Recipe by Abigail B.
I got the starting point for this recipe from the recipe on Food.com "Coco-Cocoa Fantasy Fudge (Clean Eating)" by MamaMeag. When I tried it, it didn't quite turn out how I was expecting. For one thing, it was too thin. That was probably my fault. I don't think I used the right pan. And I thought that it was way too sweet. So in my experimenting, I doubled the recipe (except the honey) and added a few things. Like coconut flakes. That seemed like a must. And peanut butter. So good. The final end result turned out delicious! It's very chocolate-y (but not too sweet) and creamy with a nice little crunch. I've considered adding some oats to it, but haven't yet.
- 1 cup organic virgin coconut oil
- 2⁄3 cup organic peanut butter
- 1 cup organic cocoa powder
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup organic raw honey
- 1⁄2 cup organic coconut flakes (unsweetened)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt coconut oil in small pot on stove over low-medium heat.
- Add peanut butter and mix in well.
- Once the peanut butter and coconut oil are well combined and watery, take off heat.
- Add cocoa powder, honey, coconut flakes, & nuts (optional). Mix well.
- Add vanilla.
- Pour into 10x7 coconut oil-greased glass pan. (Or any pan, really. Just depends on how thick you want the fudge.).
- Place in fridge. Takes several hours to get hard. I haven't timed it yet.
- IMPORTANT! Must keep STORED in fridge otherwise the coconut oil in the fudge will melt and get super soft and mushy and it'll just be a big mess.
- NOTE: (I make it with 1/4 cup honey because my Dad likes things on the not so sweet side. So for those of you who want more sweetness, I would add 1/2 cup or maybe even 2/3!).
