What if we told you that you could make the most decadent holiday fudge with only 7 organic ingredients (plus salt), zero refined sugar, and not a stitch of dairy? What if we also told you this fudge would help uplift your mood and calm any holiday tension? Nope, this isn't a Christmas miracle although this recipe is pretty miraculous.
Next Level Fudge
This fudge is the perfect thing to share with friends and family or to stash in your fridge to have on hand when a chocolate craving hits.
A creamy blend of stone ground coconut butter combines with Rawmio Hazelnut Mint Spread to create a rich and fudge-like texture. A little extra raw cacao amps up the dark chocolate flavor, while a few soaked dates add natural sweetness. The result is a wholesome holiday treat full of healthy fats (from the coconut and walnuts!) and antioxidant flavonols (from the cacao!) that's suitable for almost every dietary preference: raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and even paleo.
CBD: a super-powered superfood
Adding CBD to recipes is a great way to add a therapeutic, functional twist. What is CBD exactly? CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is one of around 60 different cannabinoids now isolated from the cannabis species of plant. Unlike its famous cousin THC, CBD is non-psychoactive – meaning it won't produce a high. On the contrary, CBD has highly therapeutic effects, interacting with a network of cannabinoid receptor sites found throughout the body known as our endocannabinoid system. One of the main benefits of CBD is the way it modulates our nervous system. CBD has a calming effect and offers support for many areas of our health including overall mood balance, immunity, quality of sleep, and can even be helpful in managing pain and/or inflammation. What better way to infuse the benefits of CBD into a holiday treat than with our NEW USDA Certified Organic CBD extract in flavor Peppermint. Yes, we did say actually, fully, truly, an official certified organic. This is an industry first!
This is such a simple treat, it's so easy to make, and has such a wealth of benefits. Enjoy!
