Frozen Chocolate Fudge Bites
So the other night I was experimenting with a recipe I was hoping would turn into a delicious fudge. I ended up adding in too much coconut milk which resulted in chocolate stuff that just wouldn't solidify like I was hoping. My first thought was, "ok I guess that was an epic fail fudge making session." But then I decided I would just improvise and pop this chocolatey half solid, pudding like stuff into the freezer and see what I could do with it. I waited until it was frozen and cut it into squares like you would if making fudge. I put them into a container and left them in the freezer. I had company over the next day so I told them they could try my messed up fudge recipe. They all tried it and surprisingly they were a hit!! They told me I had to share the recipe. So here I am sharing with all of you my fudge recipe fail which ended up into frozen bites of chocolate deliciousness. They are hard, but melt in your mouth like an ice-cream bar does. Sometimes mistakes can be blessings in disguise!!
I hope you guys will all enjoy these sweet treats that you can also feel good about eating since they are full of healthy fats from Grass Fed Butter Ghee and Coconut Oil! You can also make this version easily Vegan by subbing out all the butter/ghee for more coconut oil and subbing out the raw honey for maple syrup!
Servings: 8X8 square pan cut into 1 inch squares
- 1 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
- 1/2 cup Raw Cacao Powder
- 1 Stick/1/2 cup Grass Fed Butter or Ghee softened ( for vegan version add additional coconut oil)
- 1/4 cup Raw Honey (for vegan sub maple syrup for honey)
- 1/4 c Dairy Free Dark Chocolate Chips
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- Pinch of Sea Salt
- In a high speed blender add the coconut milk, coconut oil, and butter and blend.
- When milk and oil is blended completely add the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Continue to blend until the mixture is a smooth consistency with no lumps. This should take 1-2 minutes of continuous blending.
- Line just the bottom of an 8x8 pan/dish ( I used my a pyrex) with bleach free parchment paper.
- Add your blended mixture to the pan. Last sprinkle the chocolate chips and lightly stir so that the chips get mixed in but still allow some to be near the top.
- Put the pan/dish into the freezer and allow to freeze completely this will take a couple hours.
- When the mixture is completely frozen take it out and let it sit for a few minutes to slightly soften to make it easier to cut. being very careful use a sharp knife to cute your frozen mixture into approximately 1- 1.5 inch squares. Immediately store in a container or a ziplock bag and store in your freezer.
- These can be enjoyed straight out of the freezer. They can get messy as they melt pretty quickly in our fingers!!
