Will Run For Cashew Butter & Ginger Fudge

Cashew Butter & Ginger Fudge

Friends don't send friends fudge recipes. 

 They do however make fudge & drop off just a piece or two on your doorstep.  I'm convinced that my cousin jennifer-lynn who is currently very busy growing baby *Penny is trying to fatten me up.  She's mean like that.

With that being said unless you can be responsible & eat just one or two servings of fudge (clearly, not describing myself) I suggest not licking the bowl spoon or eating a few pieces as you pack it into a container. Instead make it for a special occasion (every day from now until Christmas holidays is not a celebration) and get it out of your house fast!  It's that ridiculously delicious.

Cashew Butter & Ginger Fudge
(23 pieces)

Ingredients

1 C cashew butter
1/8 cup maple syrup
3 slices crystallized ginger chopped (mix 1/2 into the batter & sprinkle the rest on top)
1/4 tsp pink himalayan sea salt
1/3 C melted coconut oil
1/8 C ground cocoa nibs + 1/8 C cocoa ( 1/4 C of cocoa will work just fine)

Directions

Mix all ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl until well combined.  Pour into a silicone loaf pan.  Sprinkle with chopped crystallized ginger.  Place in the freezer for 1 hour (checking repeatedly to see if it's ready won't help).  Remove from freezer just before serving.  Share.

* not the baby's actual name but who wouldn't want to be named Penny.
