Oh, Baby! Crazy about Fudge Babies…

31 Mar

Fudge Babies, Baby!

My new favorite sweets come from my sweetie!

Fudge babies are simply out-of-bounds. Since Esposita started us down the Paleo path, we’ve had to re-think desserts and sweets. She found a recipe that I just can’t get enough of. Here is the recipe for my new sweet genius…

  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1 1/3 cup of dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of cocoa powder

That’s the original recipe. Esposita adds…

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup of desired nuts (almonds, pecans, cashews)
  • She uses almond flavoring instead of vanilla
  • Coconut to make it moister

In addition, for a variety she has added…

  • Espresso
  • Almond butter instead of the almond flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Ripe bananas

Put all ingredients into a food processor, roll in balls, and enjoy.

P.S. I like them better after having been refrigerated for a little while.

Eat well.
