Four minute freezer fudge

I’m excited to share a recipe that I threw together yesterday afternoon: four-minute freezer fudge. What was the occasion? My in-laws were in town for a brief visit. They like vegan things I’ve made for them over the years (like a non-raw egg nog cheesecake one holiday season), and generally enjoy eating at the various veg restaurants we’ve taken them to (like Fressen, last night). But I don’t think they quite get the whole raw thing. So I figured, what better way to show them than by feeding them raw desserts?

I’ve been making various versions of this freezer fudge for awhile — it’s impossibly easy, delicious, rich and chocolaty. My in-laws loved the fudge, and had no idea such a thing could be made raw until I explained how! I poured the fudge mixture into mini silicone muffin cups, and I really love that they deliver perfect, individualized chunks of fudge without the mess of cutting a whole pan into squares. Usually, I don’t even bother to measure out the ingredients, but I did today, just for you folks. Here’s the recipe.

Four Minute Freezer Fudge

Ingredients

1/2 cup almond butter

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

2 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp agave nectar

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

pinch of sea salt

chia seeds

coconut flakes

cashews

Directions

Combine almond butter, coconut oil, cacao powder, agave, walnuts and sea salt in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Spoon fudge mixture into mini silicone muffin cups. Top each cup with one cashew and sprinkle with chia seeds and coconut flakes. Place cups in freezer for 15 minutes to firm up. Peel off the muffin cups once fudge is firm, and enjoy!
