Homemade Fudge Recipes
and Raw Fudge

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.

Easy Homemade Fudge Recipe


  • 1 cup Organic Blanched Hazelnuts (divided into 2 portions)
  • 4 lg. Organic Medjool Dates (pitted)
  • 1/4 cup Organic Cacao Butter (grated)
  • 2 tbsp. Organic Raw Cacao Powder
  • 2 tsp. Organic Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup Organic Dark Chocolate (chopped into small pieces)
  • 1 tbsp. Organic Maple Syrup

Store your homemade fudge in an airtight container in your refrigerator or at room temperature.


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.

Rawish Homemade Fudge Recipe

Pre-Made Crust for Fudge:

  • 1 1/2 cups of Raw Mac Nuts (previously soaked & dehydrated)
  • 1/2 cup of Raw Coconut Butter
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

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.

Fudge Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of Soaked Roasted Cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups of Soaked Raw Macadamia Nuts
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cups of Raw Hawaiian Honey
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup of Filtered or Spring Water


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:

  • 1 Tablespoon of Maca Powder (Optional)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Raw Fermented Cacao Powder
  • Big pinch of Sea Salt

More Instructions:

Add these ingredients to blended mixture and incorporate until well blended.

Final Fudge Ingredient:

  • 3/4 cup of Raw Virgin Coconut Oil

Final Instructions:

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.
