Fat Bomb Recipe [Dairy Free]

Have you ever made Mary Shenouda’s Phat Fudge before? If not, you MUST. The first time I ever decided to make it, I didn’t have some of the ingredients the recipe called for, so I left some out and substituted others. The result was actually amazing. After making them my way a few times, I made them Mary’s way to see which recipe I preferred. Turns out, I really really LOVED the way I originally made them.

I looked in my pantry and saw a can of chickpeas and thought, that will work! And off I went… This was clearly half thought out and […]
