Recipe Friday: Chocolate Covered Katie’s Fudge Babies
Posted August 27, 2010on:
It’s been a while since I’ve felt so strongly about a recipe I found on a food blog. But when Katie titles her page Make.These.Now., she’s totally right.
I won’t steal Katie’s thunder, as this young woman has used her culinary magic to create her own recipe for these healthy, chocolaty tidbits. But the basic idea: puree pitted dates with cashews (or other nuts, which changes the flavor) into a paste, along with dark cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Holy yum! Seriously, you guys! This does not taste like health food!
She rolls them into balls like little truffles, or forms them into bars. I’m thinking my next batch may be pressed into an 8×8 pan and cut up like brownies.
Lots of flavor options that I have yet to explore, that she lists on the site, too! To check ’em out, and to get exact proportions, again, check out Katie’s site. Throughout the rest of her site, you’ll find all sorts of vegan experiments. I bet they taste great, too!
So, try these out, and lemme know what you think! Not a single artificial ingredient!
