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.

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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

If your chocolate has solidified it’s nearly impossible to combine it with the cashew butter so you can just melt it again, for a few seconds, in the double boiler.
It’s very important to use minimal heat when mixing your chocolate, that’s because heat destroys the antioxidants found in chocolate.
Also, avoid mixing a hot chocolate paste with your cashew butter. This will ruin your cookie’s texture so the best option is to let the chocolate paste cool down at room temperature before using it.
Removing this cookie from the tray can be a bit tricky sometimes, since it’s texture can turn out a bit sticky, especially the cookie hasn’t solidified enough.
This cookie tends to melt rather quickly so it should be stored in the fridge.
If your cashew butter has added salt, make sure you don't add any more salt, unless you want to end-up with a salty fudge instead.
