This fudge was so quick and simple to make that I made it twice in five days. The last batch was for our family’s Easter Sunday get-together.
The recipe is courtesy of one green planet.
There are only 5 ingredients. And on the 2 occasions that I made it, I forgot the salt!
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup unsalted crunchy peanut butter
2 cups raw cacao
1 cup pitted dates
1 to 2 pinches of unrefined sea salt
1) Soak the dates in hot water for about 20 minutes to make them soft and sticky.
2) If the coconut oil is solid, place the jar in hot water to melt.
3) Place all the ingredients, except the peanut butter, in a high speed blender and blend until soft and well combined.
4) Add the peanut butter at the end to keep the crunch. [I didn’t add the peanut butter to the mixture in the blender. I took the mixture out of the blender and put it into a mixing bowl. I then folded the peanut butter through.]
5) Spread evenly in a tin or container. [I used a 16cm x 27cm baking tray lined with baking paper.]
6) Place in the fridge for about one hour.
If ever you get a craving for chocolate and you don’t have any on hand, whip this up – it’s that quick and easy! It’s not too sweet. Oh! And it’s healthy so you won’t feel guilty after eating it. This is raw indulgence at its best.
