Good for you Fudge

I came across this recipe in the "Whole Earth Cookbook" quite a few years ago and have made it a few times. This year when making it I used chocolate in the recipe instead of the carob powder they called for and we really enjoyed it a lot. The chocolate helps to make the consistency a little nicer and firms it up more than the original recipe. If you don't like the seeds you could used any type of nuts instead.

1 cup honey
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 package 60% cocoa chips
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (optional)
1/2 cup chopped dates or other dried fruit

Melt the honey, peanut butter, and chocolate chips together in a saucepan until chocolate is melted, stirring to combine. Quickly add the seeds, coconut, and fruit, stirring to mix completely. Pour into a rectangle baking dish and refrigerate to harden. Cut into squares and enjoy. Refrigerate for better keeping.
