The Healthiest Fudge You'll Ever Eat!

Pin It
Get your taste buds ready!  This is the healthiest fudge you'll ever eat and better yet it doesn't even taste healthy!  How much better can it get!?!?  I was so excited with the turn out of this recipe I just about gobbled the whole batch up in one sitting.  Whoops... :P I couldn't get over how good it was without all the additional added sugar of regular fudge.  Plus it's super easy to make and packed with nutrition.  If you missed my last post about sesame seeds (Rhubarb Bars), I suggest you go check it out to learn more about their health benefits.  Who would've thought those pointless little seeds on top of your bun would be good for you?

Cut this fudge into small squares to eat as you please or cut  it up into small cubes to resemble "brownie" bites in your favorite DQ Blizzard.  Pair them with my healthy cookie dough and you've got one nutritious-n-delicious treat!  Yum!
SESAME FUDGE

Ingredients:
1/4 cup Raw sesame seeds
2 tbsp Honey or agave
2 tbsp Unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp PB2 (or another tbsp or so of cocoa)

Directions:
1. Grind the seeds in a small magic bullet cup until they start to turn into a peanut butter like texture.  If you don't have a little bullet cup, you will probably have to double, triple, or even quadruple this recipe to get it to work in a food processor or blender because it is such a small amount.
2. Add the honey, cocoa, and PB2 and mash with a fork until well combined.
3. Mold into a square on a piece of aluminum foil and place in the fridge until desired firmness is reached.
4. Cut into squares to nibble on or cut into little cubes to add to frozen yogurt as little "brownie" pieces.
Makes 6 servings.

Question of the day:
What dessert would you like to see made healthy?
I love puppy chow (aka muddy buddies) and would love to make a healthy version of it someday.  I've tried a recipe I found on Pintrest one day for low calorie puppy chow, but it just wasn't the same.
