Instructions
Make the Chocolate Fudge Layer
  1. Line a small rectangular container with parchment. A loaf pan, shoebox or other similar-sized vessel works perfect.
  2. Whisk all ingredients together in small bowl. You can microwave for a few seconds or warm slightly in a saucepan if coconut cream needs some help melting.
  3. Pour into parchment lined container. Place in freezer for 30 minutes.
Make the Peanut Butter Fudge Layer
  1. While chocolate layer chills, whisk peanut butter fudge ingredients together in small bowl. Again, you can warm the mixture up in the microwave or on the stove to facilitate mixing of the coconut cream.
  2. Pour over chocolate fudge layer. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts, if using.
  3. Freeze 30 minutes more. Remove from container and remove parchment. Cut into 1 inch squares. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
Recipe Notes

*Cans of coconut cream can be purchased in some stores or online. Alternatively, simply place a can of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to use, open the can and drain any water. The thick, semi-solid part that remains is the cream.
