Creamy chocolate fudge with a dreamy layer of coconut. This fudge is reminiscent of what used to be one of my favorite candy bars - the Mounds bar. Be sure to read to the end of the post to enter a giveaway for Lily's chocolate!
It may be cold outside, but that doesn't mean you can't send your tastebuds on a trip to the tropics! The idea for this fudge came this past summer when I was visiting family in Tennessee (where I grew up). We stopped to shop at one of our favorite little stores in Townsend, and bought a few pieces of fudge (yes, the sugar-filled variety). It was so good - and I knew immediately that I wanted to re-create a healthier version of this delightful treat!
The chocolate layer is simply one batch of my 2 Ingredient Fudge. The coconut layer is a combination of coconut butter, coconut oil, heavy cream, and a touch of unsweetened coconut, (along with a bit of Gentle Sweet).
This recipe is a little more involved than my other fudge recipes, but it is so worth it! I used this 9 Cavity Silicone Bar Pan for the fudge, then cut each bar into four pieces. This gave me 36 pieces of fudge from one recipe. (Which still didn't last long around my house!)
The first thing you need to do is make my 3 Ingredient Sweetened Condensed Milk (it is low carb and sugar free). This is assuming you don't already have a stash of this liquid gold hidden in your fridge. I try to keep some handy so I can whip up fudge whenever the mood strikes me!
Don't let the steps intimidate you - this fudge is WORTH IT!
By now many of you know that I use a lot of Lily's chocolate. Yes, it can be a little pricey, but I love the fact that I can eat a chocolate candy bar or use chocolate chips in my baking without having a blood sugar spike! Besides, Lily's has a very touching story about how they got their start. You can read their story here. They also donate to charities that support childhood cancer survivors and children currently fighting cancer. Lily's is a company I feel comfortable supporting, and I love their products! If you find they are too expensive to order from Amazon, and you cannot find them locally, consider ordering from Vitacost. They have a reasonable price on the Chocolate Chips (and they are currently on sale). If you use my referral link for your first purchase, you will get $10 off your $30 purchase, and I will get a discount as well! Click here to use my affiliate link.

- Make 2 Ingredient Fudge Recipe
- In 9 cavity silicone pan, put 1-2 Tablespoons fudge mixture in each cavity, then place in freezer to harden.
- Meanwhile, warm ½ cup coconut butter until it is soft.
- Add melted coconut oil, Gentle Sweet, coconut, and heavy cream and mix well (I used my hand mixer).
- After fudge has firmed up ( 20 minutes or so), add enough coconut mixture to cover the fudge completely in each cavity.
- Place back in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
- Place remaining fudge on top of coconut mixture and place back in the freezer to completely harden,
- Remove from silicone pan and slice into pieces. I like to keep my fudge in the refrigerator so it is soft.
