These super duper healthy, yet easy to make Fudge Babies have recently been the source of much contention. You see, it all started when I did the giveaway for a Cuisinart Food Processor a couple of weeks ago. In that post, I asked readers to let me know of their favorite recipes using a Cuisinart. There were 2,204 comments on that post. Guess what? I read each and every one of them. No joke.
The comments were fascinating. First, I love hearing from you. Second, I learned so many things. One of those things was Fudge Babies. At least 5 readers mentioned Fudge Babies as their fave recipe. I then did my own version of Fudge Babies and called them Chocolate Power Bar Balls, of course mentioning that the idea was derived from your comments.
Subsequently, I received several emails and tweets. In my original post I linked back to a site that had not credited the creator of the original Fudge Baby recipe, a woman named Katie. Thanks for the corrections, everyone, and for introducing me to her website Chocolate Covered Katie.
In any event, all this talk of Fudge Babies prompted me to make my own. And I knew they were a success because when my husband walked in the door he ate one. Then another. And another. And so on. You get the idea. I had to cut him off from the Fudge Babies. I had to take a picture for you all.
The recipe below is basically Katie’s recipe for Fudge Babies, with a couple of slight adaptations on my part.
- Place dates, walnuts, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt in a food processor
- Pulse on high speed until smooth
- Remove mixture from food processor and roll into little balls
I hope you all love these Fudge Babies as much as my husband and I do!
