When it comes to celebrating our family doesn’t usually over indulge. My kids, 5 years old, have picked up on my coaching my clients on choosing better options than refined sugar treats. I was proud to hear that my daughter wanted to make something that was relatively healthy for a treat for my birthday. So we decided to make Cacao Fudge. I found the original recipe here from Daily Dish Magazine. I adapted it to be vegan and to use the superfood cacao. It turned out so great!

I gave the recipe to my daughter to follow and she did all of it on her own. She is one talented little girl and I look forward to the bakery/cafe that my girls want to open when they are old enough.


Cacao Fudge

This fudge has a slight chocolate bitter taste, like dark chocolate, but the subtle sweetness from the agave. It is perfect for a small treat for after dinner.
