I NEEDED chocolate. Pronto. Like, yesterday. Chocolate chips weren’t cutting it. I wanted something cool and creamy.
Enter Pinterest. Enter my new favorite snack. I don’t know if it will be our family’s new favorite snack. Artoo passed on it because it didn’t look “swirly” enough, whatever that means. Padme liked it a bunch. Now, if Lando Calrissian, my super-picky taste, texture and palatability tester gives it the thumbs up – I’ll be happy!
I know. Enough chit-chat. More fudge.
COCONUT OIL FUDGE
You will need:
1/2 cup of coconut oil, please use cold-pressed – it actually tastes and smells like coconut oil!
1/4 cup of coconut milk, straight from the can
1/3-1/3 cup of cocoa powder, I used 1/2 cup because we like our chocolate strong. I will use more next time
1 tsp vanilla, we use Trader Joes vanilla (in glycerine) instead of alcohol, the flavor is much more fragrant and mellow
1/3 cup coconut sugar, put through a coffee grinder so it’s nice and smooth in the fudge
1.Make sure that your coconut oil is cool, but not solid as if you had put it in the refrigerator. Combine the oil and coconut milk in a stand mixer bowl and run on medium until it look a bit like marshmallow fluff!
5. When the fudge is solid, place the large chunk on a cutting board and slice into bite-sized pieces.
6. Keep in a covered container or plate in the frig and hope it lasts for more than a day! Remember, I’m now at makewhatworks.com!
