Easy Coconut Almond Mocha Fudge, grain free, paleo and low carb.
Coconut Almond Mocha Fudge is a grain free, easy to make holiday or anytime treat with low carb options. Rich and decadent chocolate mocha almond fudge with a coconut fudge layer on top. Almond Joy candy and chocolate mocha combined in a magical fudge.
I made a paleo and a low carb version. My kids ate the paleo version and I have been hoarding the low carb batch. If you are not fond of coconut, then you could definitely make this without the coconut top layer, and just have almond mocha fudge. You can also omit the coffee or decaf from the recipe as well. This was so simple to whip up on the stove top, and it sets up fast in the fridge or freezer.
If you make this, it will bring joy to your taste buds!
