Oh my goodness. Paleo cookie dough fudge. Need I say more"
I think my love for baking started with cookie dough. Even at age 5, I realized if I baked brownies, cake, or cookies that at some point I could sneak a taste of the batter. So although I wasn’t great at measurements and I made a huge mess in the kitchen, baking became a hobby.
I was never too fond of hot fresh cookies, I just really liked the part that came before it was actually baked. I remember calling up my best friend and saying “Let’s go get cookie dough, and rent movies”. I mean we needed to vent about crushes and friend drama. I think we were 12. But I’m pretty sure this lasted for a few years… Okay, who am I kidding" We still have these nights.
This recipe is fabulous because it’s gluten free, Paleo, and just straight delicious. It comes from a new cookbook called Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind by my very own friend Vanessa Barajas. The cookbook is gorgeous. It’s worth buying just to flip through the pages. I made this Paleo Cookie Dough Fudge because well… it’s cookie dough, and it’s pretty simple to make! When I have a bit more time, I’m going to tackle the Salted Caramel Ice Cream recipe.
If you like cashew butter, you are bound to love this recipe. The base is cashews, but I’d bet you could make it with other nuts as well. I think next time I’ll try half cashews and half macadamia nuts. Or something crazy, like that I also think it’s probably okay to use 1/2 maple syrup, 1/2 honey. These are just options if you are trying to work with what you have in your pantry! Enjoy!
