Have you noticed that nearly every recipe for raw, vegan fudge requires you to keep it in the freezer? Whether the raw fudge with cacao recipes, or the raw fudge with dates recipes (and certainly the raw fudge with coconut oil recipes), they mostly call for you to freeze the fudge.
Frustrating, isn’t it?
So, here is our recipe for gluten-free, vegan raw fudge (with raw cacao and dates!)
And you don’t have to freeze it!
Gluten-Free Raw, Vegan Fudge
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw cacao
4 to 8 medjool dates (pitted)
agave (how much will depend – see below)
Place nuts in a food processor with the S blade. Pulse until finely ground. Add in the raw cacao, and turn the processor on until the nuts and cacao are well-blended and are a fine powder.
Add in at least 4 and no more than 8 dates, depending on your taste. Process until uniform and the dates are fully incorporated into the mixture.
Now, turn the food processor on, and through the top start drizzling in agave, slowly, until the mixture comes together and forms a solid ball of dough. You want it to have the consistence of playdough.
Line a loaf pan with waxed paper or plastic wrap, and press the fudge into the bottom of the pan. Cover the top of the fudge with the waxed paper or plastic wrap, and refrigerate for an hour or more.
Remove the fudge from the pan, and cut into squares.
