Hello & Happy Monday, you beautiful birds! It’s chocolate day here at LK HQ and we are busting out a good one – chocolate fudge! It’s pure heaven and it’s perfect to share, gift, or indulge in after a good meal. Thankfully, Foodie Bad Ass Constance Higley brings her A-game and knocks this guy out of the park. Can’t wait to hear what y’all think! – xoxo, LK
Hello friends! Constance here. Remember how we said Mondays were made for chocolate? We weren’t kidding. It’s what we live for…at least on Mondays. I’ve always steered clear from any sort of fudge recipe, thinking it was way out of my league. And the whole tahini thing (see recipe) threw me for a complete loop. But like with anything that may seem scary, once you get started you realize it’s truly easy and so worth it. And any recipe that I can make the day before a dinner party and freeze overnight is 1000 times worth it!
If you love chocolate, dessert, a good time, or a delicious recipe – this little guy is absolutely for you! Check it out and see what I mean…
-1/2 cup pure maple syrup
-3 tablespoons coconut oil
-340g hulled tahini
-2 tablespoons cocoa powder
-3 teaspoons vanilla extract
-sea salt flakes
-Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
-Slowly heat the maple syrup and coconut oil until just melted.
-Remove mixture from heat and add the tahini, cocoa powder and vanilla extract.
-Mix together until combined into a smooth, runny paste.
-Transfer mix to prepared 8×8 pan, and top with sea salt flakes.
-Place pan in freezer for at least 4 hours to set.
-Remove from freezer, but into small squares, and serve immediately.
