This fudge does turn out a little moister than most due to the coconut oil and should be kept refrigerated. It won't exactly melt, but it will make your fingers pretty sticky if you leave it out too long. I also wouldn't leave it out on a table at room temperature for too long, say, at a party.
My son and his friends loved it when I made it for his birthday party at his daycare.
Recipe after the jump!
Healthy Chocolate Fudge
2 one-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil
2 tbsp butter (preferably organic)
1/2 cup almond butter (crunchy is nice)
1/4 tsp Stevia liquid extract
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Melt the chocolate squares in a double boiler over low heat. Once the chocolate is smooth, add in all other ingredients and stir well until your mix is melted and of a uniform consistency. Pour into a dish or mold and refrigerate.
You can try other nut butters as well or try adding in your favorite chopped nuts.
Yield: 7 ounces
TIP #1: Measure out all of your ingredients before hand. That way your chocolate won't burn while you are trying to scoop nut butter or coconut oil.
TIP #2: If you can't find coconut oil or Stevia extract at your grocery store (I couldn't, not even at Whole Foods) then you can order both of them on Amazon.com.
