This post is going to be short but sweet (sweet because of the fudge…get it!) This fudge literally takes no time to prepare but you do have to wait patiently whilst it sets in the freezer.
I think chocolate and orange is one of the best flavour combinations and it works well in this fudge, but it does make it very more-ish..you have been warned!
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas with your friends and family and I’d like to thank you all for continuing to support me and my recipes!
-1/2 cup almond butter
-1/2 cup coconut oil
-3 Tbsp. cacao powder
-3 Tbsp. maple syrup
-1/4 cup cacao nibs
-zest of 1 orange, finely grated
-juice of half an orange (approx. 3 Tbsp.)
-pinch of salt
How To Make
Line a small dish with lightly oiled clingfilm or foil (I use coconut oil) set dish to one side.
Put the coconut oil and almond butter in a pan over a medium heat and melt gently, stirring often.
When the mixture has melted, add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture into the prepared dish.
Place a lid on the dish or cover well with foil and place in the freezer to set.
Once fudge has set, remove from the freezer and cut in to small pieces.
Serve straight from the freezer.
The fudge stores well in an airtight container in the freezer.
The other day I made myself a fresh juice which I haven’t done for a while now and decided to warm the juice up slightly as it was such a cold day. I love having a warmed juice and I then decided that I’d try the recipe again but this time I’d add some spices and see if that worked well and it does!
I must be honest but I’m not the biggest fan of hot chocolate, and now you’re probably wondering why on earth am I posting a hot chocolate recipe?! However, every so often I really fancy a hot chocolate on a cold evening so I was experimenting the other evening with flavours and came up with this little beauty.
Right now it is perfect soup weather in the UK (in my opinion). I love a bowl of soup to warm me up especially after I’ve been for a long walk with the dog and I always find soup filling too which helps keep me going all afternoon.
Okay, so this wasn’t going to be my post this week but since I had somewhat of a kitchen disaster this weekend recipe testing I had to use a reliable, trusty recipe and first on my list was this juice!
I love fresh juices, my juicer is used daily and I love coming up with different flavour combinations. If I’m making a smoothie I sometimes use a fresh juice as the liquid in my smoothie rather than water or milk. A fresh juice is also ideal to make the night before, store it in the fridge and take it with you if you have an early start. Just add a slice of lemon or lime when juicing to keep help keep it from browning.
