Walnut Fudge

     Thank you Whole Foods for having those wonderful bins filled with those beautiful Walnuts and Dates just waiting for my scooper to scoop you up and drag you home with me!  To make the Holidays complete, a batch of Fudge must be on the agenda!  More specifically Walnut Fudge, sans white sugar, butter or marshmallows...this is actually a good for you goodie.  This large batch makes 50 decadently rich pieces, each having only 83 calories, 8g net carbs and 2g protein.  The flavor is so intense you will be completely satisfied with one pieces... ok ok, maybe two... ;)

Ingredients for 50 pieces~
1 cup pitted Dates soaked in 1 cup Water
3 cups Walnuts
3 cups Cocoa
3/4 cup Coconut Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
Dash Cinnamon

     After leaving the Whole Foods parking lot, head directly home and cover Dates in Water for 10 minutes, drain and reserve 1 cup of Date Water, set aside.  Add Walnut and Cocoa in food processor til well combined, add Dates, Dates Water, Sugar, Vanilla and Cinnamon and continue to process til Fudge like consistency.  Pat into parchment lined Jelly Roll pan and set in fridge for at least 2 hours to set.  Sprinkle with extra chopped Walnuts if desired and pat into Fudge. (not included in macros)  Enjoy  :)
