A Sweet Treat To Be Eaten In Moderation
The recipe was a pleasant surprise for me, which I found in the Twister Jar Recipe Book that came with my Blendtec Twister Jar. The Twister Jar is a specialty jar made for the Blendtec Blender, which makes making nut butters and flour a bit easier. As you can see it also makes making specialty recipes easier also.
Now I do have to say that this recipe will serve as a treat for me and is not a staple of my vegan diet. The recipe calls for sugar, and I do limit the amount of foods that I eat that contain additive sugar, even if it is natural sugar.
This cocoa-nut almond butter is really good. I made some this past weekend and brought it to a friend’s home to serve as a snack while we watched some boxing matches. We all enjoyed the cocoa-nut almond butter, which I call a fudge because it has that type of taste. I felt a little guilty because my friend’s wife really like the fudge and she kept going to back for more of the sweets. I am careful to not eat so much at one time because it contains additive sugar. Anyway, the fudge was a huge success.
