Paleo Friendly Christmas Fudge

paleo friendly christmas fudge

With Christmas fast approaching Christmas themed recipes are on the cards. At primary school I always used to give my teachers fudge wrapped in cellophane with a cute card, bearing that in mind, I’ve created a paleo friendly version. Hello health conscious Christmas!

INGREDIENTS

6 tablespoons of peanut butter (you could use almond)

3 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)

3 tablespoons of cacao or cocoa powder

3 teaspoons of maple syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

3 tablespoons of shredded coconut

10 dates (chopped and soaked for 10 minutes)

DIRECTIONS

Chop dates into small pieces and soak in a bowl of hot water for 10 minutes.

Combine all ingredients in large bowl or food processor and mix well.

Pour mixture into a lined small container (I used a plastic 100grams lunch box).

Place in the freezer to set for 2 -3 hours.

Just before serving put the fudge in the fridge to soften and slice into bite sized pieces.

Return leftovers (if any) to the freezer.
