Double Layer Chocolate and Coconut Raw Fudge

October 23, 2012

Chocolate craving anyone?

If you didn’t have one, you sure will by the end of this post!

This recipe is amazing! Raw, organic, easy, fast and DELICIOUS!

No refined sugar and yet this recipe is still amazing!!!

The bottom layer is a bit like the bottom layer of a Nanaimo bar. Soft, chewy and full of coconut goodness!

The chocolate ganache on top just melts in your mouth!

I brought this to work without telling anyone that this was a raw and “refined sugarless” and no one could tell that it was a “healthier” version of a fudge/brownie!

I mean, look at them! Standing there, looking all delicious and calling my name!

See the two layers? They sure will satisfy your chocolate cravings!

Whatcha waiting for?
