Recipe Review: "Healthy Fudge"
First item of business is that I would like to apologize to those who have been leaving comments on this blog for not posting or replying to them. I love your comments, I mean I really live for them, today I noticed that there were some left quite a long time ago that I never got notification of so that I could reply to them and I'm sick about it. Know your comments mean a lot to me and I like to reply if I can.
Next item of business, fudge. This is a review of a series of videos from ehow. It took way too long for me to watch them all, I much prefer a written recipe I can scan. But I have to say I really like this fudge. It is not traditional and I wouldn't serve it at a party but to have a healthy alternative to all the chocolate goodies around this time of year is a great thing. Notice there is not much sweetener in this recipe, if you are used to a dark chocolate taste and not an overly sweet one you will like this as is. If you have a sweeter tooth add more honey. The video presenter credits Jordan Rubin for this recipe, he is the author of several books including The Maker's Diet.
Note: This is not an SCD legal recipe
1 c. coconut oil
1/4 c. honey
1 T. vanilla
1/4 c. almond butter
3/4 c. cocoa powder (use raw if you can)
1. Place all ingredients in a double boiler and stir over heat until combined.
2. Pour into a parchment covered 8x8 inch pan (leave the parchment paper sticking up around the sides).
3. Refrigerate 2 hours.
4. Remove the fudge in one entire piece by lifting up the corners of the parchment paper. Cut into 2 inch pieces. Store in the refrigerator.
