Peppermint Fudge

Fudge Fudge Fudge!! One of my all time favourite treats.

I came across this peppermint fudge recipe on the Wholefood Simply blog, and to say I was happy with how it turned out is an understatement!! FINALLY... a healthy 'fudge' that is actually soft and 'fudgey'! I really love this one, and I'm so excited that I now have a good understanding of how to make the fudge nice and soft, so that I can experiment and make other flavours of fudge by switching up some of the ingredients!

If you're a fan of fudge (I shall call us 'fudgies'), this is a must try!! Thank me later. Actually - thank Bianca from Wholefood Simply! She's amazing.

Let's get to it then. You'll need a high speed blender or food processor. I used my Optimum Blender.

INGREDIENTS
1 cup of Raw Cashews
1 cup of Desiccated Coconut
3 tablespoons of Honey
1/2 teaspoon of Natural Peppermint Extract

Pop the Cashews and Coconut into your blender, and blend until a smooth, thick paste forms. Add the Honey and Peppermint Extract, and blend together.

Once nicely combined, line a small container with baking paper and press the mixture firmly into it. Pop it into the fridge for an hour or so to set it, then cut it up to serve!

And that's seriously it! It doesn't get much more simple than that. TRY not to eat it all in one sitting. But if you do.. you can just whip up another batch!

Enjoy,
