I’m going to get right to the point because I don’t want to stand between you and eating this fudge as soon as you can. Here’s what you need to know…this isn’t your traditional fudge recipe but it sure gives it a run for its money.
I firmly believe that a great chocolate recipe should be two things: deeply rich and incredibly easy to make because when a chocolate craving hits there’s no time to waste!
All roads to fudgy richness, however, are not paved equally. There are no processed sugars here; the sweetness comes from naturally sweet dates and pure maple syrup.
This raw cacao fudge is ridiculously simple and whips itself up in less time than you’d imagine. The results will satisfy even the most traditional diehard chocolate lovers but best of all is the short list of no-nonsense raw, wholesome ingredients (and yes I did just say wholesome and fudge in the same sentence).
Raw cacao powder is packed with anti-oxidants (more than even blueberries and red wine) and essential minerals like magnesium and iron that your body needs. Combine that with the healthy fats from nuts and coconut and you have a nutrient rich dessert that your regular fudge recipe can’t beat.
In fact I suggest you find yourself a good quality raw organic cacao powder even if you don’t make this fudge because there simply is no better excuse to get a little extra chocolate in your diet.
I’ve gilded the lily and topped the fudgy base off with an additional silky layer of raw chocolate ganache and a sprinkle of cacao nibs for even more chocolaty goodness. A bold hit of chocolate yields quickly to the soft creamy bed of chocolate underneath; it’s guaranteed to satisfy even the fiercest sweet tooth.
