What fun it would be if this was the latest breaking news. I am very much an advocate for raw chocolate, cacao, anything really with that heavenly flavor. If only they hadn’t added all that sugar to it, chemicals, high fructose corn syrup, and who knows what else in the manufacturing of a candy bar.
Lately, it seems everything is about coconut oil.
*It’s a healthy fat
*added to foods and drinks daily for energy
*Rub it on your skin
*oil pulling (improves gum health)
*use it for cooking (great oil for high temperatures)
*an eye makeup remover
*may prevent stretch marks during pregnancy
*increase on tolerance and avoid burning (SPF4)
*a delicious massage oil
*it may help improve cholesterol ratios
*to season cast-iron skillet’s
*when taken regularly it may boost hormone production
This list could go on and on for pages, but that’s not what this blog is about.
Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Coconut Oil Fudge!!!
1 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
1 cup high quality raw cacao powder (don’t skimp here, quality makes a huge difference in taste.)
1/3 cup raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
Dash of sea salt
½ cup organic peanut butter(Smooth or chunky).
Add all ingredients except peanut butter and beat on medium heat with a hand mixer at least 10 min.. Picture should be very smooth and glossy. Add peanut butter and blend until combined.
Pour mixture into a glass baking dish (no grease needed).
Size of the dish will depend on your desired thickness.
Refrigerate to set. Cut into squares and enjoy.
Keep this in the refrigerator, eat daily.
I have used this recipe with many modifications. I have added nuts, and all manner of Young Living Essential Oils. Orange is my favorite.
Thank you to Linda from Salem; it was her original recipe that I started with. Start with mine and make it your own.
