Raw Chocolate Fudge

Sometimes when hanging with friends you’ll end up making something together in one of your kitchens and a few years ago, this Raw Chocolate Fudge was exactly the thing we made from a friend of a friend.

Fast forward to 2020 and this one has been made countless times in my own kitchen and yet never shared here. Despite all the searching there hasn’t been found a recipe exactly like this one (if you know of one, let me know and I’ll link accordingly).

When all this started, all this endless confusion and confinement it never seemed like having a snack in the fridge like this would be a good idea considering how readily available it is, yet it’s the kind of treat you have one or two of and walk away from.

When I’m emotionally eating (honestly speaking, that is my go-to when things feel a bit obscure), a couple pieces of this is even better put into a small bowl and topped with a tablespoon or two of peanut butter, diving in with a spoon. It hits the spot, but is still pretty good for you.

So here this recipe is, you only need fifteen minutes and four ingredients and then some patience to let this set. Then dive in, or share with friends who are trying to be healthier with their choices, but still crave chocolate.
