Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge

I saw this recipe on the FB this week, and thought I would give it a try.  I have a few friends who are competitive athletes, and their birthday is this weekend!  A simple food gift for a great day. 

I had these ingredients in my pantry, so it was even easier to make, no trips to the store!

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder...
2 tbsp peanut butter, plus more for the swirl

1. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper
2. Warm up the coconut oil in the microwave for 15-20 seconds to make sure it is in liquid form. Stir in the honey. Next, stir in the cocoa powder and peanut butter until well combined. Pour into the prepared loaf pan. (Coconut Oil is super super slippery!!!)
3. Drop a few spoonfuls of peanut butter on top of the fudge and, using a knife, swirl it into the fudge. Place in the freeze for 15-20 minutes. Serve cold or re-freeze to store for a later time.

This was so good.  It was tough for me to bag it up and give it away!
