Paleo White Christmas Fudge

Paleo White Christmas Fudge

Last year I made White Christmas Fudge with all sorts of super foods, however, because last year’s recipe included puffed brown rice (or quinoa) it doesn’t tick the paleo box. So this week, I decided to make a Paleo White Christmas Fudge, which is closely based on my Superfood White Christmas but also inspired a little more by my heavenly Salted Caramel Macadamia Dream recipe too.

In this fudgy version of a Christmas Classic, you’ll find:

Protein – macadamia nuts, pistachio nuts and almonds
Natural sugars – honey, cranberries and goji berries
Antioxidants – raw cacao butter
Antiviral properties – coconut oil
Dietary fibre – shredded coconut

This delicious and easy Paleo White Christmas Fudge recipe is free of grains, refined sugar, dairy, hydrogenated oils, gluten and soy.

This recipe is safe for toddlers, however, if you do plan to share this dish with really little ones, then I would recommend chopping the roasted nuts before popping them into the mix – just to be on the safe side.
