Paleo Chocolate Macadamia Nut Fudge

The other day I made some fresh macadamia nut butter and I wanted to make something different with the left over. I came up with the idea of making a healthy version of chocolate fudge and my main ingredient was the macadamia nut butter. The fudge came out so creamy and delicious and best of all, it is paleo and low carb friendly with no added sugars.

    Because macadamia nuts are so expensive here on the west coast of Canada, is it okay to substitute something like almond butter?

      you can substitute the macadamia nut butter for any nut butter of your choose. It will just taste different…Making this with hazelnuts would be pretty good too, I think I am going to try it next 🙂

        Thank you very much! I asked about almond butter because I know we have some in the house right now. 🙂 Also I just realized that there is no baking- most excellent! 😀

    How many nuts does it take to make 1/2 cup of butter? Anyone know?

      1 cup of macadamia nuts makes 1/2 cup of butter

    I just made this yesterday with hazelnut butter, a sprinkle of ground cloves and a bit of shredded coconut. I can’t even describe how decadent it was! The cloves really helped bring out the chocolatey aroma. I also added a bit of liquid stevia. All I can say is: WOW!

    I just made these using half almond butter, half macadamia butter, shredded coconut on top and two dates instead of honey… divine!
    Thanks so much for this recipe-cannot wait to try some more!

    When would you put the shredded coconut? Before going into freezer or when it is already set?

    • adriana April 28, 2015 at 3:34 pm Reply

      Susie, this recipe does not call for shredded coconut, but if you want to add it, mix it in along with everything before going in the freezer.
