peanut caramel fudge

Maca powder is one of those health food ingredients that I used to think I didn't like, but I'm so glad I gave it a second chance.

Its earthy taste can be a bit overpowering if you use too much, but when mixed with the right ingredients it gives a delicious caramel-like flavour. 

With its high nutrient and mineral content, it gives this easy fudge recipe a healthy boost. I love Bare Blends Organic Raw Peruvian Maca powder because it’s high quality and one of the best tasting ones I've tried. 

Instead of setting the fudge in a container and cutting it up, with this recipe all you have to do is spread it out onto a plate and then break it up into chunks once set. I topped it with shredded coconut, but you could leave it plain or top it with raw cacao nibs for a bit of chocolatey crunch.
