These are very creamy and delicious. You may even forget that this is a healthy alternative to traditional fudge! I received this recipe from a friend. She does not remember where she got it from. I thought this was worth keeping and sharing so it doesn't get lost. These are primal and paleo diet-friendly. Substitute pure maple syrup for the honey to make these vegan-friendly.

Fortunately I read the reviews with comments about the mixture being too soft before I made this delicious recipe. I tried cutting the amount of coconut oil in half and increased the vanilla to 1 tsp. I did not have almond butter so I used natural crunchy peanut butter (which is not Paleo). The results? Great! The texture was firm although it still needed to be refrigerated because it is too soft at room temp. One other thing I did was to heat the coconut oil and cocoa powder in the microwave just till it bubbles a bit. Doing this develops the flavor of the chocolate to taste more fudge-like. I let that cool till warm instead of hot and mixed in the honey then the peanut butter and vanilla. The mixture needs to be spooned into the muffins cups while warm or it will be too thick to spread out in the muffin liner. The next time I make it I may cut back on the cocoa by a tablespoon or two because the taste was a very strong chocolate taste. If I do I will also decrease the coconut oil so that the ratio is 1 part coconut oil to 2 parts cocoa powder. Read More

I found this tonight and just whipped up a batch! I've been on a paleo diet for some time and this is by far one of the best alternatives for a dessert (and fudge of all things)! The creamy texture makes this fudge so decadent. I made this recipe exactly as stated but had to stick mine in the freezer because it was still very soft after 30 minutes. I'm keeping it in the freezer since it melts pretty quickly. Can't wait to try more with natural peanut butter and maple syrup for another twist! Definitely a keeper! Read More

Love the taste the only problem is that I was to give these away and they become soft quickly. Any way to solve this problem? Read More

Easy and delicious! I didn't have a food processor so I blended well with a butter knife. It turned out fine. I will definitely make this again. Photo was taken just prior to refrigeration. Read More

Easy to throw together and tasty. Nice alternative to my usual after dinner chocolate. Does taste "healthy" but very creamy. Still couldn't fool the kids. Didn't use a blender just a whisk. Read More

I went according to the recipe except I used maple syrup instead of honey. I was skeptical at first. But I was pleasantly surprised at how well it came out! Read More
