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!
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!
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!
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!

I looove this Tahini Freezer Fudge!! I’ve made it 5 times and decided I just need to always keep some in the freezer. I’m curious if the tahini can be subbed out for natural peanut butter, since that’s what’s I usually have on hand!
Hi Kathleen, thank you for making this recipe so many times! I am so happy you loved it! And to answer your question, yes, you can substitute the tahini for peanut butter. 🙂
