Above is the link to the Oh She Glows website. If you have not already checked it out, you must!! It is awesome!!
I adapted this to my salty, almondy taste buds and for my Channel 8 Good Morning CT at Nine segment.
I felt I had to break out the “big guns” because last time I was on Good Morning CT at 9 there was a very nice man making some pretty scrumptious smelling wings! I do not eat meat so as much as the flavors smelled amazing, I was not tempted. However, the staff and guests were lined up to try his wings! I thought… hmmm, a few people always come to sample my healthy vegan options but never a line! Why is there not a line for my carrots and hummus?!?😂😂
I know! Chocolate! I will woo them with CHOCOLATE!!
Below is the link to the segment on the show. I LOVE my Monday morning on channel 8. So fun and I love that I get to already the healthy word!
I will fast forward to the recipe.
Remember, this is still a decadent treat so be aware of your portions. The ingredients far surpass those of a traditional highly processed fudge or chocolate dessert but make sure you pack in your greens before indulging!
This Salted Almond Freezer Fudge goes REALLY well with a nice glass of red wine! I’m just sayin’…
1/2 Cup virgin coconut oil (room temp. Liquid form)
1/2 Cup pure maple syrup
1/2 Cup cocoa powder
1/4 Cup almond butter
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 Cup chopped raw almonds
Coarse sea salt to sprinkle
-In a mixing bowl, whisk together liquid coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla until well blended and creamy.
– Sift in the cocoa powder and mix well.
– Add chopped nuts, mix well.
– Pour into a parchment paper lined 8×8 or 9×9 pan.
– Sprinkle Coarse Sea salt to taste.
– Place in the freezer for at least one hour.
– Cut into desired size pieces and store in the freezer.
At room temperature this little slice of chocolate heaven will get very meaty and messy so be sure to serve straight from the freezer.
