Raw Vegan Holiday Recipes: Raw Chocolate Fudge
by Heather Pace
This is the simplest dessert recipe ever because its preparation only requires a bowl and spoon. You can mix it all up in the food processor if you feel like pulling it out or cleaning it just for this small batch. You can press walnuts into the top so that look more like brownies, but they’re still a fudgey consistency. Alternatively sprinkle cacao nibs, goji berries, or coconut flakes on top. Try variations. Roll the dough into balls and roll in lucuma, cacao, or carob powder. This stuff is soooo yummy – see for yourself!
- Generous 1/2 cup almond butter
- 3 tablespoons agave
- 5 drops vanilla stevia
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon lucuma powder
Add the almond butter, agave (or other liquid sweetener), stevia, vanilla and a pinch of himalayan salt to a bowl. Stir it all together. Add in the powders and stir again. Sift if your powders are lumpy OR throw all the ingredients into a food processor.
Press into a small container lined with plastic wrap. Press chopped nuts into the top (optional).
You can also roll the slices in carob powder. Chill and slice!
Voila! 5 minute raw chocolate fudge for a cold rainy/snowy afternoon.
