TRIPLE CHOCOLATE HONEY FUDGE: World Bee Day

Today is World Bee Day, and unless you're living under a bucket, you know we need to work together to save the bees. The purpose of this international day is to acknowledge the role of bees and other pollinators for the ecosystem.


I've posted many recipes which feature chocolate and honey, but this Triple Chocolate Honey Fudge is the Bees Knees and perfect to celebrate World Bee Day! The observance of May 20 at World Bee Day draws attention to the essential role bees play in facilitating and improving food production, thus contributing to food security and nutrition.

When looking for recipes, it's fun to search out food collectives, associations, and brand sites. This recipe for Triple Chocolate Honey Fudge is slightly adapted from the Dupage Beekeepers Association from the cookbook Home is Where Your Honey Is.
