Healthy Almond Joy Candy Fudge
Ohhhh yes. Almond Joy Candy Fudge. My heart just skipped a beat!
Wait, did I say that already?
It appears I did, but you can’t blame me… I mean, c’mon, just look at that bite!
Chocolate and coconut pair like no other, but the almond extract is what brightens up each bite. It’s just as soft and sweet and chewy as the real-deal candy bar, all without the refined sugar, trans fats, preservatives, and artificial ingredients.
This Almond Joy Candy Fudge is healthy without the healthy taste!
Yes, this fudge is refined sugar free, high fiber, high protein, and gluten free too! I still can’t believe it, and I’m the one who made them.
This Almond Joy Candy Fudge is healthy but doesn't taste healthy at all. It's just as soft, sweet and chewy as the original, but without the white sugar, hydrogenated oil, preservatives, and artificial ingredients. This fudge is refined sugar free, high fiber, high protein, and gluten free too!
Line an 8x8” brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
In a small bowl, whisk together the protein powder, cocoa powder, and salt.
In a large bowl, stir together the melted coconut butter and honey. Whisk in the coconut milk, then whisk in the almond extract and stevia extract.
Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir together until completely combined (mixture should look like a dark paste). Scoop this into the prepared pan and spread it out. Press to flatten in an even layer. Place the pan in the fridge while you make the coconut layer.
In a small bowl, whisk together the protein powder and optional CBD isolate.
In a large bowl, stir together the melted coconut butter and honey. Whisk in the coconut milk, then whisk in the stevia extract.
Stir in the shredded coconut until completely combined. Scoop the mixture over the chilled chocolate layer and spread it out. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
Feel free to press whole almonds onto the top layer before refrigerating!
Feel free to drizzle these with chocolate… I have no idea why I just thought of that now?!? Oh well, yet another reason to make these again 😉
You will be in heaven once you sink your teeth into these! Enjoy 🙂
With love and good eats,
