Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge
I can’t tell you how many trays of fudge I made as a kid. Not only was it a holiday tradition at our house, but my mom would wrap bundles of it up with green and red ribbon to make gifts for family and friends. We had a great time making batch after batch, nibbling along the way… Thick, little squares of rich chocolate that would melt into shear happiness in your mouth!
The recipe was actually quite simple, but it was also full of dairy and refined sugar. I came up with the idea to make this Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge as a healthy homage to those sweet memories - with a twist. Like most of my recipes I bumped up the protein content while cutting some of the extra calories from sugar, but it’s the hint of sweet mint that really makes this treat stand out. These bite-size squares taste like Christmas! If you make these, tag me @lafemmevegan so I can see how yours turned out.
For the base of this recipe I used Tru Supplements Chocolate Mint Cookie protein powder from their Dessert Line to get the perfect flavor while keeping this recipe low-carb. It’s formulated to be a little bit sweeter, but it’s still sugar-free and just 20p/1f/2c per scoop like the rest of their plant-based protein flavors. Definitely, one of my favorites!
Some of my family members have to be mindful of their blood sugar now. So it’s nice to be able to bring goodies to the house that I know everyone can enjoy.
