Fall Fun Fudge
My title is really cheesy but the "fun" just fit in so well with the other "Fs" lol. Today I made raw chocolate fudge while the snow, yes SNOW started falling. It was more like rainy snow though and fortunately it stopped and the ground is clear. We often have a light covering of snow by Halloween. I hope it holds off as long as possible this year.
This is the simplest dessert recipe ever because its preparation only requires a bowl and spoon. Yeah. I was going to mix it all up in the food processor but didn't feel like pulling it out or cleaning it just for this small batch. I pressed walnuts into the top and realize that they now look more like brownies but they're a fudgey consistency. Alternatively sprinkle cacao nibs, goji berries, or coconut flakes on top. Try variations. Roll the dough into balls and roll in lucuma, cacao, or carob powder. I'm telling you, this stuff is soooo yummy - I think the lucuma really makes it. See for yourself!
Raw Chocolate Fudge
Generous 1/2 cup almond butter
3 tablespoons agave
5 drops vanilla stevia
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup cacao powder
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
Add the almond butter, agave (or other liquid sweetener), stevia, vanilla and a pinch of himalayan salt to a bowl.
Stir it all together.
Add in the powders and stir again. Sift if your powders are lumpy OR throw all the ingredients into a food processor.
Press into a small container lined with plastic wrap. Press chopped nuts into the top (optional).
Chill and slice!
Voila! 5 minute raw chocolate fudge for a cold rainy/snowy afternoon. Happy weekend everyone!
Oh, and if you haven't had enough of my passionate parfait action.... here's another one I made with the pumpkin and chocolate puddings last week...
