Paleo Crock Pot Fudge

I tried this recipe out because I was just way too curious to see if it would work. I'd had a request from a friend for a grain and dairy-free crock pot chocolate dessert recipe. I stumbled upon this one from Skinny Ms. and it looked too simple not to try.

Crock pot recipes obviously take a long time, but the prep time for this one is particularly lengthy as you need to allow the chocolate to get to the right consistency. It's key to let it cool down in both the crock pot itself but also the refrigerator until it's totally firm.

I used Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips and raw honey, and it was so delicious that I don't think I can make this one too often. Thankfully I passed it off to many other people so the chance to overindulge was limited!

Paleo Crock Pot Fudge
adapted from Skinny Ms.

2 1/2 cups Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips (or other dairy-free chocolate)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup raw honey
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Add chocolate, coconut milk, honey and salt to a slow cooker and stir to combine. Turn on low, cover and cook for 2 hours (don't remove the lid!).

After 2 hours turn off the crock pot and remove the lid. Stir to mix. Allow to sit in crock pot for about 4 hours or until the mixture has reached room temperature. Stir vigorously with a large wooden spoon for about 5-10 minutes.

Pour fudge into a greased baking dish, cover and refrigerate until firm. Cut into 10 pieces. For best results store in refrigerator.
