Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to makes these treats!! This does not correlate with Ferment February, BUT I just have to post this! I Copied this straight from Homemade Mommy! There was honestly nothing to change in this recipe! I highly suggest you checking out her site!
- 1 cup coconut oil – where to buy coconut oil
- 1/2 cup raw honey or maple syrup
- 1 cup raw cacao powder (you can sub or do 1/2 and 1/2 with carob powder if chocolate bothers you)
- dash of salt – where to buy salt
- 1 tsp of vanilla
In a heat resistant pyrex or other glass bowl or measuring cup, add the coconut oil. Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water and place the glass measuring cup in it. Heat on stove top until coconut oil is mostly melted (room temp – not hot). UPDATE: please do not skip this step and microwave your oil. You will kill the good antimicrobial properties in the oil and it also won’t blend in well with the cocoa powder. If you end up with a watery mess you heated the coconut oil up too hot! (PLEASE DON’T! My first batch my oil got a bit too warm)
While the coconut oil is coming to room temperature, add all the other ingredients to a food processor. Add the coconut oil and blend until combined in the food processor.
Place some plastic wrap or parchment paper in a loaf pan to cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Pour the chocolate mixture into the loaf pan and cover with the plastic wrap (gently). Press down or tilt to even out the thickness. I like mine about 1/2 inch thick. UPDATE: I have recently just poured out the chocolate on some parchment paper on a cookie sheet or roasting pan and put the whole thing in the fridge. This avoids the plastic wrap and works just as well.
Place the loaf pan with the fudge into into the freezer and let it set for about 20 min. Remove and slice into bite sized pieces. I put these in a jar and store in the fridge. I sometimes make a double recipe and store the other half already cut up in the freezer
I put mine into a thinner dish and cut into hearts for Valentine’s Day. I will be making more of these!!
