Sweet, creamy, salty fudge
If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ve probably caught the vibe that I’m absolutely and utterly obsessed with freezer fudge. It makes night time snacking so much easier (and satisfying)!
I’m one hundred percent one of those has-to-have-dessert-every-day kind of girls, so I keep my freezer fully stocked with the goods.
One of the snacks that I keep handy is this delicious Tahini Freezer Fudge. It’s perfect for keeping on deck for nights when I don’t feel like making something from scratch.
I started making this fudge when I saw my friend Kelsey of Little Bits of Real Food post her Cacao Freezer Fudge. From that moment, I never looked back! Let’s dive into the how-to so that you can get in on the fudgy goodness!
What’s used in this recipe?
Five-ingredient tahini freezer fudge is blended to perfection and made from only a handful of simple ingredients. We use creamy tahini, juicy medjool dates, natural maple syrup, a little bit of almond flour, and salt for sprinkling on top.
*Don’t forget to pit your dates!
**My favorite brand of Tahini is Soom! It’s the best – smooth, creamy, and delicious. It’s great for baking and cooking and is more liquidy and less gritty. You can save 10% by using this link!
Tools needed to make fudge
To make this recipe you’ll need a baking dish (or bread pan), a food processor, and a spatula. That’s it! Be sure to grab a couple of measuring cups too, as you’ll need to measure out 1 tsp, 1/4 cup, and 1 cup.
How to make tahini freezer fudge
I love that this recipe literally takes less than 5 minutes to throw together. Just whip everything up and then throw it in the freezer, and you’re done! It’s so simple and I think that’s what keeps making me come back for more. I call this the dreamiest healthy fudge, and for good reason! One bite and you’ll understand.
Before you get started, consider soaking your dates. I like to do this ahead of time so that they’re really soft when going into the food processor. If you choose to do this, soak them in a bowl of hot water for at least 15 minutes.
Add the dates to a food processor and blend.
Blend it up until everything is well combined and smooth – there should not be any big chunks of dates.
Then, press everything flat into an 8×8 dish (or bread pan for thicker fudge).
Place in the freezer for at least one hour before cutting. Sprinkle with sea salt, and enjoy!
A healthier fudge recipe
All fudge is delicious, but it is not all created equally, that’s for sure! Store bought fudge is often filled with gnarly chemicals and preservatives, which is why I’m all about making my own.
In my recipe, you’ll find many different whole ingredients that serve as nutritious alternatives to the store bought options. Here are some swaps that are used in this recipe:
This type of flour helps to bind the fudge together, and it’s a great alternative to white flour.

- I personally like to soak my dates ahead of time so that they are really soft when going into the food processor, but you don’t have to. If you choose to do so, soak them in a bowl of hot water for at least 15 minutes.
- Add soaked dates to a food processor and blend alone.
- Once smooth, add in the tahini, almond flour, maple syrup, and vanilla.
- Blend it up until well combined and smooth, there should not be any big chunks of dates.
- Press flat into an 8×8 pan or a bread pan for thicker fudge.
- Place in freezer for at least one hour before cutting. Sprinkle with sea salt before enjoying.
