Chocolate Fudge

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil (125ml)
  • 3/4 Cup of Cashew butter (210g)
  • 1/2 Cup of Maple Syrup or Honey (125ml)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cacao Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cacao Nibs (or Dark Chocolate Chips)
  • Pinch of Coarse Salt

This is the most addictive thing ever. It’s so simple to make and really hits the spot. It’s chewy, fudgey and gorgeously creamy with a delicious cacao nib crunch. The main ingredient is cashew butter, and you neeed quite a lot, but you can half the amounts and make a smaller batch if desired. One of the best parts though is that you store it in the freezer so it keeps for ages and is perfect for last minute cravings.

Add the coconut oil, cashew butter and sweetener to a saucepan on medium heat.

Whisk everything until you have a creamy smooth mixture then add in the cacao powder. Whisk well.

Line a baking tin with parchment paper. Pour the mixture in to the baking tin and spread it out evenly.

Sprinkle with a pinch of coarse salt and scatter the cacao nibs over the top.

Pop it in the freezer for about 2 hours until set. Take it out and chop it into chunks or squares. Store in the freezer, you can eat it straight from frozen.

    Would almond butter work as well? Looks yum

    • Indy Power says:

      You can use almond butter but cashew butter is much creamier and smoother so the texture is a little better with cashew. It’s still delicious with almond though so whichever you like x

    Hi Indy.
    Just wondering if you can use almond butter instead of cashew butter. Or does it just taste better with cashew?! Love your recipes!

    Hi Indy
    Can you substitute almond butter for cashew butter or would it radically change the taste??
    Love your recipes!

    The adults loved this but The kids found the nut taste a little strong, would almond butter be milder? Or could I add e.g. Vanilla essence?

    • Indy Power says:

      I don’t think almond would be any milder but adding vanilla essence would make it taste sweeter which would probably offset the nuttiness they’re tasting x

    This is a great recipe. I can get overwhelmed with coconut while trying to eat Paleo so I subbed in some cacao butter for the coconut oil and it was amazing! Thank you for the recipe x
