super easy fudge
My daughter’s nursery school hosted a Mother’s Day tea last week. They sang to us and served us tea and snacks. When I arrived at my seat, this oh so sweet poem was awaiting me. I mean, how special is that? All the moms – we all tried to hold it together but there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
The day before, she and her classmates had made fudge to serve at the little buffet table. As a surprise, I made some fudge at home for the two of us to share (so she wouldn’t feel left out). When she caught a glimpse of it, she couldn’t contain her excitement. She’d never had the pleasure of eating fudge before. It was such a special treat. Side note: My children don’t tolerate coconut – so I didn’t attempt to make this with coconut oil or coconut milk – but I imagine it would be divine.
super easy fudge
1 package Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup cashew cream* (see note below)
1 tblsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp bourbon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
1.) Lightly grease an 8×8 glass dish. Set aside.
2.) Place the chocolate chips, cashew cream, vanilla, and oil in a glass heatproof dish. Stir well to combine.
3.) Microwave for 1 minute.
4.) Stir the mixture very well, until all the lumps are gone and pour into the glass dish. Using a spatula, spread out the fudge into an even layer.
5.) Sprinkle the chopped walnuts over the top.
6.) Put in the fridge to set, anywhere from three hours to overnight.
7.) Cut into 1/2 inch squares
*Note: Place one half cup soaked raw cashews in the blender with 1 cup of water. The result will be creamy raw cashews in the form of a cream. Soak the cashews for at least 4 hours before blending.
