If you want a healthy dessert that’s quick, no-bake, and melts in your mouth, these easy chocolate fudge bars are definitely the recipe to try.
I’ve been making this chocolate fudge—adapted from the popular Oatmeal Chocolate Fudge Bars—all the way back since 2016.
Initially, I hadn’t even planned to post the recipe, because it is almost too easy!
Ultra rich and smooth dark chocolate fudge bars, with no butter or powdered sugar, and they can be made in under 5 minutes, no oven required.
Seriously, why are you still here reading this?

So What Are The Two Ingredients?
Ready for it???
All you need to make the bars are chocolate chips (or sugar free chocolate chips) and peanut butter.
Or feel free to use coconut butter, almond butter, or sunbutter to make them peanut-free. The fudge can sit out at room temperature, making it a great option for parties.
It can also easily be made ahead of time.

If you need some brand ideas to make them vegan, there’s a whole list of vegan chocolate chip brands in my post on Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Or you can finely chop up your favorite chocolate bars and make your own chocolate chips to use for the recipe… in whatever flavor you wish!
I sliced them into 16 squares, but the fudge is so rich that you can definitely halve that and cut them into smaller pieces if you’d prefer traditional-sized chocolate fudge.
You can also throw in some chopped walnuts or almonds, shredded coconut, protein powder, or hemp or chia seeds if desired, or add a few drops of pure peppermint or almond extract.
Have fun with the recipe, because the flavor possibilities are endless!

Easy Chocolate Fudge Bars
Line an 8×8 pan with parchment or wax paper, and set aside. If nut butter is not stir-able, gently warm it until soft. Melt the chocolate chips (Google how to melt chocolate if unsure, as it’s easy to burn). Stir together all ingredients until smooth. Pour into the pan and spread out evenly. Freeze 10 minutes or until firm enough to slice. The bars can stay out at room temperature if you’re serving them, especially if it’s not too warm outside or in your home. I like to store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.
