Fudge... another holiday classic. Luscious, rich, and melt in your mouth fabulous, can you imagine receiving a plate and not being able to eat it?
Such is the case with my teenage son. Years ago lactose intolerance hit with a vengeance and a decadent taste of dairy-filled fudge was no longer an option. He rarely complains, and accepts his dairy-free life with a positive attitude, but the holidays are often difficult as treats that used to be favorites arrive on festive plates he can't touch.
Using alternative butter and almond milk combined with cocoa powder, this version brings that same luscious mouth-feel and a rich chocolate flavor that melts nicely on the tongue and has you reaching for seconds when no one is looking.
The smile spreading across his face followed by a rare hug and a simple "I love you, Mom.", had my already full heart growing three sizes in just that moment.
From all of us here at Liv Life, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with health, adventure and food that makes you swoon.
