Almond Butter Fudge!

Yea finally a healthier way to enjoy fudge around the holidays – or really any time! I love me some fudge and used to make it every year and allow myself to indulge and gain 5-10 pounds because well….’it was the holidays!’ Now I still let myself indulge just a little bit more responsibly. 
Gluten free & vegan too! For the coconut milk look for the full fat kind in a can.  I like Thai organic coconut milk.  I had on hand Hershey Cacao Powder from my daughters baking supplies (sshh..don’t tell her lol!) and this time I used Nut Butter from Trader Joes – everything but peanuts in it and it is sooo creamy and easy to pour in the pan so it worked beautifully! I mean look at those layers! Yum! 
The sprinkle of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt really adds the tastiest touch at the end.  I cut them into squares after they froze and wrapped them individually to stash in my freezer as a special treat!  Of course you can make these and bring to your holiday party to share with friends and family – maybe cut them smaller so they are little indulgent treats! As you can see mine are a bit larger.  
Tip: Use a bread pan to make them a little thicker and parchment paper lined on the bottom for easy lift off and clean up. 
Either way they are good! Would love to hear if you give them a try and how you liked them!
