Crunchy Choc Fudge

by Collette White | Sept 17, 2014

Good Morning! I felt like doing a little baking yesterday so the big girls had something yummy to come home from school to for afternoon tea … I made a few little adjustments to my salted almond choc fudge recipe and it was a huge hit! My hubby who doesn’t have a sweet tooth even gave it two thumbs up! It is super sweet (I am going to try it with less honey next time) but it was great as it will mean it will last longer as one piece at a time is more than enough to satisfy a sweet craving! I hope you love it as much as we do!

Ingredients

1/2 cup coconut oil (100g)

2/3 cup honey (225g)

4 tblspns cacao powder (20g)

good pinch salt

¾ cup buckinis

¾ cup shredded coconut

½ cup craisins

Method

Line a lamington / slice tin with baking paper and set aside.

Place the coconut oil, honey, cacao and pinch of salt into a small saucepan and melt over a low heat, stirring constantly until thoroughly combined. Leave on a low heat for 10 minutes – stirring occasionally – be careful not to burn it.

TMX: 10 minutes / 37c / speed 3. Scrape down sides. Then, 5 minutes / 50c / speed 4.

Meanwhile, place the buckinis, shredded coconut and craisins into the lined lamington dish.

Pour chocolate over the ingredients in the lamington tray, combine thoroughly then push down into an even layer over the base of the tray.

Place mixture into the freezer for at least 2 hours (overnight is preferable) before cutting into squares.

Store in an airtight container in the freezer.

Notes

  • This needs to be stored in the freezer as it is fudge like and will soften quickly.
  • Buckinis are activated buckwheat. They have no taste but are nice and crunchy. You could replace this with crushed nuts, seeds (like sunflower) or more fruit.
  • Craisins are dried cranberries – these can be found in the supermarket. You could replace these with sultanas or other diced dried fruit. Once again, just making sure it is preservative free.
