Fudge has always been one of those "hit or miss" recipes for me. I've made it many times and tried different recipes, but I find that if I don't boil it for exactly the right amount of time, the outdoor ambient temperature isn't quite right or the stars aren't aligned on that particular day then the stuff just doesn't set! Alright alright, I may have made those last two things up, my point is that making fudge the traditional way can be problematic. So, I decided to put together a foolproof "cheat" recipe... straightforward, no sugar thermometer required and you'll have a batch of tasty fudge ready in a snap.
If you are looking for a little sweetness after dinner, these grain-free tropical chocolate rum balls are just what you need to satisfy the craving. The rum balls are made with cocoa, nuts, pineapple and rum. The sweetness comes from dates, so no need to add a sweetener. This recipe is acceptable on a gluten-free, paleo and raw diet.
