Delicious Raw Coconut Chocolate Fudge (aka Choconut Fudge)
I know how much Erin loves her coconuts, and I mean who doesn’t? If we all
had our way we’d be living on the beach drinking fresh coconut milk all day,
or at least I would. Today’s recipe doesn’t require you to live by the beach
though, because it uses raw coconut oil / butter, which you can find at most
natural food stores.
- 1/2 cup raw coconut oil / coconut butter
- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
- Sweetener of your choice to taste
- Optional but yummy additions: dash of vanilla, dash of mint, whole or
How to make this delicious raw fudge: Place all of the ingredients in a
blender, food processor, or whisk by hand. It will look as though the
coconut and the chocolate powder will never mix, and suddenly it will all
come together as the coconut softens at room temperature.
Depending on the consistency of your raw coconut oil, the mixture might look
like a thin sauce rather than something that would ever turn into fudge.
Either way, I recommend you place the thoroughly blended mixture in a bowl
of your choosing and put it in the refrigerator.
Coconut oil becomes solid at cooler temperatures and that will bring the
whole recipe together and convert that liquidy chocolate sauce into a thick
Oh sweetness: I left the choice of sweeteners up to you because everyone has
a sweetener preference. Here are some ideas to get you started: stevia,
agave, raw honey, blended date syrup, and the list goes on. Some people like
their chocolate darker and more bitter, while others prefer a sweet
chocolate. As long as you don’t add more than 1/4 cup of liquid sweeteners,
this recipe will hold up and turn into delicious fudge in the refrigerator.
This recipe will make a fairly small portion, but because this fudge is so
rich you might not be able to finish it that quickly, anyways. When I make
it I try to double the portion and I usually store the rest in the
refrigerator or freezer for a later date. Also, when you double the recipe
it tends to blend better.
Enjoy this super easy and heart healthy raw coconut chocolate fudge.
