Fudge! I forgot to turn on the oven. Oh, never mind. This fudge doesn’t require baking, stovetop cooking or heating of any kind. It also doesn’t feature refined sugar. You’ll sweeten it with xylitol, which allows the peanut flavor to really pop. After a quick run through the food processor, you’ll pour the mixture into a pan and let it set until it’s good and firm but still cuts clean. You can’t fudge this dessert even if you tried.
