Snack time! Super Fridge Fudge

Super Fridge Fudge

This is one of my kids' favorite snacks.  It's easy to make and easy to keep on hand, which is always a plus for busy days! It's also a very adaptable and forgiving recipe, which is great because you can use up whatever you have on hand.  I grew up with a similar recipe, although it skipped the cocoa powder and contained wheat germ and dry milk powder.

Super Fridge Fudge
adapted from The Taming of the C.A.N.D.Y. Monster

1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. cocoa powder
2 c. total, any combination of sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped nuts, rice bran, etc
1/2 c. raisins, dates, or other chopped, dried fruit(s)
1/2 - 1 c. shredded coconut

Mix honey and peanut butter until smooth.  Add in cocoa powder and stir until combined.  Add in remaining ingredients (saving out some of the coconut for rolling, if desired).  Mix thoroughly.  Roll into balls and, optionally, roll in coconut OR press into a square, greased pan.  Refrigerate.

Note:  I always roll mine in balls, so they're in easy single-serving, portable shapes.  I store mine in the freezer - they thaw enough to eat within a couple of minutes.
