vanilla bean almond butter fudge....

What a mouthful!!
In every sense of the word!
A dairy, refined sugar, animal fat free fudge, guaranteed to be choc full of 'melt in the mouth' goodness.
We've been using this as a very welcome handmade gift of late - no complaints yet!!!

Vanilla Bean, Almond Butter Fudge
* 1/2 cup Almond Butter (from health food stores, like peanut butter but made with almonds)  * 1/2 cup coconut butter (we made our own like here)  * 1/4 cup coconut sugar (from health food stores - although we have made one batch with dark brown sugar as well)  * 1/4 cup agave syrup  * 1/2 tsp vanilla powder or paste  *  extra vanilla powder or raw carob to dust

Line a brownie pan with baking paper
Using the double boiler method, gently melt all ingredients (except the dusting powder) till smooth - stirring regularly
Pour mixture into prepared pan, dust with powder and refrigerate

What we loved: despite having no dairy in this recipe, we loved the creamy texture and smooth taste
The looks on peoples faces after their first bite
The requests for the recipe after their last bite

What we didn't love as much: Just a little extra fiddling around to make the coconut butter and source the coconut sugar and almond butter
