I’d love to try but the calories and fat per piece is “over my budget”. Any way to reduce these?

Oh my goodness, thank you for bringing that to my attention! I recently switched recipe cards and that information was completely inaccurate! I've just updated it. As for reducing calories and fat in this recipe it is tricky with the use of coconut oil and cocoa butter as the base, which are rich in fats. The good alternatives for those ingredients (oils) are comparable in terms of calories and fat. While still somewhat calorie rich too, I often use almond butter in fudge recipes very similar to this which adds a nice dose of protein to help balance all else. I hope this helps at least a little bit! And sorry again for the crazy nutritional information! 🙂

Oh I really want to try this! Although reading the recipe it says nothing about the two different colored layers. Did I miss something?
Kristen Wood says
Thank you! The layers happen naturally as the ingredients settle and harden! 🙂
