More Chocolate!

It's no secret that I love most things chocolate. Pinterest has been a great resource for me to find not so bad for you recipes including chocolate. Here is my latest fav that helps to satisfy my sweet tooth. 

5 Ingredient No Bake Fudge Drops
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour (chill)
Keywords: no bake raw dessert dairy-free gluten-free grain-free paleo refined sugar-free soy-free sugar-free vegan vegetarian chocolate

Ingredients (20 ping pong sized balls)
  • 2 tbsp lite coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup cashini butter or coconut butter - see note
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, softened
  • Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
  • In the bowl of a processor or blender, combine coconut milk, medjool dates, and coconut oil until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until fully incorporated.
  • Using a tablespoon, spoon mixture onto prepared baking sheet and place in the freezer for 1 hour, or fridge for 3.
  • Once a bit more solid, roll each drop of fudge into a ball and place in a plastic container.
  • Seal container and return back to freezer until ready to eat.
  • note: I chose cashini and/or coconut butter because they’re harder at room temperature and will help to hold the balls together better than say an almond butter or peanut butter. Although I haven’t tried it, you could try omitting the milk and using 1/2 cup of the nut butter of your choice.
