So I did end up making fudge.
I had found a recipe, and was meaning to follow it. But as I was looking at it, I thought that the sugar would be unnecessary. Chocolate chips are pretty sweet already! And plus, I like dark chocolate.
Then, when I was stirring the chocolaty mixture, I decided to add some cocoa powder, to make it extra dark. And it made it extra good!
I am really pleased with how this fudge turned out: fudgy (a good thing in fudge), deep, dark, and evil (my favorite term for great desserts, especially if they include dark chocolate). I hope you enjoy!
1 (13.6 oz.) can coconut milk (I used full fat)
3 c. dark chocolate chips (mine were 60%)
1-2 Tbsp. cocoa powder, or more to taste (optional)
2 tsp. vanilla
Combine the coconut milk and chocolate chips in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until melted. Add the cocoa powder, and stir until mixed in. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into a 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper, and refrigerate overnight, or until hardened.
Remove from the fridge, and, using the parchment paper, take the fudge out of the pan. Remove the parchment paper and slice the fudge into small-ish pieces. Store in the refrigerator.
The fudge it a little on the soft side, but everyone loved it. Meiling kept declaring that it was good, even though she hasn’t had any yet.
