Chocolate Nut Butter Freezer Fudge
When I hear the words chocolate and fudge, it’s music to my ears! This mouth-watering, FODMAP-friendly, rich dessert is quick and easy to make and dirties only one bowl. Naturally gluten-free, this recipe provides less than 10 almonds per serving, but if that’s too much for your gut, you can substitute with peanut butter.
