Raw Chocolate Fudge

For the Base

2 Cups Coconut Thread

15 Medjool Dates, soaked and pitted

1 Cup Raw Cacao

1 Cup Cashews

1 Cup Walnuts

Pinch of Sea Salt

For the Topping

5 Medjool Dates, soaked and pitted

¼ Cup Coconut Oil

½ Cup Raw Cacao

1/4 Cup Raw Honey (optional)

Pinch of Sea Salt


Soak the dates in warm water for an hour. Remove the dates from the water, but reserve ¼ Cup of the soaking liquid.

Blend the cashews, walnuts and coconut thread in a food processor until finely ground. Add in the dates, then the raw cacao and a pinch of salt. While the food processor is running, slowly add in the reserved liquid until you have a thick paste that is well combined.

Press the mix into a loaf tin that has been lined with grease proof paper, and refrigerate while you make the topping.

Blend the coconut oil, honey and dates in the food processor until well combined. Add in the raw cacao and a pinch of sea salt, then spread evenly across the base and return to the fridge for an hour to set.

Cut into portions and serve
