Mint Chocolate Superfood Fudge!~

Mint chocolate fudge as a health food? Oh yes! This fudge is ridiculously decadent AND ridiculously good for you. Why? Because it features our new green hemp butter. Our new butter is stone-ground from our green hemp seed meal which is higher in fiber and chlorophyll than traditional hemp seeds and contains all of the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids! Yes, that’s right- this fudge is high in fiber, chlorophyll, essential fatty acids and essential amino acids. It tastes like a decadent dessert but is an amazing breakfast or mid-day snack as well…yes, you can eat fudge for breakfast without the sugar crash or weight gain πŸ™‚ And what better way to introduce the benefits of Superfoods to those you love (if you haven’t already)? Just share this fudge with everyone you know and watch the praises to roll in. Now on to the recipe for this incredibly delicious raw Superfood fudge (drumroll please)….


Mint Chocolate Superfood Fudge~

Note: There are 2 parts to this recipe so be sure to pay attention to the amounts for each step (vs. adding the entire amount in the first step)

 

Base:

1 cΒ  green hemp seed butter

1/4 c melted cacao butter*

1/4 c melted coconut oil*

6 T raw honey

1 tsp vanilla powder

3/4 tsp pink salt

For Chocolate Layer, add:

1 T green hemp butter

1 T coconut oil

1-2 T raw honey

1/2 c + 2 T cacao powder, sifted to remove lumps

pinch or two additional pink salt

For Mint Layer, add:

1/4Β  c lucuma powder

6 drops food grade peppermint oil

cacao nibs for garnishing

*If you don’t have a dehydrator, melt coconut oil and cacao butter in a double boiler orΒ  a bowl fitted over a smaller pan of simmering water.

Feel free to use molds or a loaf pan for this recipe. To prepare the loaf pan, line with wax or parchment paper (to help the paper stick, grease the pan with coconut oil and stick the paper to the oil). It’s best to start with room temperature green hemp butter if possible (otherwise you will just need to watch the mixture to make sure it doesn’t firm up too quickly). To make the base, stir 1 c green hemp butter, 1/4 c cacao butter, 1/4 c coconut oil, 1 tsp vanilla powder, 3/4 tsp salt and 6 T raw honey together in a large bowl until smooth. Once all lumps are removed and mixture is well incorporated, remove 1 c of the base to another bowl to make the chocolate layer. To the 1 c of base, add all chocolate layer ingredients and stir well to remove all lumps. Once the chocolate layer is well mixed, scoop into prepared pan (or molds) and smooth layer with spatula or back of spoon. For the mint layer, add the lucuma powder and peppermint oil to the remaining base and stir well. Pour over chocolate layer and smooth as well. Sprinkle top with cacao nibs and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour. Once chilled, cut into small squares and serve with a smile πŸ™‚
Variations:
-Mix cacao nibs into the base for some added crunch and dust top with cacao powder or lucuma powder
-Omit the chocolate layer and stir cacao nibs into the mint base for mint chocolate chip fudge (just add twice the amount of lucuma and mint oil into the base)

    • Yes, no problem at all- you could use agave or coconut nectar instead of the honey. You may need to add a few drops of stevia if you use coconut nectar as it’s not quite as sweet as honey but either would taste great! Enjoy πŸ™‚

  1. Wowzers, this is super decadent and delicious! Gotta get me some green hemp butta! πŸ™‚
