One of my favorite holiday gifts to give out is homemade fudge.  Each year I make a couple batches of my famous Peanut Butter Fudge, pack them in pretty gift boxes and hand them out to friends and loved ones.  This year I wanted to stick with the fudge theme but keep it simple for those that don’t like peanut butter (Gasp!  I know.  Who doesn’t like PB?  Sadly, my son.).  This fudge is my family’s favorite ice cream topper.  I love giving out gifts like this to people.  If one bit of this fudge sauce doesn’t convince them that natural, wholesome foods don’t taste the best then nothing else will!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (yields about 1/2 cup of coconut cream)
  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar or raw honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Preparation:

  1. Place the can of coconut milk in the fridge for 2-3 hours.  The coconut cream will settle to the top and separate from the coconut water below.
  2. Carefully remove the coconut cream (you should end up with just over a 1/2 cup of cream) and place it in a saucepan over low heat.  Add the remaining ingredients, except the cocoa powder and stir well.
  3. Once the coconut oil has melted and the coconut nectar has loosened slowly add the cocoa powder one tablespoon at a time.  You want to go slowly so you don’t develop any lumps.
  4. Remove from heat and let the fudge sauce cool for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Carefully pour the fudge sauce into a glass container.  Make sure whatever container you use is microwave safe.
  6. Let the fudge sauce cool completely before sealing with the lid.
