A few weeks ago, while at Costco, I picked up a huge container of coconut oil. I don’t know about you, but I have been seeing TONS of articles and facts on all the benefits of it. I decided to try it out. I have been slowly adapting it into more and more of my cooking and so far, LOVE it. I use it to grease pans and trays, in place of shortening, in place of vegetable oil, and more. I recently came across a version of fudge using coconut oil and knew I had to try it. After making a few changes, this fudge took about 5 minutes to make, and I was taste testing in about 10 minutes!! Not only was this SO yummy, I didn’t feel guilty eating one because it isn’t nearly as bad for you as a regular recipe of fudge!!
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted but not hot)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used my homemade recipe)
1/4 cup raw honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Line a muffin tray with liners. Place all ingredients into a bowl and using a whisk, mix until combined. Slowly pour mixture into the muffin cups, filling each cup about 1/2 inch full. Place muffin tray into freezer for 10 minutes, or refrigerator for 30 minutes. Enjoy!! *I used silicone muffin cups and they worked great. I like to store the extra fudge cups in the fridge when we aren’t ready to eat them so they stay completely firm.
