This recipe is ridiculously easy to make with only five ingredients.  It’s made with good quality ingredients that are all paleo friendly making this chocolate peppermint fudge gluten-free as well as dairy-free!


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  • 3/4 cup cashew butter
  • 2-3 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • Optional: crushed peppermint candies, sea salt


  1. To prepare, add aluminum foil to a 9x5 baking loaf
  2. In a medium saucepan melt coconut oil then whisk in cacao powder, almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla and peppermint extracts
  3. When there are no lumps and everything is smooth, remove from heat and add mixture to baking tin. The mixture will be thin.
  4. Set in the fridge for about 20 minutes then add crushed peppermint candies. I do this after 20 minutes so the peppermint pieces don't sink to the bottom in the thin mixture
  5. Return to fridge for about 2 hours
  6. Cut into 12 pieces and serve!I


*Cook time does not include time needed to set in fridge.
