As we wrap up our AMAZING 10-day Detox, we are beginning to think of (and crave) a little treat for the holidays! We thought we’d share a little guilt-free fudge recipe we’ve been sitting on. Enjoy and feel free to leave comments below with some of your favorite guilt-free holiday treats!
P.S. If you’re looking for more traditional tasting fudge, feel free to substitute the coconut oil for butter, raw honey (use a little less), or coconut/palm sugar.
Guilt-Free Holiday Fudge
1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 cup of coconut/palm sugar
dash of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
(optional: substitute 1/4 cup of cacao with 1/4 cup of Pure Paleo Chocolate)
1. In a heat resistant, glass measuring cup, place the coconut oil. Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water, and place the glass measuring cup in it. Heat on the stove top until the coconut oil is mostly melted (the coconut oil should be room temperature, not hot. This will protect its raw benefits).
2. In a food processor using the regular blade, add the melted coconut oil and the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined.
3. Place enough plastic wrap or parchment paper in a loaf pan to cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Scrape your fudge “dough” into the loaf pan, and fold the plastic wrap or parchment paper over the top of the fudge. Gently press down, to even out the thickness of the fudge (you want it to be about 1/2 inch thick, it will cover probably about 1/2 of the bottom of your loaf pan). Take out the fudge, carefully wrapped up, and place in the freezer or refrigerator until it has set up. In the freezer, it only takes about 20- to 30 minutes.
4. Cut into small squares, and ENJOY!
