Having healthy raw bars are great to have on hand to fuel your energy levels through out the day.

This Raw Chocolate Mint Fudge is delicious, deep in favor, but not so rich that you can’t enjoy it bite after bite. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw walnuts, soaked
  • 2 cups raw pecans, soaked
  • 1 1/2 cups raw almond or cashew butter
  • 1 1/4 cups extra virgin coconut oil, melted (I used Tropical Traditions)
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder or cacao butter (the butter would help the fudge stay firm at room temp)
  • 1 cup raw coconut sugar, powdered in a high-speed blender (very important step)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh mint, minced

Instructions

  1. Place the soaked nuts in the food processor and process until they reach a chunky stage. I like to have small chunks in my fudge but if you want it to be smoother, go ahead and process the nuts to a finer consistency.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in the food processor along with the nuts. Combine and mix thoroughly to fully incorporate all ingredients.
  3. Line your pan with plastic wrap leaving a couple of inches overhanging the pan.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan, and press to even out the mixture. You decide on the size of pan you want. The smaller the pan, the thicker the fudge. The larger the pan, the thinner the fudge.
  5. Set pan in the fridge or freezer for about a half hour.
  6. Once firm cut into the desired sizes. Keep in fridge or freezer until ready to serve. It does soften up a bit at room temp making it a bit messy to eat. But I don’t mind licking my fingers.
  7. This fudge is wonderful to make in advance and keep in the freezer for those chocolate emergencies.
About Amie Sue

I am a certified raw food chef but my real training takes place daily in my home kitchen where I unleash my passion for preparing healthy dishes.  I personally believe that each person needs to discover how to feed their own body.  We don't live in a world were one diet fits all.  We are all so unique and individualized and our daily menus must cater to that if we want to live in optimal health.  I strongly believe that we need to add in fresh, whole foods into our day to day eating and in return this will automatically start to crowd out the not so ... optimal foods.  It is all a journey and that journey ought to be fun, exciting and filled with great tasting food!  Through my recipes I hope you find inspiration that will make your journey a positive and healthy one!
