California Medley Fudge (Grain-free, Dairy-free, Naturally Sweetened)

A month or so ago, on my way home from Vermont, I got hungry.

d0c4054ec49b11e28dc022000ae90fd2_7 I hadn’t packed my own snacks, so I had to stop at a gas station and scrounge around for something that I wanted to eat.

I usually don’t buy trail mix, but this one caught my eye.

California Medley, it read.

Pistachios, Almonds, craisins and raisins.

Sounded good to me.

While I was munching on my California Medley, I couldn’t help but think how much better it would taste surrounded by fudge.

So I created some California Medley Fudge.

I love the combination of sweet, salty and tart in this fudge.

Well, not “kind of”…definitely addicting.

Cold fudge for a hot day.
