I have a number of food bloggers recipes bookmarked, as well as those from cookbooks. I have been making an attempt to cook them, not just drool over them and admire them.
Today's bookmarked recipe comes from Lisa's Kitchen, I play along to Lisa's No Croutons Required and My Legume Love Affair cooking challenge, by the way I am hosting MLLA this month, so please join in if you can.
I have a thing for fudge at the moment, vegetarian fudge, vegan fudge and raw fudge. I only made one change to Lisa's No Bake Cocoa and Peanut Butter recipe. I substituted the coconut butter for edible cocoa butter as I did not have any coconut butter at the time since then I have found some coconut butter and keep it for for future recipe experiments.
The Cocoa and Peanut Butter Fudge flavour somewhat reminded me a little of my raw chocolate that I made a few years ago, but unlike those these were not an acquired taste and quite enjoyable. These were much better in both flavour and consistency was a little fudgy and a little truffle like. Saying that though I actually liked them more a few days later as they did not melt between the natural heat between my fingertips.
