Me and the kids just LOVE store-bought chocolate pudding. Before going dairy free we ate the Snack Pack puddings and after going dairy free I started buying the almond milk chocolate pudding, but it’s just so expensive I hardly buy it. I’ve tried many chocolate pudding recipes over the past few months, and while they […]

I wanted to call this recipe Quick & Easy Paleo Fudge, but since we aren’t strict Paleo around here, I didn’t know if chocolate chips were allowed?? Some of you may remember that I already have a dairy free fudge recipe on my site but it takes FOREVER to make. Several times this month I’ve […]
