    Vanilla Fudge – Covered Cherries – White Chocolate
    on youtube -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA3aX3CFhJg

    Over a double boiler, melt:
    2 C. cacao butter
    3/4 c. raw honey
    2 c. cashew or macadamia nut butter
    Mix by hand. Or put in a personal blender with
    4 T. mesquite or lucuma powder
    2 pinches vanilla powder or extract.
    Add:
    4 T. goji berries, if desired
    4 pinches orange peel
    6 T. cacao nibs.
    Take a fudge brownie pan, or ice cube trays and oil with olive oil. Olive oil makes the best coating to be able to get the fudge out without sticking. Put a cherry in each ice cube section, or stir them into the batter.
    Freeze for 10 or more minutes! Delicious!
