Experience raw candy decadence at its finest! If you’re familiar with the taste of Mexican chocolate, then you know it can have a pungent bite.

With regular consumption of this luscious, nutrient-packed confection, you’ll see an increase in outer glow and feel a surge of inner vitality. It’s a must-have sweet treat for date night!

Ingredients:

• 1/2 cup raw, unrefined coconut oil
• 1 cup dried blueberries, sweetened with apple juice or unsweetened
• 1 cup raw cocoa (cacao) powder or natural unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1/2 cup almond butter, raw or roasted
• 2 tablespoons raw honey or agave nectar
• 1 teaspoon chili powder
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions:

1. If the coconut oil is solid, set the jar in a pan of very hot water or in a warm, sunny window to liquefy. Combine the coconut oil, blueberries, cocoa, almond butter, honey, chili powder, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt in a large bowl and stir to blend until a stiff ball forms. There will be small lumps of blueberries.

2. Coat the bottom of an 8-inch square pan with coconut oil or line with waxed paper. Spread the fudge mixture in the pan to an approximate depth of 1 inch. Cover and freeze for 1 hour, until very firm. Then remove from the freezer and let the mixture soften slightly for about 20 minutes. Cut the fudge into 1 1/2-inch squares.

3. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 months or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Do not allow the fudge to sit at room temperature for too long or it will melt.
