Sunflower Butter Sea Salt Fudge Recipe

The Sunflower Butter Sea Salt Fudge Recipe is the perfect no guilt treat for a chocolate sweet tooth. This fudge is a unique homemade gift for the holidays. Duxbury Saltworks Sea Salt gives it the added savory element. Any nut butters can be substituted for sunflower butter. I find almond butter with crushed up almonds on top delicious in this recipe as well. This recipe is also vegan, gluten free, and dairy free friendly.



When you're making these chocolates for a gift, include an extra bottle of the Duxbury Saltworks Sea Salt and attach this recipe. The cute bottle comes with a tiny spoon and makes for a special unique gift.
