- 4-5 tablespoons of organic peanut butter or your favorite nut butter
- 3/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup whole raw almonds or other nuts

Start by adding the coconut milk and vanilla extract in a small saucepan on very low heat. Break up the extra dark chocolate bar into chunks and add into the pot. Add the nut butter and the stevia, and continuously stir until it all melts together into a smooth mixture. Then add the raisins, almonds, wheat germ, and rice bran and stir until fully blended. Spoon/pour the fudge mixture onto some waxed paper in a dish and place in the fridge until it cools and solidifies. Place in a closed container or cover with foil in fridge to prevent it from drying out.
