Easy Healthy Fudge Recipe
Posted by Margaret Kim on Nov 02, 2007
This easy and delicious fudge recipe calls for protein-rich almond butter and antioxidant-rich raw chocolate powder, making it a decadent treat that is much healthier than conventional store-bought fudge.
Although this fudge is made with all-natural ingredients, it is best to eat only one or two small pieces at a time, as eating honey-rich foods can stress one's blood sugar-regulating mechanisms.
2 cups almond butter
1/4 cup raw cocoa powder, sifted to remove any lumps
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons liquid honey
1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil, melted (optional)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
Spoon the mixture into a pan and flatten with the back of a spoon. Place in the freezer for an hour or so, then take it out to cut into bite-size squares or rectangles. Transfer the pieces onto a plate. Keep these covered and stored in the freezer.
An alternative is to spoon the mixture into candy molds; pop them out when they are thoroughly frozen. They have a chewy texture when frozen.
These must be kept in the freezer, otherwise they will become soft and mushy, to the consistency they were at before freezing. So if you take them out to eat, eat them quickly! Also keep this in mind when cutting the fudge; work quickly.
