It’s no secret to Dinner-Mom readers that a sweet ending is considered an essential part of a delicious dinner…at least by the majority at my house, especially at holidays…like Halloween.

As much as possible, I strive for treats that have some healthy qualities, are simplified (or at least demystified) and are FUN. Come Halloween it’s hard to go wrong with fun. Easy and healthy can be a little more challenging.

Nut butter paired with chocolate is a combination we LOVE because not only does it taste great but the final product is more filling and a little healthier too.  That’s why you’ll find Chocolate Date Balls and Apple Dessert Nachos at our house frequently.

With that rationale in mind, Easy Almond Butter Fudge manages to satisfy all three requirements: Easy, Healthy and Fun! 🙂

I’ve never shied away from the notion of including a dessert with dinner because my girls never fail to pop into the kitchen and share in the fun of making it. Now teens, even in the midst of a marathon study session, they will join in. It’s a welcome break. That’s the inspiration for Easy Halloween Fudge. It’s quick to make and becomes a blank palate for creativity.

How to Make Almond Butter Fudge in the Microwave

It literally takes less than 15 minutes! Melt almond butter and coconut oil in the microwave oven. Stir to combine and then stir in the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla. We found the portioning the batter in mini muffin tins very easy. However, spreading the batter in a pan is also an option.

Coconut oil replaces the butter you would typically find in fudge. It quickly melts and easily emulsifies the almond butter. Any nut butter would work, including peanut butter.

Powered sugar gives it the traditional fudge sweetness. Top the mini fudge pieces with your favorite Halloween sprinkles, like a well-placed eye…or even some leftover Halloween candy.
