This is a great recipe to make for yourself or guests, it's that good. It's easy to whip up and tastes amazing every time. I have also sprinkled sea salt flakes on top for a salted dark chocolate taste. This recipe is also dairy free. Check out more recipes by Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows, you won't be disappointed.
Yield: 24 small squares
1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup raw almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
1/2 cup cocoa powder (or raw cacao powder)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or agave nectar)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
pinch fine grain sea salt, to taste
3/4 cup raw walnuts, roughly chopped
With electric beaters, beat together the coconut oil and almond butter. You can also soften/melt the coconut oil and mix everything together with a spoon.
Sift in the cocoa powder and beat again until combined.
Pour in the maple syrup, vanilla, and salt and beat until smooth.
Stir in the walnuts.
Line a loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Scoop the chocolate mixture into the pan and spread out until even. I took another handful of walnuts, broke them up, and sprinkled over the top of the fudge for extra crunch and good looks.
Freeze uncovered for about 1 hour, or until solid. Slice into small squares and prepare to be seduced.[/mp_text] [/mp_span] [/mp_row]
