Healthy Reese's Fudge

Servings: 36 pieces

Prep Time: 30 minutes mins

Chill Time: 30 minutes mins

Total Time: 30 minutes mins

This Healthy Reese's Fudge is soft, packed with peanut butter and chocolate flavor, and melts in your mouth! You'd never know it's low calorie, low fat, low sugar, high protein, and gluten free too!


  • 1 batch Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge
  • 4 oz 70% Dark Chocolate (chopped**)
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil


  • Make the Peanut Butter Fudge. After slicing the fudge, place the fudge cubes on a cookie tray lined with a sheet of parchment paper. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the chocolate.

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate and microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring between each one, until melted, then stir in the coconut oil.

  • Take the fudge out of the fridge. Toss a piece of fudge into the chocolate and use a fork to coat it entirely and remove it from the chocolate. Tap off any excess chocolate, then place the cube onto the prepared cookie sheet. Do this with the rest of the fudge, and reheat the chocolate if necessary. Chill the cubes until the chocolate hardens, then serve.

Recipe Notes

**For a sugar free version, use Lily's no-sugar-added chocolate.

    9 recipes? Wow! And congrats, 1 more year to go! Love these and can’t believe they are healthy. They look amazing!


    • dessertswithbenefits May 13, 2014 at 11:15 am

      Haha YES nine! (Is that crazy?)
      I can’t wait until my college career is totally over. Too much stress.
      And thank you so much! These don’t taste healthy… AT. ALL. 🙂

    Hey jess…congrats first of all on finishing the year!
    I’m new to your blog and I’ve been reading it almost nonstop the past few days trying to find your beat recipes.
    My husband has lost 20lbs on nutrisystem and one thing he likes is the two desserts they give him in a day. I’d like to be able to make some equivalents for when he goes off of it. All of them are about 150 calories, 4-5g fat, 24 carbs, 5 fiber, 7-8 protein.
    I’m having trouble because many of your older recipes don’t have the nutrition facts. What would be your top three recipes to recommend to me?


    • dessertswithbenefits May 13, 2014 at 2:00 pm

      Thank you so much! Only one more year to go! 🙂
      I’m so glad you found my blog, tell your husband CONGRATS on his weight loss. That’s incredible! It seems as if Nutrisystem’s nutritional guidelines are pretty much what I aim for when I make a recipe — not too much fat or protein, not too many carbs or calories, along with some fiber and vitamins/minerals.
      Here are my top 3 favorite recipes that (closely) align with those nutritional requirements:
      1. Fudgy Black Bean Brownies (sounds gross, but it’s SO GOOD and only 100 calories… just read the comments!)
      2. Healthy Chocolate Mousse
      3. Healthy Reese’s Cupcakes (Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Filling and Chocolate-Peanut Butter Frosting)
      Although, these are suited to my taste… I’m not sure what your husband likes. If he doesn’t like chocolate or peanut butter, these might not be the best for him.
      Here are some other recipes I love that also (closely) align with the nutritional requirements:
      4. Healthier Lemon Bars
      5. Decadent Peanut Butter Pie or Creamy Key Lime Cheesecake (the nutrition labels for both of these recipes are for 1/8th slice, which is a pretty generous serving… feel free to serve a 1/10th slice or 1/16th slice)
      6. Chocolate Fro-Yo (slightly lower fat, lower carb and higher protein) or Nutella Fro-Yo (slightly higher fat and lower carb)
      7. Banana Quinoa Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

      I’m so sorry, it’s really hard to choose just 3! I hope this helps 🙂

        Wow! Thank you so much! Tried the black bean brownies last night and they turned out good (I liked them but hubby said they tasted too healthy) i don’t think they were sweet enough for his liking. I’m making the Reese’s pb cupcakes right now. After tasting the batter I added a tbs honey to make them sweeter and one scoop of chocolate protein powder. I also substituted white flour for the sorgum flour and did half apple sauce half oil and 1/4 cup egg whites. I will let u know how they turn out!

      • dessertswithbenefits May 17, 2014 at 9:39 am

        I’m glad you tried out the Brownies! Too bad they weren’t sweet enough for your hubby, maybe next time try adding a yummy chocolate frosting or some chocolate chips to the batter?
        I hope you like the Reese’s Cupcakes! 😀

    Congrats on graduating junior year! I haven’t even started college so I can’t imagine what it is like… eek! :-/ But making 9 DESSERTS IN ONE NIGHT sounds sooooooo amazing i think it would make up for a lot of school stresses 😛


    • dessertswithbenefits May 13, 2014 at 9:14 pm

      Thanks so much Emily!! 🙂
      I think I make college sound way worse than it is. I mean, it’s seriously tough, but it’s really rewarding.
      Yes, eating (hint future recipes hint) Coconut Cream Pie Oatmeal and Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal for breakfast, (yet another hint) Apple Pie Cheesecake Dip for lunch and … hmmm, dinner should be happening soon so I guess it’s more dessert!
      All of my stress just flew out the window. 😉

    Is there a way to make this without the coconut oil? My partner is violently allergic to coconuts.


    • dessertswithbenefits May 14, 2014 at 10:08 am

      Oh no! Sorry to hear about the allergy. Thankfully, any oil can substitute for coconut oil 🙂
      I actually just made this recipe again using the oil skimmed off of a new jar of almond butter! But you could use Grapeseed Oil, Non-GMO Canola Oil, etc… pretty much anything should work except for Extra Virgin Olive Oil — that would taste gross, haha 😉
      Hope you like the recipe!


      • zymish May 14, 2014 at 4:04 pm

        Oh cool, thank you! I’ll have to give it a try.

  5. Annie @ Natural Sweet Recipes May 19, 2014 at 5:51 pm

    These look like they literally melt in your mouth! What a delicious treat. I will never get bored of pb and chocolate!


    • dessertswithbenefits May 21, 2014 at 8:25 am

      Annie @ Natural Sweet Recipes-
      Thanks so much!! They really do melt in your mouth… I brought some of this fudge in the car with me on my drive to school. That’s when I realized how soft and fudgy they were, it’s awesome. Now I’m craving a giant batch of these, YUM!! 😀
