Nutella Fudgy Squares



Nutella Fudgy Squares

Today I bring you a recipe that is fast, easy and delicious: Nutella Fudgy Squares. It requires only a few ingredients and minutes of microwave and stirring time.
It’s incredibly simple to make and truly delicious. You will love it! It’s great for gifts, dessert platters, or anytime you want a piece of deliciousness.
These Nutella Fudgy Squares are like regular fudge- super rich, uber decadent - but secretly healthy and guilt-free!  Yup, that means no butter, no white sugar and no sweetened condensed milk…  just pure, fudgy nutty chocolatey goodness.
The big secret here is that you will be using homemade condensed milk, free of the LOADS of sugar in store bought stuff. 
The facts are… manufacturers take out about 60% of the water from the milk to “condense” it down. After they “condense” the milk, they add about 40% sugar to fill the void from the water.
I’m sure you’re asking yourself why the manufacturers do this. Well, the added sugar means the shelf life is longer, plus transporting the milk is easier due to not having to store it in cooler temperatures.
Its always about the convenience to them, rather than people’s health.
But when you take the time and effort to make your own condensed milk, especially if its from coconut cream to make this delightful fudgy bite, you get all the real, natural flavors - no artificial food flavorings here!  Each little cube is like a piece of heaven.
Each square is super soft, yet holds its shape long enough for you to pop them in your mouth… where they then melt in your mouth.
The recipe for the sugar free, homemade condensed milk is below in notes. It really very easy to do and you can keep some in your fridge so its ready to add a dollop on EVERYTHING for a super healthy treat.
It will be something you can enjoy regularly as part of a healthy eating plan. Its high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), a form of beneficial fat that can increase energy levels and enhance brain function and many other health benefits.
MCTs also help people lose weight by making them feel fuller longer and encouraging fat burning, they also have anti microbial and anti-inflammatory properties that can boost the immune system and promote healthy skin.
If you're looking for a quick and easy dessert to make at home, you will love these creamy Nutella Fudgy Squares - they are a mix between a brownie and a chocolate bar without the cakey part.
Fully customizable too – you can add your own extras like nuts, dried fruit, seeds or other flavours to the base recipe.
