Double Layer Fudge

*adapted from PaleOMG*

OMG. This recipe has to be the best paleo dessert I’ve made to date. I get that “paleo desserts” aren’t exactly paleo – they can promote bad habits and are in all truth, not any good for you. This recipe is not a healthier version of fudge. Granted, it does omit some ingredients that are worse for you – flours, grains, etc., but it still has a significant amount of sugar, chocolate, and fat.

For me, it’s nice to be able to indulge every once in a while. Not to mention that I love baking and experimenting. I’m doing myself a disservice if I’m not trying new things in the kitchen. This recipe will not disappoint. It’s rich and super sweet so after two bites, I was satiated and happy as a clam. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 heaping tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • a handful of dark chocolate chips
  • extra sprinkle of unsweetened shredded coconut
Add your coconut oil to a food processor. It doesn’t have to be melted. Add your almond butter, unsweetened shredded coconut, vanilla extract, and honey and just a small pinch of salt. Mix all ingredients until fully combined.
Pour half the ingredients into a bread pan (I used 8×8) and use a spatula to spread out evenly. It doesn’t matter what size bread pan you use. Place in freezer to harden.
Place food processor bowl back on the motor and add your cocoa powder. Add 1-2 tablespoons at a time, mixing as you go to make sure you don’t use too much. Taste until you get the chocolate flavor you desire. Once cocoa powder is incorporated in, add a pinch of salt, mix thoroughly, then pour your chocolate fudge on top of your now hardened light fudge.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and a bit of salt and place is freezer for 10-15 minutes.
Cut, eat, devour. Store the rest in the fridge.
