Tahini Chocolate Chip Freezer Fudge

August 29, 2021

This Tahini Freezer Fudge is creamy, dreamy, chocolate-y, and the perfect healthy treat! If a quick, healthy, delicious square of fudge is what you’re craving, then look no further, because this is the fudge of your DREAMS. This recipe has a permanent home in my freezer, and utilizes one of my all-time favorite ingredients: tahini!

I’m back with another tahini recipe, and I’m so excited to share it with you. If you’ve spent any time on my blog before, then you’ll probably know that I love- no, wait, I’m OBSESSED- with tahini. I use it in everything from my Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies to my Tahini Caesar Dressing. My personal motto is, if it’s creamy, then it’s gotta be good with tahini!

So, when I found myself craving some chocolate fudge on a random afternoon, I thought to myself: there’s gotta be a way to make fudge with tahini. And lo and behold, my Tahini Chocolate Chip Freezer Fudge was born!

This fudge is creamy thanks to the tahini, chocolate-y thanks to loads of dairy-free chocolate chips, and a little salty thanks to the flaky salt. It’s a burst of different flavors in your mouth, which I think makes for an exciting bite. If you’ve yet to experiment with a tahini-based dessert yet, then you need to run to your freezer and make this RIGHT NOW!

What is Tahini?

Tahini is a paste made out of ground sesame seeds that originated in Persia in the 13th century, and has become a staple in many Middle Eastern kitchens. It’s used in everything from Turkish desserts to Greek pitas to even fudge! Tahini only became available in America in the 1940’s, and has been slowly growing in popularity thanks to the wellness community. If you’ve never tried tahini, you can think of it as a salty, nut-free nut butter!

Tahini tends to vary in texture. Some are more liquid-y, and others are thicker. For this recipe, and for most of my tahini-based recipes, you’ll want a more liquid-y one. If you’ve followed me for a while, then you’ll know that I love my Soom Foods tahini, but if you can’t get your hands on that one, then I recommend either the Sprouts brand or Whole Foods brand tahinis!

What You Need to Make This Tahini Chocolate Chip Freezer Fudge

If you’re someone who loves to bake, then you’ll love this recipe, because chances are, you’ll already have the ingredients on-hand!  This tahini chocolate chip freezer fudge is so simple and easy to make. I just know you’re going to love it!

  • Tahini: Of course, the star of this dish is the tahini! I use my favorite Soom Foods tahini, and it works perfectly in this recipe.
  • Coconut Oil: Make sure it’s refined coconut oil, and that it’s melted! These are both important for getting the consistency of the fudge correct.
  • Maple Syrup: Maple Syrup is my favorite natural sweetener, and gives this fudge the perfect amount of sweetness!
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: I use unsweetened Cocoa Powder to give this fudge it’s chocolate-y flavor, sans the refined sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract: Vanilla extract is essential in any dessert recipe. Don’t skip this!
  • Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips: I love using dairy-free chocolate chips, to keep this recipe vegan-friendly!
  • Flaky Salt: Flaky salt is the perfect garnish here, because it helps to cut through the sweetness and add the perfect, salty balance.

 

How to Make This Tahini Chocolate Chip Freezer Fudge

  1. Grease a 9×4 loaf pan and line it with parchmenet paper, so that the fudge lifts out easily. You can also use an 8×8 square dish, for thinner fudge.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process until you have a thick paste. You might need to open the cover and scrape down the sides a few times, to make sure everything is well-incorporated.
  3. Remove the blade from the food processor and stir in the chocolate chips, mixing well with a spoon.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the pan, pressing down flat. Make sure it’s evenly spread out. Add a few extra chocolate chips on top if desired (I always do!)
  5. Freeze for at least one hour, or overnight.
  6. Remove from freezer, cut into squares, top with flaky salt and enjoy!

Storing Instructions

To keep this fudge together, I recommend storing it in the freezer. You can keep it in the freezer for up to one month, although I highly doubt it will last that long! My family and I can easily eat the pan in a day, if we want to.

Because I like storing this fudge in the freezer, sometimes it can be hard to get out of the pan. When you’re ready to eat, I recommend letting it sit out for 5-10 minutes until it softens a little bit.

Another alternative, is you can also make this fudge in a silicon pan! You can find a silicon 9×4 loaf pan, or 8×8 square pan, at Target or on Amazon for fairly inexpensive. Using a silicon pan will make the fudge slide out a little bit easier, even when it’s frozen!
