Oh yes. It's true. Awesome, melt-in-your-mouth chocolatey goodness with so very little guilt and so very little work! Why? Because coconut oil is so good for you and agave is a saint as far as sweeteners go. This is still dessert, but so much happier than a sugar rush!
1 1/2 cups coconut oil
1 1/4 cups agave
1 cup organic cocoa powder
1/2 tsp sea salt or real salt
1/8 scraped out vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla extract (could substitute peppermint extract just for fun!)
Liquefy coconut oil by setting jar or measuring cup in hot water. Place all ingredients in blender and mix well (it doesn't take much).
Pour into glass baking dish and spread evenly with spatula. Let set up at cool room temperature or in fridge. Cut into candy-sized pieces and enjoy. Store in refrigerator for up to 12 months.
A little finishing idea from my mother-in-law makes this into delectable truffles!
*Roll your fudge squares into little balls and roll them in cocoa powder for a deliciously lovely presentation.
** New experiments! This is SO good rolled in crushed almonds or cinnamon or both!
