    This looks amazing! Will this work if I don’t have an ice cream machine?

      If you don’t use the ice cream machine it will probably turn into ice and won’t have the creamy texture of ice cream. I recommend this ice cream maker. It is priced well and works great.

    I am lactose intolerant…is there a substitute I could use for the heavy cream?

    • adriana March 3, 2013 at 2:42 pm Reply

      Yes, replace the heavy cream with more coconut milk

    In making the fudge it seems the milk pretty much evaporated and what was left turned into a thick pudding-like consistency. This was within the first hour, I took it off the eye because it started to burn. I kept the eye on low and stirred occasionally, what could have gone wrong?

      Jennifer, what brand of coconut milk did you use and what was the total grams of fat in it? I usually use a brand called Thai Kitchen and the total fat is 14 grams per can. I am thinking the coconut milk you used contained less water and so it condensed in half the time.

    It was the fat content, sigh. Guess I will have to try again 🙂 Thanks!

    I used a can of coconut milk containing 10 grams of fat. After about an hour I questioned if I should stop as it was reaching a consistency of condensed milk like you would buy at the store. I kept going until about an hour and twenty minutes into it, and then pulled it from the heat because it looked like if I kept going it would be too thick. I reserved the 1/4 cup (which looks great in my opinion), but then when I added the cocoa powder, butter and extract, it clumped up terribly. Did I do something wrong, or is that how it is suppose to look?

      Hi Mel, every brand of coconut milk is different and may take less or more time to cook. The consistency of this fudge is thick, but if you want a softer consistency, you can cook the coconut milk less or add a little coconut oil or water to the recipe. Hope this helps.

    This looks so good. I can’t wait to try it! What cacao powder do you recommend? Also what heavy cream do you use? We are 1 week primal and I am missing some sweets!

      Hi Perla, for the heavy cream I usually go to Whole Foods and look for one that is made from pastured cows. For the cacao powder this is one of my favorite brands that I order from amazon:
