Warning: these are dangerously addictive
What if I said to you that you could make a healthy fudge that tastes just like Nutella. With just six ingredients no less too. You might think I was playing a very late April fool (which in turn would make me an April fool I guess) or that I was straight up lying. Well I’ll tell you something guys, I’m a terrible liar. Mr H can tell if I ever try to pretend that ‘I don’t know where the last biscuit went’ or ‘ I’ve no idea how your white socks came out the was pink’. Something to do with flaring my nostrils apparently.
This my friends is true as whatever the simile is. Is there one? I think so. But it’s true all right. These taste distinctly naughty but they’re just full of lovely ingredients, no food processor or blender needed just a hob and a big old bowl.
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup cacao powder
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 6 tbsp hazelnut butter
- 1/2 cup coconut cream
- Pinch of himalayan salt
- Optional: toasted chopped hazelnuts for decorating
Melt the coconut oil by placing it in a bowl over a saucepan half full of water on a medium heat on the hob until it melts (if you stir while melting it it will be quicker) then pour the oil into a bowl and add in the other ingredients. Stir well until you have a thick chocolatey mixture (try not to eat it all already!) then pour this into a baking tray or mould (I used an 8″ loaf mould lined with baking paper for quite thick slices but you can use a bigger tray if you want thinner ones. Sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts if you like, then pop the fudge in the freezer for about four hours to set. Cut into squares and enjoy!
Love, Mrs H xx
