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.
- ⅓ cup Coconut oil
- ⅓ cup raw honey
- ½ cup Cacoa powder
- In a medium saucepan, heat coconut oil over medium heat.
- Once melted, add raw honey and cacao powder, mix to combine.

*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.
