I don’t know about you, but I like keeping something sweet tucked away in the freezer like this chocolate peanut butter fudge for when the craving for dessert hits after dinner. This chocolate tahini fudge has just the right amount of sweetness to hit the spot. Plus, it couldn’t be any easier to make so we find ourselves replacing freezer stash often.
What is Tahini?
Tahini is made out of ground sesame seeds. It has an earthy, nutty taste that can sometimes have just a hint of bitterness. The texture of tahini is very smooth and it tends to be a little more runny than peanut butter. Tahini is used in a lot of Middle Eastern recipes like hummus.
Is Tahini healthy?
Yes! Tahini, like other nut butters, is a good source of healthy fats like polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. It also has more calcium and iron than peanut butter.
How to Store this Vegan Chocolate Tahini Fudge
The best way to store this fudge is in the freezer. It does soften quickly when left out, so it is best eaten right out of the freezer. You may notice some tahini brands are a little more runny than others so this may alter the texture of your tahini fudge a bit. I’ve had success using Ziyad brand for this fudge.

Comments & Reviews
I was wondering if there is a substitute for the coconut oil in the tahini fudge recipe? My family has an allergy to coconut oil. This recipe sounds so yummy and looks pretty easy to make that I would love to try it.
you can literally skip the coconut oil, it just makes the fudge more firm. you could increase the maple syrup/sub for vegan butter/almond milk for more liquid. the recipes very forgiving
