    Fudge

    Shop Now
    Okay, so fudge is not exactly primal, but I was wondering if anyone had tips for making the stuff 'fudgy'. I made some yesterday for the first time, but it came out more like soft chocolate candy in texture. I mixed equal parts of coconut oil (melted), butter, cocoa powder, and raw honey. Is there something else I should be adding to get it more fudge-like in texture?
    I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.

    o Fudge

    Try making coconut butter with a FP and flakes using that as a base rather than CO. The recipe link I've made and really loved it.

    last summer I made a fudge for a church function using avocado. I came home from church with an empty pan. Wish I could remember the recipe.

    I think date paste gives a fudgy texture. Assuming a microwave doesn't freak you out, heat some dates briefly in a microwave, which makes them easy to mash with your fingers, no food processor required.

    I did this yesterday. Split 4 dates open, remove pit, place in bowl with 1/4c water, and microwaved 30 seconds. Flipped over. Microwaved another 30 sec. Removed skins and tossed in food processor. Worked like a charm

    Where did I say equal parts?! Use some common sense?! Enough to sweeten??
