Paleo Fudge Recipe

It is the most wonderful time of the year. Cookies are baking, trees need decorating… And fudge, well, fudge just brings a smile to our faces and indescribable happiness to our tongues.

We know without a doubt that a plate of Paleo fudge makes an excellent gift for all those on your list, if not only for yourself.

If you aren’t sure what to give this year, the answer is, and always will be fudge. Paleo eaters appreciate it aplenty, while non-Paleo noshers will be delighted and curious to dive in too!

It is sweet and cocoa-y; what’s not to love?

To give this simple fudge its fudginess, we chose to use almond butter, but another nut butter of your choice could work too. This fudge is rich, smooth, and chocolatey fudge.

All it takes is a few ingredients and a simple flick of the wrist, and by that, we mean some mixing.

Make sure to store it in the fridge since the base is coconut oil, it will melt rather quickly – it’s still an indulgence, nonetheless!

But there is more! Don’t forget to add your own creative elements: goji berries, chopped nuts, dates, cocoa nibs, peppermint extract, or coconut snow. Remember not to cut the squares too big; leave room for the desire to come back for another bite, another piece of fudge…
