I made some Fudge...'s kind of like Mom's found HERE (it's very good)....

...but mine is for Gatherers:

Remarkable Fudge

(measurements are approx, but very close)

In a medium sauce pan, melt/cook (med-low heat) stir as much as possible.
(I just used a silicone spatula)

5 oz Almond Butter
5 oz Carob Molasses*
1 T. Butter (but I guess you could use ghee)
1/2 C. organic Cocoa Powder (sifted)

 It will get nice and thick & rubbery!

Then stir in:
1/4-3/8 toasted sliced Almonds (or whatever Nuts or Fruit you are allowed)

 Remove from heat, spread out on something that you can put in the freezer to harden/cool.
I spread it on a Plastic Wrap lined cutting mat.
Pat it into a nice easy-to-cut-into-equal-sized-portions, rectangle.

When you cut it, use a big knife, and cut into 24 bites. (Because 1t. cocoa is what is allowed per day.  You could cut it into 48, and eat 2 a day, instead of just 1.)

Store in a single layer in the freezer.

~Happy eating!

*we got our jar of Carob Molasses a long time ago, at a little ethnic market "Andre Food" (that sold THE BEST Fresh Baklava, the next best would have to be ANDY's in the Greenville Mall), in Dallas.  We are wondering if it's still there on Coit and Spring Valley, or was it Campbell?  You can buy it on Amazon, in a 3 pack- would you like to buy a jar from us?
