Fudge Chocolates with nuts & dried fruits

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Servings 12-15 chocolates
This is a great recipe for bite-sized, melt-in-your-mouth chocolates with hazelnut butter (or almond, walnut, or peanut), raw cacao nibs, nuts, and tangy dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, or mangoes). Add an extra bit of crunch by dusting them with chia seeds! No chocolate mold? No problem! Use empty ice cube trays instead, they're the perfect size and are just as easy to use. To make this recipe even more chocolaty, add 2 cups of 70% dark chocolate chips to the bain marie mix, along with 1/4 cup of hazelnut butter, adding your favorite nuts and dried fruits once the mixture is smooth.

How It's Made

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup of virgin coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup of nut butter (hazelnut, almond, walnut or peanut)
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1-2 ice cube trays
  • 2 tablespoons of raw cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup of a mix of nuts and seeds of your choice (almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.)
  • A few pieces of dried fruit (cranberries, mangoes, raisins, figs)
  • 1 tablespoon of ProactivChia

Directions

  1. Pour coconut oil, nut butter(s), and maple syrup in a bowl. Place over a pot of boiling water to make a bain marie and melt until texture is smooth and creamy.

  5. Add some of the chopped nuts and fruits, as well as raw cacao nibs, to each chocolate. Top with Proactivchia.

Oh wow! Written By: Jennifer Marie
Oh wow...my adjustments are - used almond butter, pinch of cayenne, tsp of cinnamon, fee drops of vanilla extract, pomegranate cocoa mix by My Inspiration at Home, dark chocolate nibs from Prana's mix. After spooning the miz into ice cube trays, I sprinkled a generous portion of Prana's Kilimanjaro and Annapurna mixes on top minus the nuts. Topped with Chia and a light Himalayan salting.

Oh wow!

PRANA edit: That sounds AMAZING!
