What a terrible name. I’m as disappointed as you are. But not with the recipe. I was going for more of a bark recipes, but made it thick and into a candy that’s similar to fudge. But not exactly like fudge. I don’t know, maybe you’ll think it is. Either way, I dig it. And since Halloween was last night, I wanted some kind of chocolate. Obviously. So we made some gluten free pizzas by Against The Grain and I made these little chocolates to snack on while we watched Hocus Pocus and handed out candy. And I mean Laura handed out the candy. Halloween really isn’t my thing, nor are kids. So I stayed away from the door. But Laura is all into holidays, she decorates for every holiday. Including Halloween. There are fake spider webs everywhere right now. Do you know how annoying that sh*t is? More annoying than the sparkles that come off holiday decorations. The worst. It catches on everything, like real spider webs. But I support her because she’s real great, but I know that I will find it EVERYWHERE for at least a month. Again, the worst.

So if you’ve read my blog before, you know I’m not really into kids. They are just not my thing. Especially on Halloween. Mostly because most of the kids don’t say thank you when we stuff candy down their throat. That’s just impolite. The polite ones are awesome, but you just don’t know what you’re going to get when you open that front door. Anywho, when I was in California, I went to a trampoline gym a couple times. And every time I was about to jump backwards, a child would somehow be underneath me with frightened eyes. And as soon as I thought it would be a good time to jump, the child would try to commit suicide underneath my large feet. They are just always there at the wrong time. Sorry parents, it’s just the truth. I’m sure your children are great.

Did you know a woman handed out letters to obese children to give to their parents warning them about obesity? That’s intense. Sure to strike up some debate.

Being back in Colorado has been absolutely wonderful. Colorado is seriously the greatest place to live. It’s sunny, it’s friendly, and it’s home. I swear, the most friendly people live in Colorado. It’s weird going to other places where people don’t make eye contact or smile back at you. I don’t get that. Maybe I just saw the wrong people. Unlikely, but maybe. Either way, I missed Colorado. But sadly, I have to leave AGAIN tomorrow for 2 weeks. That’s cray cray. I’ve never been out of town for that long. But George from Civilized Caveman and I have to turn in our manuscript for The Paleo Kitchen before January 1st, so it’s crunch time. Finishing up recipes, doing an EFF ton of dishes, and writing all about paleo is what we will be doing for 2 weeks straight. I swear, after this cookbook is done, I will be trying every restaurant in Denver. I LOVE cooking, but doing the dishes for a greater part of my day just puts me in a bad mood.

Last night, I ate two peanut butter cups. Kirkland brand. I felt like ugly dog balls after. Worth it? Not sure. Probably not since it wasn’t even the real kind. Damnit Juli, no self control.

    Whattup home skillet! Aright I seem to burn my chocolate in the microwave. I dont have a fancy double broiler. Help me! Lol. I check on the chocolate and try not to let it go too long but either its not melted or bam its burning and sticking to the glass dish. Merrrrrr lol. :{

    1. juli says:

      let the chocolate chips just get a little soft then stir them until they are well combined and smooth, then they won’t burn!

    My family loved these! I had to put them in the freezer to keep us from eating it all! Thanks for providing such wonderful tasting recipes and comic relief for us paleo eaters that aren’t really strickt, it makes life a lot more enjoyable!

    I’m totally obsessed with sunflower seed butter. It’s the greatest thing ever. Is it really Paleo? I looked at the label and it says organic cane juice is in it. It’s in every brand I looked at. I’m assuming that’s okay, but I can’t find much literature online about it. I’m not 100% strict Paleo, I’m mostly wondering for curiosities sake.

    Just made these and had them today with the fam…insanely delicious. Looks like you could probably sub some kind of fruit purée and the sunbutter with any nut butter? Going to try. Girl you have a gift thanks for sharing!

    Oh my goodness YUMMY! I wish I wasn’t retarded, but I used coconut *oil* instead of coconut milk…so when I “spread” the pumpkin mix on top, the liquid-y chocolate totally infiltrated and coalesced on top, so I didn’t get pretty designs until I froze and cut them. They taste amazing though, and I have no shame, so I’m bringing them to a birthday party today even if they don’t look like your picture. I will obviously be making them again and again, and I’ll even use coconut MILK next time so that mine are pretty. Thank you for knowing that pumpkin and chocolate together are the *best*–you are wonderful Juli!

    Made these last night! OH MY G I could not stop licking the bowl- sooo good! Thank god I can freeze them and have them as a quick dessert when the craving hits! One question- how would you suggest storing these in the freezer? I was thinking of cutting them and individually wrapping in maybe, wax paper? Thanks!!

    PS thanks for your blog and cookbooks. They have really inspired me and helped me realize I don’t always have to be so strict and perfectly paleo.

    That seems to be the ultimate goal of the awful film, and only certain movies ever make it to that level.
