As my SO is a fudge lover, making her a batch for valentines day was an obvious gift. The only thing about fudge that i'm not crazy about is all the sugar that goes into it. So I set out to make a fudge using honey.
I used this recipe from the Joy in My Kitchen blog with a few modifications.
Ingredients (The following quantities made a heck of a lot of fudge. Feel free to adjust to your needs.)
3/4 C organic butter
1 1/2 C coconut heaven Chocolate from Chocosol
3/4 C crystallized honey from our hives (any raw honey will do, but crystalized probably gets the final texture a little more solid quicker)
The chocolate I used was 65% cacao and already had some sweetener and coconut butter added. So I ended up using much less honey and butter in proportion to chocolate than the original recipe called for. As a sweet fiend I think it's still good and sweet and I probably would have cut back on the honey regardless.
The chocolate came in bar form so the first step was to turn it into a powder in the food processor. Then I mixed all the ingredients together in a large bowl. I used a hand blender to achieve a smooth finely mixed consistency. The result was a very soft fudge that was very easy to mold and a taste I'm totally in love with.
