If you like cashew butter you’ll love this delicious raw fudge. It’s creamy and soft, comes loaded with healthy fats and works great as a meal replacement or a healthy dessert.
This fudge was inspired by endless nights of eating cashew butter and raisins combined, with a tbsp. Am I the only one that thinks cashew butter and raisins are made to be together?
Back to the recipe, I love dark chocolate so much that I keep it in the house all the time. The same is true for all the other relatives of chocolate: raw cacao, cacao mass and cacao butter. And since I also have coconut oil at my disposal all the time, I’ve said to myself: Why not combine all the healthy ingredients into a delicious raw cookie and see what happens?
The result? Well … I think the result speaks for itself.
Delicious. Creamy. Soft. Fudge. Cashew and Chocolate. Raisins.

Delicious Cashew Butter Fudge
- 250 g cashew nut butter (no salt)
- 30 g extra virgin coconut oil
- 30 g dark chocolate (85%)
- 30 g cacao butter
- 30 g raisins
- pinch of Himalayan salt
- In a double boiler, add coconut oil, chocolate, cacao butter and salt.
- Combine all the ingredients into a chocolate paste. Make sure to keep the temperature in the double boiler low, avoiding to overheat the chocolate paste.
- Once everything has combined into a chocolate paste, remove from the double boiler and set aside until we take care of the other half of the cookie.
- In a separate bowl, mix cashew butter with raisins until they combine together.
- Mix the cashew butter with the chocolate cream (which has to be at room temperature and in liquid form).
- Once combined, pour in a glass or ceramic dish and let it solidify in the fridge for a few hours.
- Once your chocolate is solid, remove from the fridge and use a big knife to cut into square like portions. Remove them one by one from the tray, paying special attention not to ruin their shape, as they tend to be a little sticky.
- Transfer on a big plate and let them sit again in the fridge, until you decide to consume them. These can be safely stored in the fridge for 4-5 days, even one week.
