raw cacao fudge

I found this recipe today in one of the many newsletters on health and nutrition I receive in my inbox every day.

This recipes makes about 12 – 14 individual chocolates. Ingredients  2 Tablespoons of raw cacao powder 2 Tablespoons Tahini (or any […] Continue reading →

Here is a link to an article by Dr Mercola that sheds light on this question and also explains […] Continue reading →
