FAKE FUDGE

Guess what? That almond coconut and cacao butter stuff that I made yesterday, where I chucked a bunch of stuff in the food processor. Well, let me tell you, from the fridge today, it's nothing like a nut butter or chocolate nut spread. More like a fake fudge of sorts, but without the sickly sweet or grainy texture.

It's delicious.

I'll make it again and take pictures because next go, I'll pour it into a traybake and cut it into squares. It's neat, sometimes I'll go to make one thing, say a nut butter but end up with something completely different but equally as fun.

In other news, we finally got a nice Saturday filled with snow. Granted, it's not buckets of snow, but it is just enough to bring on that Christmassy kinda magic.

I love it.

  1. Like the sound of your fudge Ivy, mind you I like the really sweet stuff. We had snow last night and it is snowing here today, off and on.

    1. This doesn't have any cane, beet or corn sugar, but it would be easy enough to add. No problems.

      Enjoy your dinner party tonight. I'm looking forward to reading about it.

      Cheers and boogie boogie.

  2. Snow? Wow. We have the cold but now the sun is out and it's beautiful. Next week all rain, not good leading up to Christmas, but we do need it!

  3. That's a pretty good result when you unexpectedly end up with fudge.

    1. Enjoy your night out tonight and Happy Christmas. Hope there's good foods there, too.

      Yes, not to bad ending up with a fudge-like creation, void of rubbish ingredients.

  6. Snow? Jealous thoughts. We are deep in the sweaty season here. Too deep.
    I am pretending I didn't read about your fudge. I love it, and should avoid it.

    1. I saw that wow, what a difference. I love the snow but a hot xmas, I wouldn't mind either.

      Thanks for stopping by. I got my feet to finally show up on your Followers thing. Google, had taken it upon themselves to switch my profile. But I found the blogger profile and changed it back.

      Anyway, nice to meet you. You take great pictures and wow, what a view you have.

  8. Very cool about the fake fudge. And even cooler about the snow. Maybe you'll have a white Christmas, after all. Nothing here yet!

  9. Sounds like the snow magic jumped over to your nut butter faux fudge! Magic! White Christmas sounds nice, we have extremely wet and grey up here :)

  10. I'm not a fan of fudge. Too sweet for me.

    It was freezing here today, but no snow. Whew! Supposed to be warmer next week. Yay!

  14. I am happy to hear that you had snow. We still don't have any, which is okay with me.

  15. Yay for snow! I sure miss that white stuff during the holidays! It just doesn't seem right having Christmas with no snow :-(

  16. A white Christmas?! Nice! It doesn't look like we'll have that here, but I don't mind so much--would rather have this nicer weather any day. Last Christmas it was in the 50s, and we went for a bike ride! We Iowans aren't used to this type of weather in December, but we'll take it! Awesome that you unintentionally found a wonderful fudge you enjoy. Looking forward to photos!
