Valentine’s Day is upon us, and while it isn’t the biggest holiday celebrated, I simply had to create a special recipe for it. Of course, it needed to be chocolate, which is what led me to creating today’s decadent recipe…fudge. Though I’ve created plenty of freezer fudges before, I wanted to make something that was more stable at room temperature. I’ve always heard of dessert recipes using avocado, but I’ve never ventured out and tried it myself. However, after today’s recipe, I am truly hooked on the idea. You truly cannot taste any trace of avocado in this recipe, as the richness of the chocolate overwhelms your tastebuds in the best way possible. Overall, this fudge is rich, it’s creamy, and super deep in chocolate, just as a good fudge should be. For added texture, I topped mine with chocolate chips and flaked Maldon sea salt, though chopped nuts or flaked coconut would also be a great addition. While this recipe is not 100% AIP adaptable, if you are looking to experiment, try substituting the unsweetened chocolate for coconut butter, cocoa powder for carob, and butter for non-hydrogenated palm shortening. Enjoy!
