Sugarfree Fudge?

I ate a lot of sugar the week of Valentine’s Day.  You could say I was pretty close to being sick of all of it.  In fact, it’s partially what inspired me to give it up for Lent.  However, I was curious and intrigued by this alternative to sugary chocolate that I found on Pinterest.  So, Michael and I decided to try to make it last weekend.  It might possibly have been a fail.  I’ll explain why in a minute.  Here’s our recipe adventure:

We didn’t hate it, but we didn’t love it either.  The consistency was that of fudge, but I think if we make it in the future, we will have to go to Whole Foods for the coconut butter.  It’s not that we hate Whole Foods, but it’s just not our ordinary shopping place, so we would have to make a special trip.

Have you ever had a recipe flop or flatten before?  Would you try it again doing something different, or have the memories blotted out that recipe forever?

  1. Woah! Sugarfree fudge! I don’t know.. I love the real stuff so much! 🙂

    Just landed on your blog today & this post made me smile, so I’m off to check out some more of it. Happy Saturday!

  2. interesting result! like you, i have been trying to cut down on sugars and be more mindful of what i eat. I haven’t tried anything like this, but monday night i tried a friend’s recipe. cookies made of strawberries, oatmeal, and two other things, but no sugar or sweet thing at all. really not good.

    • Oh no, I’ve been there where I think something sounds great on paper, but is quite a let down once made. I know the next time I do this, I will definitely break down and buy the coconut butter, but that may be a while. 🙂
