Greek Yogurt and Fresh Fig Parfait

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pecan Fudge

Dairy-Free Chocolate Pecan Fudge

This recipe didn’t go how I planned at all, but the results are delicious! I planned to make a layered dairy-free chocolate pecan toffee inspired by a YouTube video. The final step, where the chocolate chips are added, didn’t work. There wasn’t enough heat to […]
