Healthy Almond Coconut Fudge

This is a fun, easy treat to make. Seriously, so easy! I made it a few weeks ago when I had a mad chocolate craving. Next time, I think I'll try substituting with peanut butter and sprinkling m&m's on top for the kids. That would be a great after school snack!

Healthy Coconut Almond Fudge (adapted from Creating Naturally)
1/2 c. virgin coconut oil, melted
1/2 c. roasted & salted almond butter
1/2 c. cocoa
1/4 c. agave (I used a bit less)
1/4 t. vanilla
3 T. roasted almonds
2 T. shredded coconut (I used unsweetened)
 
In a microwave safe bowl, combine coconut oil and almond butter. Microwave for a few seconds to soften. Stir in cocoa, agave, and vanilla.
 Pour into a lined 9x9" pan. Sprinkle with almonds and coconut. Refrigerate until firm.
 Once it has firmed up, cut into squares.
 Oh, it just melts in your mouth! Be sure to keep it in the fridge or it will get soft and gloopy. I guess that's not a bad thing if you want to eat it with a spoon, haha!
Enjoy!
