You know the best bit about making a cake….. Licking the frosting bowl. It’s like the cake is really just a vehicle for an appropriate way to eat frosting. There is something so friggen delicious about that buttery, sugary, creamy business. The cr@p out of a packet ALWAYS tastes the best too! Like that Betty Crocker pre-made frosting…. Must be all that delicious hydrogenated cottonseed & soybean oil (translation- trans-fat cocktail) and corn syrup! Well, no more my friends because I care about your guts & mine & ain’t nobody got time for eating that highly processed chemical $hitstorm. I present to you Frosting Fudge….. It’s basically the way I have made eating straight cake frosting appropriate…. Call it fudge & voila. No problems.
1 cup nut butter (I used roasted almond)
2 tbs raw cacao
2 tbs butter or ghee (you can sub for coconut oil)
1-2 tbs honey (you can use maple syrup, rice malt or coconut nectar)
That’s it. Seriously. You blend it up. You press it into a baking paper lined tray. You pop it in the fridge to set. Now you can have your frosting & eat it too. Who needs the cake.
