Let’s talk about a lil’ homemade fudge, shall we?
I’ve never made fudge.
This was a first. I usually like to bake desserts but I thought it’d be fun to make something a little bit different this time around. Plus, when all those boxes of stale chocolate pile up for the holidays, you just want something, well fresh n’ different. Right?
If you’re already thinking there’s no way you have time to make this fudge recipe on a weeknight, think again. I’ve always been a fan of make-ahead desserts and this one is perfect to keep in the fridge until your sweet tooth begs for a nibble or until your holiday party at work.
All you’ve gotta do to make this fudge is toss together a few ingredients in a food processor and then transfer it to a flat pan to chill in the fridge. Easy as pie. Or Easy as fudge, in this case.
O and did I mention that it’s gluten free, dairy free and vegan? Ya, I forgot about telling you that. You won’t believe how creamy and tasty it is. Seriously. I thought I’d never say it, but it was one of the most succulent treats I’ve ever sunk my teeth into.
I like to top my fudge with a little lemon yogurt topping and sea salt. But almond butter and powdered sugar would be great, too!
So what are you waiting for? Get thee into the kitchen and whip up some fudge, people. You’ll be the hit of your holiday party, especially when all the gluten-free and dairy-free folks can actually eat your treat.
Plus, you can feel good about eating a lil’ square each night. I’m keeping a stash in my freezer for those midnight munchies. Ya know what I mean?
And don’t forget to head over to my Facebook Page where I’m hosting the ’25 Days of Christmas’ Giveaway Every Day. I’m giving away a new gluten-free gift everyday from December 1st-December 25th.
Enjoy and Good Luck!
