When I was a kid, fudge was something that so rich and decadent it came around maybe once a year. I remember going to the candy shop and selecting a slice of my choice, that would be nibbled on for the week to follow. That stuff was like gold. But…as most “treats” are, full of sugar, fats, and carbs our bodies didn’t need.
In the era of “treat yo’ self” it’s a balance to find the limits when as a grown adult, I can get fudge whenever I want to! I can have it for breakfast. My body, my choice. As I’ve learned, those choices can add up, and your body will get angry. However, there’s always a healthier option.
Making this fudge, I was a little skeptical. The fact that it’s dairy free, refined sugar free – I wasn’t sure it was going to work.
Well, happy to report back that it did. It was well enjoyed after sharing with friends (who agreed, it’s delicious) and storing it in my freezer for days to come.
It’s softer than classic fudge, but I’m not complaining…it was too delicious!
Hope you try this “healthy” fudge and get your Fall treat fix!
