. Yes, yes, this is a glamorous version of nut butter that is just frozen, but trust me, it is beyond delicious. You will love it.
