Let me share a very good thing with you.
This is Fridge Fudge.
It is HEALTHY. It is technically GOOD FOR YOU.
The fact that it is insanely delicious has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on it's goodness.
And it's really, really delicious.
I usually make it in a rectangular pan, lined with parchment, but I received these great little silicon muffin cups for christmas and I am kind of using them for everything right now, so I thought I'd give the Fudge a try.
They just pop right out and you can inhale or savor. Whatever your style may be.
(forgive me these pictures, it was a DO It Now Before They Are All Eaten situation this morning, and I am not set up as a food stylist!)
Here. Make some!
1/2 c nut butter (I use almond butter most of the time, but I've done it with tahini and they were great too)
1/3 c coconut oil
1/4 c agave or honey or maple syrup
pinch of salt to taste (I really like a hit of salt so I am pretty generous)
dash of vanilla
1/3 c cocoa powder or carob powder (I was reading yesterday that cocoa has crazy iron in it so eat up!)
1 c combination of almond meal, nuts, seeds, oats, dried fruit
(this is the great this about this recipe. The Fudge pictured above is almond meal, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, craisins and hemp hearts! But I've made it before with candied ginger, walnuts, raisins, coconut, slivered almonds... you can even swap the vanilla for almond extract. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!)
On the stove over low heat, melt the nut butter and coconut oil until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in everything else.
Pour into a little dish lined with parchment, OR if you've got them, these silicon muffin cups worked great! It made 12 cups last night.
Put your dish or cups into the freezer for 30 minutes and then they are set and ready to enjoy!
They keep in the fridge once they've been set, but they have never lasted longer than maybe 24 hours around here (IF they were lucky!) so I can't tell you how long they would keep for if you didn't eat them for some reason.
I DARE you to try to not eat them.
