Raw Chocolate Fudge Recipe
Rich and decadent, this raw chocolate fudge recipe tames your cravings and satisfies your sweet tooth. Easy raw food recipes for healthy, nutritious snack foods.
This raw chocolate fudge recipe is so good, you won't miss your old, unhealthy chocolate. Whenever a craving for my favorite candy bar hits, I turn to this healthy snack food.
Like most easy raw food recipes, it has just a few ingredients that really pack in the nutrition. Not only will it curb your cravings, boost your energy, and help you lose weight, but you can kiss your guilt goodbye knowing that you're sticking to your healthy whole food diet.
I like to have raw chocolate fudge for a quick pre-workout snack or any time I need a quick energy boost (like when I'm making dinner and it's taking longer than I expected it to). Make a batch on the weekend and snack on it all week long.
Just a little bit will probably satisfy your sweet tooth, but you can have more if you want ... it's healthy!
Raw Chocolate Fudge Recipe Ingredients
- 1 cup raw coconut butter, softened
- 1 cup raw cacao powder
- 1 cup raw honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- A couple pinches of sea salt
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds, ground
- 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
Soften the raw coconut butter: Boil some water. Turn off fire. Put jar of coconut butter in boiled water, and leave it there until it's softened.
While coconut butter is softening ...
- Put raw cacao powder in a mixing bowl.
- Add raw honey, vanilla, and salt to raw cacao powder, and stir until well blended.
- Use a coffee grinder to grind the chia seeds. (If it were up to me, I'd skip this step. If you use whole, unground chia seeds, your fudge will have little crunchies in it. My kids prefer not to have the little chia crunchies, so I grind the chia seeds for them.) Stir chia seeds into the cacao/honey mixture.
- When coconut butter is softened, add to cacao/honey mixture, and stir until completely blended together. Once you remove the coconut butter from the warm water, it will start to resolidify, so work quickly now.
- Fold in chopped walnuts.
- Pour into square glass baking dish. Cover, and refrigerate for a couple hours until it sets.
- Cut into squares and enjoy! I cut it 5x5 for 25 servings.
Raw Chocolate Fudge Recipe Variations
Variation #1: The chia seeds are optional. This recipe was based on a raw chocolate pudding recipe that I took and morphed into this raw chocolate fudge recipe. When making raw chocolate pudding, the chia seeds thicken it up and make it pudding-y <-- that's a technical term :)
When I converted the pudding recipe to this fudge recipe, I just left the chia seeds in even thought they're not really necessary. They contribute amazing nutritional value and help control blood sugar. They do help hold everything together. Leave them out if you want, or add more if you want. Whatever you want ... we aim to please here. :)
Variation #2: You can easily slip some superfoods into this recipe to boost the nutritional power even more. I like to add a teaspoon of spirulina powder and a teaspoon of chlorella powder. The strong chocolate flavor hides the spirulina and chlorella so well that the kids don't even know it's in there!
Variation #3: This recipe produces a pretty firm raw chocolate fudge. For a more mushy fudge, add your favorite nut milk or coconut milk (I use hemp seed milk). Start with 1/4 cup and see how you like it. Increase by 1/4 cup each time you make it until you find the firmness you like. I've used a full cup before, and it came out the consistency of a firm paste.
Variation #4: If you prefer a more milk chocolate flavor instead of dark chocolate, add
- 1/2 cup of raw cacao butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon of lucuma powder
- 1 tablespoon of mesquite powder
Reduce coconut butter to 1/2 cup and raw cacao powder to 1/2 cup.
Mmmm ... so good, rich, and satisfying ... healthy eating at its yummiest! :)
