Remember how, a few posts ago, I rhapsodized over my homemade chocolate coconut hazelnut butter?
Sure you do. Here’s a photo to jog your memory:
Several of you wonderful people immediately dashed off to your kitchen(s) to try your hand(s) at this decadent nut butter, and I was elated to discover that you liked the outcome as much as I did. Emma and Errign, take a bow.
However, after making this nut butter for myself for the second time (a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do), I discovered something magical. Something fantastic. Something akin to the triumph of hearing your mother finally acquiesce to your pleas to buy a Tamagotchi (hello, grade five).
In the fridge, chocolate coconut hazelnut butter solidifies into vegan chocolate coconut hazelnut fudge. HUZZAH.
Simply pour the nut butter into a container so that it’s about a centimetre thick (or as thick as you’d like, really), and then pop the container into the fridge for a little while.
Soon, the nut butter will harden into a fudge-like creation that you can cut into little squares and pop in your mouth at will. The wondrous chocolate, hazelnut, coconut, and vanilla flavours are still there, but you no longer have to deal with the raised eyebrows of your loved ones when they discover you at 11pm with a spoon of nut butter in your mouth.
Because fudge is more legitimate than spoonfuls of nut butter, apparently.
Oh, and if you don’t like fudge?
(First, how dare you?)
Here. Have part of a Saguaro Cactus from five-year-old me instead.
