Paleo Hot Fudge

    I’ll be honest, this recipe was created sort of by accident.  I was whipping up a batch of  chocolate coating for my Almond Butter Truffles that I have made a millions times and know off the top of my head (well I thought I did) and I mixed up the measurements.  Before I knew it I was stirring what was suppose to be a slightly thickened chocolate coating when a rich, creamy and thick concoction emerged instead.  This left my slightly confused and questioning what I did wrong.  I pulled out my recipe and realized that by accidently almost doubling the ingredients and letting it simmer for a tad too long this fudgy and delicious topping was born.  Of course I did what any intrigued chocolate lover would do…I tasted it.  Woah!  My mind was blown!  So here you have it, a creamy, decadent and rich paleo hot fudge.  Serve it on top of blended frozen bananas, in a smoothie, over paleo pancakes, or whatever you heart desires.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • ⅓  cup Coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup raw honey
  • ½ cup Cacoa powder

Directions:

  • In a medium saucepan, heat coconut oil over medium heat.
  • Once melted, add raw honey and cacao powder, mix to combine.
  • Let mixture come to a simmer, stirring frequently.
  • Let bubble for a few minutes to thicken.
  • Once thick, turn off heat and let cool slightly in sauce pan for a few minutes to continue to thicken*
  • Store in airtight container in the refrigerator and reheat in microwave to soften.**

Notes:

*I drain any liquid that may come to the surface.

**It will harden in the fridge, to reheat it I microwave it increments and stir in between.
