I am obsessed with fudge; homemade, super sweet & other than healthy FUDGE! My biggest weakness is homemade fudge no matter where I see it wether it be school bake sale or gas station. I’ve been playing around with a raw fudge recipe for sometime. I’ve always found nut butters & coconut oil to contribute to a fairly nice fudge, chewy and melty. Something in the texture though often left me still missing the texture of traditional fudge.
Last week I had a bit of a fudge revelation, I’ll admit after succumbing to actual fudge at a library fundraiser. In this recipe I’ve combined Cacao Paste, Coconut Creme and Pecan Butter. This particular combination gives the most authentic fudge texture I’ve had yet. I have a few more ideas that I’m going to play around in my next fudge experiment but this one is sure to please!
Cacao Pecan Fudge
1 container Vanilla Coconut Creme, melted (really any of the Coconut Cremes will work)
1 cup Cacao Paste, melted
1/2 cup raw honey or other liquid sweetener
2 tbs. Cacao Powder
1 tbs. Vanilla Powder
1/4 cup Pecan Butter
pinch of mineral-rich salt
Pecan Pieces for garnish
Place everything except pecan pieces in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Spread in a pan and garnish with pecan pieces. Chill until firm and devour.
