I did not invent this recipe but I named it. This killer fudge is made with healthy ingredients like coconut oil (instead of butter) and agave syrup (instead of sugar). But the ingredient that really puts this fudge over the top is the peppermint oil (I use doTERRA because I trust that it’s safe and even beneficial to ingest).
From the book Modern Essentials
Peppermint Healthy Fudge
- 1 1/2 c. coconut oil
- 1 1/4 c. agave
- 1 c. cocoa powder
- 1/2 t. sea salt
- 1 t. vanilla extract
- 2 drops peppermint essential oil (I used doTERRA)
Warm coconut oil until liquid. Combine all ingredients and mix well. (The recipe called for a blender but I just hand-mixed and that worked fine) Pour into 8 x 8 baking dish and spread evenly. Chill at least a couple of hours before slicing.
Can’t wait to serve this at my upcoming open house!
