SuperRichCoconutChocFudge

I love it when I have cooking weeks where everything works! I had a few disasters not that long ago where the result was so bad that even I couldn’t eat it – very rare as I hate to waste food. But this week was truly stellar, so here is one of the recipes today and the rest will follow in the weeks to come.

I’ve noticed something. If I eat three small pieces of this recipe or any of the good fat and protein combos like my white chocolate fudge or peanut butter balls, for breakfast, I am totally not hungry again until well after 12 noon.
