Are you looking for a simple, healthy sweet treat that will please a crowd?
Do you want something that will satisfy a sweet tooth yet won’t make you feel guilty for partaking?
I submit to you … Freezer Fudge.
It’s so simple and so delicious you’ll want to experiment with your own ingredients. Play with other flavor combinations, and see what you can create! I use 1/2 cup each of coconut oil in liquid state. You can use less if this tastes too coconutty. (Yes, that’s a word. You know exactly what I mean).
- 1/2 cup of almond butter (my favorite nut butter) or organic, non-GMO peanut butter
- 1/4 cup organic cocoa or carob powder (melted down Ecuadorian dark chocolate, also works beautifully)
- 1/3 cup of grade B maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 drops of Peppermint Vitality essential oil*
- Sea salt to taste
Mix the coconut oil and almond butter until they’re emulsified; then add the chocolate of your choice and the syrup. When these are well blended, add the vanilla, chia seeds, and salt. Set mini paper muffin tins on a cookie sheet and pour the mixture into the tins. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer until the mixture is firm. For speed, the mixture can be poured into a freezer-safe dish and frozen for a couple of hours. You can line the dish with parchment paper first if you’re not using a non-stick pan. Once frozen, cut the pieces into desired serving sizes.
Please note that these will melt, hence the name freezer fudge, so be mindful of when you serve them. For those wondering about the coconut oil, if you add less oil take note that the fudge will be thicker. My husband, who doesn’t care for coconut flavor, loves these little things!
*You all know that for the last decade I’ve researched and learned about essential oils and the safety of taking them internally. I only trust Young Living Essential Oils. They have an entire Vitality line of oils used as dietary supplements.
Watch me whip them up in no time!
Here is what they look like in the mini paper cups or if they’re frozen in a dish … better than the name-brand version and it doesn’t take that much extra time!
