Fudge Babies

These are and will always be a personal favorite. When we were vegans, and now paleo-- it was difficult to find desserts that worked with our dietary choices. But then we found a GREAT resource for all these amazing and EASY desserts. Check out http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/

Listed below is a basic recipe but it can be modified to fit whatever you want! We often make with shredded coconut too! She has a ton of variations and once you practice a few times you can make your own variation!

Original Fudge Babies

(paleo fudge balls)

  • 1 cup walnuts 
  • 1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • optional: 1/8 plus 1/16 tsp salt (I always add this)
  • optional: raw chocolate chips – (we use cocoa nibs)

Blend all the ingredients, using a food processor (which works much better than a blender.) Roll into little balls.
