Chocolate Fudge

Well isn't this a nice Saturday treat? This is miles away from a "real" chocolate fudge, but it has the advantage of simplicity. No need for a stove or oven. The only equipment needed is a food processor or even a good hand held blender. And what's more, no need for butter, cream or sugar either. Just some real, natural and whole ingredients like dates, coconut oil and raw cacao powder.

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!

Chocolate Fudge

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.
