Makes 36 servings
- 60g (2 oz) of Green & Black's Organic Burnt Toffee Dark Chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 large very ripe banana, mashed well
- 1 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 3 1/2 Tbsp peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- Pinch of salt
- 3 Tbsp butter, cut into chunks
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla
- Fleur de sel, for sprinkling
How to make it
Grease an 8x8" square pan, and line with parchment paper so that the paper hangs over two edges. Grease the paper, and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat the chocolate, banana, white sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, honey, milk, and a pinch of salt over medium-high heat. Stir until combined, then cook until a candy thermometer reads 240°. This should take about 10-14 minutes.
Once at temperature, turn off the heat and drop in the chunks of butter. Allow it to melt into the fudge, and stir to combine.
Allow the fudge to cool until cool enough to touch, then add in the vanilla extract. Stir until combined and pour into the square pan, smoothing with a wooden spoon. Sprinkle with fleur de sel, and allow to cool to room temperature before cutting into 1" squares. Enjoy.
