chocolate fudge sauce by the spoonful

Okay, I admit this doesn’t look too pretty, but for a pregnant lady in need of a home made chocolate treat now, this totally did the trick.

In a small sauce pan over low heat, stir together:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp all-natural nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • one shake of salt

Truthfully, I did not measure in any precise way as my recipe may lead you to believe. Instead, in my “I want chocolate now” mindset, I simply spooned out 2 big tbs of coconut oil, poured 2 overflowing tbs of syrup, scooped in almond butter and rounded 2 tbs of cocoa powder plus a dash of salt. Feel free to adjust as you see fit đŸ™‚

Mix it until well combined and everything is melted. This mixture is HOT! I blew on it and ate it from the pot anyway. You could use this as a sauce, but  eventually I tested my (proven very short) patience and poured the remainder onto a plate lined with wax paper and let it set in the fridge for about 10 mins. The result is a gooey, not yet chilled chocolate pudding like sauce. Very Yummy!!
