“Soft batch he prefer the other bunch like they got for lunch
Chocolate fudge butter crunch”
I have a love/hate relationship with social media and networking. I find myself on Facebook way more often than I’d like and much of that time I end up disgruntled or full of anxiety. Sometimes, though, I end up learning about something awesome. Like this fudge. When I came across this recipe as I was scrolling through my feed, I was like “fudge yea! I have all of the ingredients for that!”
So that’s the type of thing that keeps me on Facebook. Well, that and I need to be reminded when’s the next time my favorite hip hop show is gonna be in town. Cause unfortunately I forget. But let’s get back on point. I love when I have all of the ingredients for a recipe. Today I was especially excited to see coconut oil as an ingredient cause I’ve been meaning to try the Tropical Traditions coconut oil that was sent to me to review.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here before, but we’re totally in love with coconut oil. There’s a lot of research on it and it’s health benefits, including it’s ability to reverse Alzheimer’s. It can be used as a moisturizer and hair conditioner – and also, it tastes like the bomb. Tropical Traditions did not disappoint! Most of all, I’m totally down with the company’s philosophy.
But enough about that. Let’s get back to the fudge… Aside from letting it cool in the freezer, it comes together in about five minutes. Need you know more? Get on it.
Eat all the squares, like you just don’t care.
