"This is such an easy recipe to throw together with a few ingredients. It always gets rave reviews. The recipe uses peanut butter, but you can substitute any nut butter or sunflower seed butter. A favorite of mine is to use hazelnut butter. Slice into triangles and top with some whipped cream (I use chilled coconut milk) and orange zest."

I have made this recipe a few times and it is always amazing! Always requests it at family gatherings. It is super quick to make and put together; I always use a 6x9 pan and the pieces come out pretty thick. Make sure that you use real maple syrup, not the Mrs. Butterworth's kind, I could see that giving an off maple flavor. This recipe has never failed for me.

This is not a 'five-star vegan recipe' but a straight five-star recipe. I used: An 8oz unsweetened (bitter) baker's chocolate cocoa bar. Adam's (all natural) creamy p/b. Trader Joe's Grade B Organic Maple Syrup. I got rave reviews from everyone that tried the fudge. I cut it smaller than the listed serving size due to the richness. It has a deeper-darker taste that is best enjoyed in small savory bites.

I used 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, regular creamy peanut butter and Grade A Maple syrup. This may or may not be the best fudge in the world, depending on your definition of fudge, but it did what it was supposed to do. Only licking the cooled spoon silenced the chocolate craving monster until next time. I didn't find the maple syrup overwhelming at all. In fact you might really have to pay attention to discover it's there. Stir until everything is melted and combined. Pour in a dish and refrigerate. Couldn't be easier. A child could make it. Good job!
