Homemade fudge recipes can be the perfect dessert for that special romantic date that you are planning.
On this page you will find an easy fudge recipe as well as a more intense rawish fudge recipe.
Chocolate fudge recipes that are made with raw chocolate and other raw ingredients can be considered a raw dessert.
And raw fudge will not only taste great, but come with more health benefits such as antioxidants.
Process the dates and ½ cup of the hazelnuts in a food processor or high speed blender for about 2 minutes.
Add the reserved 1/2 cup of hazelnuts, grated cacao butter, cacao powder, vanilla, sea salt, and maple syrup to the food processor and process for 1 minute.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and roll the mixture into small balls, using about 2 teaspoons of the mixture per ball.
Set each ball on the parchment paper and refrigerate until you melt the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate slowly in a double boiler. Cut a small hole in one end of a plastic bag and fill the bag with the melted chocolate. Drizzle melted chocolate over the balls and serve.
Pre-Made Crust for Fudge:
Blend ingredients in food processor or high speed blender with appropriate blade to make a course paste like crust.
Press mixture into an 8 inch glass pan and place in your freezer to harden crust.
Blend these ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender with appropriate blade for a few minutes or until a very smooth consistency is reached.
More Fudge Ingredients:
Add these ingredients to blended mixture and incorporate until well blended.
Final Fudge Ingredient:
Blend coconut oil into mixture and then pour mixture on top of your pre-made crust and put into freezer for a couple of hours to harden.
And store leftovers in your refrigerator for up to a week.
I have made this homemade fudge recipe a couple of times and it is so....good! It's pretty quick as long as you have pre-soaked and dehydrated your macadamia nuts before starting this rawish dessert.
This is more or less a vegan fudge as well and if you want to make it really vegan you could replace the honey (which is technically not vegan) with raw coconut nectar.
