If you want to make a festive and healthy treat to spread some Christmas cheer, this stove-top or microwave fudge is the recipe you've been searching for.

Line an 8x4” loaf pan with parchment paper.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a heat-safe bowl in the microwave in 20 second increments (stirring well in between) OR over a double-boiler over medium heat.
Whisk in the cashew butter and maple syrup until smooth. Add vanilla and salt, and whisk again until smooth and combined.
Transfer the mixture into the lined pan and spread it in a smooth and even layer. Sprinkle the chopped nuts evenly over the top, if using and place the pan in the freezer for at least an hour or until set.
Once set, remove your fudge from the pan and use the parchment paper to lift the fudge out. Use a sharp knife to cut it into even squares.
