Nutty Mint Fudge~Raw!

A couple days ago, I tried a fudge recipe from GNOWFLGLINS.  Because I had recently used a generous amount of carob powder in another recipe, I decided not to make the dark side of the marbled fudge.  Truth be told, we had actually run out of vanilla too.  So...

I took the advice of Ms. Wardeh, who posted the recipe, and added spearmint extract instead.  I also added some chopped almonds, and Voil√†!


They tasted rather yummy despite my impartiality towards coconut cream concentrate in recipes.  Papa said he could eat coconut cream all day, so he definitely loved them!

To make a batch of these yummy, coconutty, nutty, minty fudge squares, have on hand the following:

Ingredients
1/2 cup coconut cream concentrate*
aprox. 1/2-1 tbsp coconut oil (liquid but not hot)
aprox. 1 1/2-2 tbsp. raw honey (or to taste)
A handful of almonds or nut of your choice
A drop (or two) of spearmint (or peppermint) oil

Directions
First, chop the almonds or run through the food processor, then set aside.  Place coconut cream into empty food processor and spin until rather finely ground.  Then add coconut oil and honey.  At this point, you can remove the mix to a bowl and add the nuts, mixing with your hands.  Then, add the mint extract and make sure it is mixed thoroughly.

Pat into a small glass pan or other container on hand and refrigerate for about 30-60 minutes.  Then cut into small squares and enjoy!

As I hope you will do.  Until next time...      Blessings!  ~ Leah
