Chocolate Fudge Cookie Dough Bars

Chocolate Fudge Cookie Dough Bars

You are three months old today and I do not know any words that could explain how magical the time has been or how magical you are.

While you were growing inside me, my husband and I fully expected that we would have a very chaotic and difficult time during your early days.

How wrong we were!

It is you who is bringing calmness when we are drowning in our own chaos.

It is you who is reminding us of the simple things when all else seems hard.

It is you who is smiling when we forget to.

Part of me cannot believe how far you have come, how much you have learnt and how much you have taught us since your birth.

Another part of me cannot believe that the world ever turned without you in it or that I existed without you in my arms.

Thank you for finding me, my precious little one, you were my missing piece.

    Amy possible substitute for coconut oil? I may be the only person on the planet who hates the taste!!

    • Wendywoo

      You could try leaving it out, maybe use a bit more peanut butter, as it’s just for the top. Bianca has a “chocolate” /dip/ bliss ball recipe ( can’t remember which!) which is just peanut butter ( or tahini), honey and cocoa, and it’s lovely. It might not set so well though, but hey, it will still be delicious as a sauce to pour on top! x

    • You can leave it out but may need to use your hands to press the chocolate layer onto the base as opposed to pouring. I hope this helps. x

  • Beautiful words as always x

    just made this one. my first from the Wholefood Simply website. Thank You 🙂 Picked an easy one and I didn’t stuff it up – and my daughter LOVES it. Better than Reese’s she said 🙂 But she wants to use the left over coconut oil for her hair – argh!!!!

    • Thank YOU!! I am glad it was enjoyed!! I really appreciate the feedback and I hope you find many more recipes that you like. Be sure to let me know.

  • Wendy Kilgour

    This one is my all time favourite I have never had choc icing so good.

    I made this last week and it was delicious!!! I used a combo of almond meal and oat flour for the base (just what I had!) and the base seemed a tad crumbly at first so I added a spoonful or two of coconut oil which made it stick together better (if anyone else has that problem!)

    anddddd I used maple syrup instead of honey because that’s all I had 🙂 and I added a bit of vanilla essence to the chocolate part! (what I usually do with my homemade chocolate).

    But seriously, this slice is so yummy and beats any store bought candy bar in my opinion. Thanks Bianca!

        I am on a roll, the honey joys I made last night were awesome too, not sure what I like the best but I am so happy to be able to make my kids some snacks that they enjoy and they are not full of rubbish or sugar. I am now searching for my next recipe in your collection to try. Thank you Bianca.
