Directions

  1. Place 1/2 cup cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and stir in maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Pour in melted coconut oil and stir until thoroughly combined. Continue to stir until coconut oil hardens and the mixture looks grainy and thick.
  2. Place walnuts into a dry skillet over medium heat; shake skillet until walnuts are hot and smell nutty and fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Turn off heat and let walnuts cool slightly, about 1 more minute.
  3. Stir warm walnuts into fudge; mixture will soften from the walnuts' heat. Stir fudge until smooth and glossy.
  4. Pour fudge into a silicone mold for making small ice cubes. Scrape any excess fudge back into the mixing bowl. Smooth the tops of the fudge pieces.
  5. Wrap mold in plastic wrap and freeze until fudge is firm and set, at least 30 minutes. Remove plastic wrap and pop each fudge piece out of the mold. Dust pieces lightly with 1 teaspoon cocoa powder before serving or packaging as gifts. Serve cold; freeze leftovers.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't want to use a silicone mold, pour warm fudge into a plastic wrap-lined dish, chill to harden, and slice into small squares.

I'm not sure why this doesn't have more reviews? I watched the video first and it looked so easy, so I got the rest of the recipe here. Super easy and tasty. I didn't have silicone molds so I used parchment paper in a small tray and it worked just fine! Cut them into squares. Texture is great and flavor is delicious. I did not taste the coconut oil either. Definitely recommend this recipe, you can't go wrong!

Yum yum! This was delicious and much healthier than traditional fudge. Made it exactly as written but didn't have the silicone molds, so I lined a loaf pan with parchment paper and that worked just fine. I keep the fudge block in the freezer wrapped in cling wrap and just slice off a piece when I'm ready. This definitely isn't your traditional fudge as it needs to be kept cold, but it's yummy!
