Dairy Free Fudge

Speaking of fudge... we were speaking of fudge, right? Well, I was thinking about it anyway...

:)

I ran across this fudge when I was searching for a recipe to get more coconut oil in my boys because of their eczema AND wanting to get some local honey in them for their environmental allergies.

I found a perfect recipe for that!!! Original from amanda123ns at allrecipes.com.



HALF recipe:

1/2 c coconut oil (I used extra virgin)
1/2 c cocoa
1/4 c honey (local to you if possible)

Gently melt the coconut oil to liquid if it's in the solid state. Combine liquid coconut oil and cocoa until smooth. Mix in honey. Refrigerate for at least one hour (or until preferred hardness) in a lightly greased container. (I greased a stainless steel bowl with coconut oil.)

Add some almonds and you'll have a Mounds Bar! I'm also wondering if a little Sunbutter might be good mixed in? Maybe next time!

Forgot to take a picture as it was eaten too quickly. :)

Call for Allergy Cooks

UPDATE (12/08/2009): Thank you all who have volunteered to share your recipes!! I can't wait to see your additions to Must Follow Recipes! At this time, I am going to close "the call for cooks" as I have several interested. Thank you so much!!!

******************

I'd like to see the number of recipes grow on this site. It seems there is a real need for more allergy recipes, as I continue to get emails for suggestions; however, one person can only do so much and I would love to see some more variety on this site.

If you are interested, please email me at missbecky75 [at] gmail [dot] com or leave me a comment with information on how to reach you. Please list the food allergens that you don't include in your recipes and how long you have been dealing with food allergies. I would also be interested in including a vegan author.

Please know that this is not a paying gig. :)

I would like to have 2 - 3 additional authors to begin 2010. Here are the requirements:

  • Recipes must be free of milk, eggs, and peanuts (at least)
  • Recipes must have been tried by your family and liked
  • If you borrow a recipe from somewhere, you must give credit to the original author
  • You must post a new, tried and true recipe at least once a quarter
  • You are willing to share your recipes for free
That's it! (Well, that's all I can think of right now, anyway.)

I'm not expecting this to blossom into anything huge, I'd just like to see more offered here at Must Follow Recipes. So if you are interested in including your recipes, please email me ASAP.

Looking forward to swapping and sharing recipes!!
