Grown-up steps: Running the knife under hot water and wiping between slices will make cutting the fudge easier, and a lot less messy.
  1. Line an 8-inch square pan with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl with a spatula, mix together the almond butter and coconut oil until smooth.
  3. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, salt, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add the chocolate chips (or other optional additions if using) and mix to incorporate.
  5. Pour into the square pan, smoothing out the top with a spatula.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and let it set for 1 hour in the freezer.
  7. Run a knife under hot water for 1 minute and carefully slice the fudge. Wipe the knife clean and run it again in the hot water between slices to finish cutting into squares.
