The blog recently has been somewhat busy with things inspired by or created by my mom, and this chocolate fudge recipe is no different. In that spirit, I’ve adapted one of her favorite holiday sweets to suit our preferences: 100% dark chocolate, no added sugars, and no dairy (sweetened condensed milk).
This is a fairly easy recipe that requires a good amount of patience and “hurry up and wait” skills. We condensed coconut milk in place of condensed milk, and while it wasn’t very difficult, it certainly took some time. Trust us, it’s worth the wait.
This post is just-in-time for Halloween, but might still be a great addition to any of your fun zombie themed show parties or birthday celebrations as well. Jello was definitely a favorite thing of mine growing up, but I’m fairly sure the impetus was because of the bright colors and abundance of sugar (the jiggling didn’t hurt, either). This combination of blood orange juice and apple cider mixes just the right amount of tart and sweet, without any added, concentrated sugar.
We wanted to bring along something fun to the Paleo Parent’s Halloween party, as we had been warned they do not mess around. The rumors were true, and you can read more about the fun we had with many like-minded foodies, authors, and bloggers. This brain was a pretty big hit, and we sent home leftovers with a few friends. We love brains, but even this is a treat we don’t want to overindulge!
