It may seem like I’m trying to convince you to become a beekeeper. I mean, first I started talking about why you should do it. Then I gave some advice on using spare equipment to catch swarms. Now, I’m tempting you with a recipe made with honey? I mean, Chocolate Honey Coconut Fudge? It sounds kind of awesome, right? Well, the reason it sounds like I’m trying to convince you, is because I am! You’re onto me!
So, if you don’t under any circumstance want to become a beekeeper, I suppose you should NEVER EVER try this Honey Coconut Fudge.
You CAN make it with store bought honey. If you like a delicious chocolatey treat that melts in your mouth. But if you make it with your OWN honey, you can also treat your allergies. You can tell your wife, or husband, that your Chocolate Honey Coconut Fudge is medicine. Once they taste it, they won’t argue. Not if it means you’ll stop making it.
Why I’m Sharing My Chocolate Honey Coconut Fudge
Seriously, though, I am sharing this recipe because I want you to understand the innumerable benefits of keeping your own bees. Chocolate Honey Coconut Fudge is a personal favorite of Lala and I. It doesn’t hurt that it requires absolutely no cooking, is gluten free, and arguably the healthiest fudge you’ll ever encounter. I’ll be sharing a lot of different recipes and instructionals that utilize the various products of a beehive (honey being only one of many) to try and give you some incentive to get into the hobby, or great things to try if you’re already started.
Without further ado, your Chocolate Honey Coconut Fudge.
|Prep Time||5 minutes|
|Passive Time||1/2 hour|
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil Melted
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup Coconut Flakes Optional, see Step 3
- 1 pinch Salt
- Almond Flakes For garnish
- Gather up your ingredients. Honestly, this might take you longer than making the fudge.
- Mix your oil, honey, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt together. Stir well until you have broken up the cocoa powder and the mixture is smooth.
- Add your coconut flakes and mix well. If you prefer a smoother consistency, skip this ingredient. The end product is still amazing. It will be a little softer, and more prone to melting, without the same coconut taste, but it will truly melt in your mouth.
- Pour into a small pan. If you choose to use the coconut flakes, spreading it to cover the pan will take some gentle encouragement with the back of a spoon or fork.
- Sprinkle with almond flakes.
- Place in a refrigerator for an hour or freezer for thirty minutes to harden.
- Cut into pieces and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this decadent recipe as much as Lala and I. It is truly one of nature’s finest treats. If you haven’t already been convinced that beekeeping is for you, keep an eye out. I’ll do my best to show you more of the great benefits beekeepers enjoy!
