Sweet Craving? Five-Ingredient Paleo Fudge to the Rescue!

Paleo Fudge Featured Image
After every meal, I need something sweet, and I mean need. Otherwise, I spend the rest of the day or night thinking about cheesecake and cookies (literally). I’m talking breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s a horrible habit I’ve been trying to break, but it might just be the hardest thing I ever do in life. Lo and behold though, I found a healthy option for my fellow sweet-cravers that is beyond delicious and, by golly, it’s also natural, simple and easy to make! No, it’s not dark chocolate or a delicious smoothie (although those are awesome, too). It’s something I discovered about a year ago and now have stocked in my freezer all the time. So what is this secret dessert, you ask? It’s called Paleo Fudge and and here’s the kicker — it’s just five ingredients!
Yes, FIVE ingredients! I know, crazy, right? No oven or stove required. Just a blender and some muffin tins, and you are good to go. I like to tell people they taste like a hybrid between a Peanut Butter Cup and an Almond Joy. I’m actually not a big of coconut, but for some reason, this combination just works. And because I tend to over indulge a little on dessert — and I’m not talking just frequency as mentioned, but portion, too — these are perfect for me as one is plenty (this is coming from the girl who could eat a whole cheesecake by herself). They are so rich and satisfying. And I’m down for any recipe that has only enough ingredients to count on one hand!

Five-Ingredient Paleo Fudge Recipe

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup high quality cocoa powder
1/2 cup smooth almond or peanut butter
1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
First, melt the coconut oil. Then blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth.
Pour into paper-lined muffin tin cups or silicon muffin cups and fill half-inch full.
Chill for 30 minutes or freeze for 10 minutes. When firm, remove. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer and enjoy! Mmm-mmm!
This recipe makes about 10, but I usually double it because, quite honestly, 10 is not enough.
How stinkin’ easy was that? Will you try making Paleo Fudge? ––Erika
