Raw fudge recipe

I didn’t like chocolate as a child.  I must be making up for it now, because I am a sucker for chocolate anything.  I even add cacao powder to my green smoothie sometimes (which makes it a brown smoothie…).  This recipe for raw fudge is one of my favorites, and they are beyond easy to make as well.  And I don’t mean easy like any chef can make them, I mean easy like anyone with a food processer (or excellent knife skills) can make them.

I think my favorite part about raw “baked” products is that they do not require the careful measuring of ingredients, nor do they fail if they are left in the oven for too little or too much time.

These are delicious as soon as they are mixed (but better after some quality time spent in the fridge).

Raw Fudge

Makes 12 squares

Ingredients:

1/2 c medjool dates, pitted and chopped

3 T raw cacao powder (you can substitute raw cocoa powder if necessary)

3/4 c raw chunky organic almond butter (smooth almond butter works as well if you don’t want delicious morsels of almonds in your fudge)

1/4 t salt

1 t vanilla

Instructions:

1. Combine all ingredients and pulse until desired consistency (look for raw cookie dough-like consistency). All ingredients should be combined into a chunky mixture that sticks together.

2. Press into a glass pan, lightly covered with raw coconut oil (to allow for easy eating later).

3.  Chill for 3-4 hours and enjoy!

Variations:

Omit the cacao powder and add 1 t cinnamon for raw blondie fudge

Cut the dates in half and substitute raw berries for a chocolatey-fruity combination that is out of this world.

Add carob chips for a chocolate-y boost.
