Sharing is caring!

As we say goodbye to 2018, I thought I’d share my latest fattening creation; tahini fudge. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time for dieting in 2019. Besides, you don’t have to eat it all by yourself, you can share! How about taking the fudge to your next Christmas get together or holiday work party? Fudge is also great to give as a gift or to use as a stocking stuffer. Just don’t let your four-legged, furry babies get to it first!

Tahini Fudge

Did you know tahini fudge was even a thing? I sure didn’t. Lately, it seems every time I think I’m about to come up with a new recipe, someone has already beat me to it. The cake my daughter requested for her birthday this year is a good example. Nena asked for a cheesecake made with circus animals cookies. In case you’re wondering, she just turned 24. I was pretty surprised to find out that someone had already created it! Of course, I made my own version. So when I started dreaming of a unique fudge recipe for the holidays, I was once again surprised to find out that it already existed. However, I did go out of my way to make this an original recipe, so I hope you enjoy it!

How to make Simple Fudge

Making fudge is as simple as melting chocolate, and mixing in some condensed milk, butter, or in this case tahini and coconut oil. After that, you can mix in dried fruit, nuts, or just leave them plain. Although I had intended to use white chocolate chips in this recipe, all I had on hand was dark chocolate and butterscotch chips. So you might want to try it both ways and see what you prefer. Also try sprinkling the top with chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or flaked coconut. Lastly, these Tahini Fudge Bars go great with Turkish Coffee!

  • Hi Kelly,
    It doesn’t change that flavor as much as I’d hoped. That might be due to the dark chocolate and butterscotch chips I used. Next time I will use white chocolate to see how that changes it up. I didn’t want to use more than 1/4 cup because I was afraid they wouldn’t set up. Next time I’m kicking it up to 1/3 of a cup and white chocolate chips and see what happens. However, they are quite delicious! Maybe we can meet up for coffee this week and I’ll bring some for you to sample.
