Raw Vegan Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge

Sweet tooth saturday…. that’s not even a thing… anyways.

it’s saturdayyyyy… OHHHH OHHHHHHH!  (Ludacris just made a quick cameo)

This recipe is pretty easy however to be honest some ingredients are expensive (raw cacao!) but it’s worth it. The taste is very rich – take one bite and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a palace with gold errthing.

It’s definitely a once in a while type of thing! 

I was afraid to buy too much raw cacao and ended up only buying 1 cup – so I sub’d the other cup with just regular cacoa.

Don’t forget to pit the dates! To be honest, I didn’t even know the ones I purchased had pits – I found out when the fudge hardened and I had small lumps. It’s really not a huge deal though. Learn from my mistakes! 😎

Raw Chocolate + Peanut Butter Fudge

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup unsalted crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 cups raw cacao
  • 1 cup dates (pitted)
  • 1 to 2 pinches of unrefined sea salt


Instructions

  1. PIT! and then soak your dates in hot water for about 20 minutes. Make them soft and sticky. (I kept mine in for a lot longer because I forgot about them…)
  2. If you coconut oil is solid, put it in a jar and place the jar in hot water to melt your oil.
  3. Place all your ingredients, except the peanut butter, in your high speed blender and blend until soft and well combined. I recall having to mix it more at the end because my blender wasn’t very impressed. Probably because I hadn’t pitted the dates – the positive thing is that I learned something new about dates.
  4. Add the peanut butter at the end to keep the crunch.
  5. Spread evenly in a tin or container.
  6. The original recipe says to refridgerate for an hour – I’d recommend either fridging it for at least an hour, having a taste, then freezing it. It gets somewhat ….runny…. very quickly – and can be a bit….messy…
