The coconut oil is what makes the batter set and it gives it that fudge-y consistency. It also gives the fudge a lovely coconut flavour. For a real treat, top the fudge with some crunchy peanut butter and freeze dried strawberries.
What are you up to this weekend? After a busy week I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend involving lots of books, yoga and cooking. And chocolate fudge of course!
1 cup fresh dates (pitted)
1/4 cup raw cacao
1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
Small pinch of salt
1 tsp water
1. Blend together all the ingredients in a food processor or with a hand held blender until the batter is completely smooth.
2. Press the batter into a small baking tin covered with parchment paper. What I think works really nice though is halt of a bread tin. Put in the freezer to set.
3. Slice the fudge in small pieces and enjoy!
4.Keep in the freezer.
