With all that being said, I thought it was only fitting to share a decadent chocolate treat recipe as a last HOOOOORAAAH! =) You will not be disappointed!
Paleo Chocolate Almond Fudge:
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut butter
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups dark chocolate (70% or higher is better!)
1 tbsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sea salt (& more to top with, if desired!)
1/2-3/4 cup chopped almonds (or other nut of your choice!)
In a medium size pot, add your oil, butter & milk. Heat over medium heat until hot and bubbling, stirring often. While that is heating, add your chocolate to a medium size bowl. When your wet mixture is hot, pour over the chocolate & use a spoon or scraper to gently mix until chocolate is completely melted. Do not over mix or your chocolate may get grainy. Then add in the extracts, salt & nuts. Gently stir to combine. Line an 8×8 glass baking dish with plastic wrap. (Have it come up over the edges as well.) Put in the freezer for about 45-60 minutes, until cold & solidified! Remove chocolate block by picking up each side of the plastic wrap, & gently transferring to a cutting board. Cut into small squares & enjoy! These are very rich & decadent, so a little square (or 2 ) should be enough! Store them in the freezer, they are yummy that way!
HAPPY CHALLENGE SEASON! <3
