makes about 10 squares
3/4 cup (165g) dates
3/4 cup (185ml) boiled water
1/2 cup (90g) extra virgin coconut oil – I used Coconut Merchant
3/4 cup + 1tbsp (90g) cocoa powder
1/2 tsp truvia stevia sweetener
salt and vanilla, to taste
1. Firstly, roughly chop your dates into small pieces. Then, add them into a food processor with the still hot, boiled water and coconut oil/butter. Blend until as smooth as you can get it.
2. Then, add in your cocoa powder, stevia, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth. When this is done, scoop the mixture into a small cake tin with a removable base. Using a spoon, spread the top of the mixture smooth. Move the fudge into the fridge and leave to set for at least 4 hours – if you can wait, it’s best left overnight. When the fudge has set, remove from the fridge, slice and serve.
