It may sound impossible, but trust me, it is true, you can make a healthy refined sugar-free chocolate fudge, which will load you with lots of goodness. The recipe is also so easy, does not require any baking and takes in total 5 min!
I must admit, I am a bit too obsessed with these at the moment. Once I run out of my fudge, I almost immediately whip up a new batch. Especially as it literally takes 5 min!
I like to pour mine into heart shaped silicon forms. But you could also use an ordinary baking dish and slice it up like brownies.
What you need (makes around 12 sweets):
1 tbps coconut oil
120ml of sesame paste (tahini)
1/3 to 1/4 cup of date syrup (as the tahini, you can get it at any middle-eastern store or biostore, the amount depends on how sweet you would like it)
1 tbps of cocoa powder
pinch of sea salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of cacao nibs (optional)
1 tbsp of ground nuts of your choice (optional)
1 tbsp of goji berries (optional)
- In a small saucepan on medium heat melt the coconut oil. Add the date syrup and mix well so that you do not have some oily sweets afterwards:)
- Add the vanilla extract, salt and tahini and steer well.
- Add the cocoa powder, cacao nibs (gives the fudge a wonderful crunch and such a good portion of antioxidants). If you want you can also add some freshly grounded nuts (do not grind them too small) and some goji berries.
- Make sure not to overheat the mixture. Pour it into our baking tray (if you are using a non-silicone, make sure to line it up first with some foil, so that it is easier to extract the fudge afterwards) or into silicon forms.
- Put into freezer for at least 30-40 min. Note that the fudge will melt a room temperature so keep it in the freeze and take out shortly before serving. Not defrosting required! Even in the freezer the fudge will remain a bit soft.
