Super Fudge


Makes about 40 pieces


1 cup cocoa butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

3/4 cup creamy almond butter (or peanut butter)

1 cup agave nectar (or honey)


Melt cocoa butter by placing in a large (pyrex) glass bowl over boiling water. Stir in vanilla extract.


Once the cocoa butter has liquefied, add the remaining ingredients one at a time either stirring by hand with a wooden spoon or alternatively you may combine all of the ingredients in a food processor for a smooth fudge.


Transfer the fudge mixture to a large baking sheet or baking dish lined with waxed paper or plastic wrap. Smooth out the top surface with either a frosting spreader or spatula.


Refrigerate the fudge for about 30 minutes until it becomes firm. Cut into 1-inch to 1 1/2-inch squares.
