raw chocolate fudge

This fudge is incredibly rich, smooth and decadent. A small piece is very satisfying because it’s packed full of whole food goodness.

The hardest thing about this recipe is waiting for it to set in the freezer before you get to sink your teeth into it.

  • 2 1/2 cups raw cashews (if you don’t have a high speed blender, soak your cashews for 8 hours and rinse well)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup filtered water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt

I used my Vitamix to make this fudge. You might be able to use a food processor, but may not be able to get it as smooth as a Vitamix or other high-speed blender.

Pour the mixture into a freezer-proof, covered container that is lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper (this makes it easier to take out of the container for slicing) and freeze until firm. Because I couldn’t wait, I snuck a piece after 4 hours of freezing! I would recommend slicing it into desired serving sizes at this point. I waited till it had been in the freezer overnight and it was frozen quite solid, making it difficult to slice.

This fudge should be kept in the freezer because it melts quickly.
