Hazel’s Raw Fudge
(Makes 20 pieces)
2/3 Cup of Nut butter
¼ cup of raw cacao powder
¼ cup of Lucy Bee’s coconut oil
1 tbsp of Organic Burst Maca
2 tsp of vanilla essence
1/3 cup of agave nectar/organic honey
Extras: raw cacao nibs, roasted hazelnuts and goji berries
- Bring a saucepan of shallow water to boil and then turn the heat down to simmering. Add the ingredients, apart from the ‘extras’, to a mixing bowl and place over the saucepan of hot water.
- Stir constantly for approximately 1-2 minutes until the mixture is completely combined. Be careful not to overheat the mixture as this will disturb the texture of the fudge.
- Line a baking tray (I used a bread tin!) with cling film and pour the mixture into the tray.
- 4. Cover with cling film and pat down the mixture so the top layer is even.
- Chill in the fridge for approximately 1hr, or until the mixture is solid, and remove from the cling film. Chop into bite sized pieces and store in a jar in the fridge.
