Caramel Fudge Bites
In a world filled with artificial preservatives, coloring, and ingredients, it is not often you find a recipe this enjoyable with only three ingredients! Perhaps even more impressive is that the ingredients used are also clean and simple. Medjool dates are a wholesome dried fruit; dark chocolate is often made with cacao, milk, and sugar, only, if you choose the brand wisely. Finally, our Once Again Unsweetened and Salt-Free Tahini has just one delicious ingredient: sesame seeds.
Tahini often is used as an ingredient for homemade salad dressings; it is also a key ingredient in hummus and may be used as a healthy alternative to butter in a variety of recipes. Surprisingly, sesame seed paste, or what is better known as tahini, when combined with sweeter ingredients, yields a caramel-like flavor so wonderful that your taste buds will beg for more, and you will positively need a scrumptious second bite. Since we strive to use as many natural ingredients in our recipes as possible, our sugar here is delivered by a natural source: dates! They have just the right amount of fructose and are loaded with nutrients including fiber and essential minerals.
Ready to try it yourself? No skills required, only a blender or food processor and 10 minutes to spare. The recipe below includes a chocolate shell that is completely optional. We encourage you to try your own toppings instead! A peanut butter or Once Again Amoré shell come to mind as phenomenal choices.
