Do you feel you overdosed on chocolate over the Easter holiday? No? Me neither, but can you really overdose on chocolate?? Well the answer is yes but it doesn’t count during Easter 😛 

4-Ingredient Salted Caramel Fudge (Vegan & Gluten-free)Actually, I haven’t had any Easter chocolate or any kind of Easter treats this year. I’ve been recipe developing meaning I had way too many of my own treats to work my way through that I didn’t see the need to go out and buy an Easter egg and my family know not to get me treats for that exact same reason. Which worked out fine! It just means my chocolate cravings are as strong as ever, and that’s why I’m posting this chocolate covered 4-ingredient salted caramel fudge recipe. 

Reasons you need to try this 4-Ingredient salted caramel fudge:

  • Super easy to make
  • Requires no cooking
  • No temperature checking
  • No thermometer

Also, it’s

  • Vegan
  • Dairy-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Sweetened with whole dates
  • Much healthier than regular fudge
  • Only calls for 4-ingredients
  • And salted caramel! Need I say more????

Tahini and dates are one of the most beautiful, underused and underrated flavour combinations ever! I grew up in Iraq eating both and one of my favourite breakfasts was ‘dibis wa rashi’, which literally translates to ‘date syrup and tahini’. Mix a small amount of both in a small dish and dip bread into it. Sheer heaven! So I wanted to bring my childhood breakfast to life in the form of a dessert. 

As you may have noticed, dates feature quite heavily in my recipes. I just love using them as a sweetener so much! I usually go for the cheaper varieties of dates because I can’t afford buying medjool dates every few days and I know not everyone can afford them, but for this recipe I do make an exception. The medjool dates just add the most amazing fudgy texture that I’ve struggled to get with other types of dates. They also give the fudge the most amazing caramel taste. 

4-Ingredient Salted Caramel Fudge

Makes – 12 pieces


13 (250g) pitted medjool dates
1/2 cup (120ml) tahini
Pinch of salt
200g dark chocolate, melted


Add the dates, tahini and salt to a food processor and blend until combined (see video above for reference).
Press into a loaf tine (I used a 22×12 cm loaf tin). Freeze for 1-2 hours. 
Slice into 12 even pieces and dip into the melted chocolate insuring each piece of fudge is fully covered.
Allow the chocolate to set. Enjoy! 
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can freeze the leftovers, just ensure you take them out of the freezer 15-20 minutes before serving.

  2. These are a favorite of all the adults, especially those with dietary restrictions. I recently made them with my sister’s homemade chocolate (cocoa, coconut, honey, salt) and they were amazing. Perfect, feel-good snack. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

  3. I tried these today and am so glad I did! They also remind me a little of peanut butter cups. far nicer having this much healthier version though! Thank you Nadia!

  4. Made these a while ago as I wanted to try the recipe. They have become my go to treat for everything. Just as a treat in the house, taking to have at evenings out. Asked for them as a Christmas present. I have been in to a shop today and asked if I was the one that made them as my partner had been raving about them so definitely a huge hit. Thank you.
