Ingredients

  • 1 cup melted raw cacao paste *see note
  • 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Cashew Milk
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 15 Medjool dates
  • 1-3 teaspoons Siracha depending on desired spice level *see note

Instructions

  • Melt cacao paste by using 30 second increments in the microwave or melting it in a double boiler. Use 1 cup of the melted version and add to a high speed blender or food processor.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender or processor. Blend until smooth. It should be the consistency of peanut butter, thick and sticky.
  • Line a square baking pan with parchment paper and scoop fudge into it. Smooth out with a spatula and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to allow it to harden. Best results are seen over night.
  • Once it has firmed up, remove the parchment with the fudge from the pan, it should lift out easily. Cut into small squares and serve. The fudge may soften a bit out of the refrigerator but should stay firm for some time.

Notes

  • If you don’t have cacao paste, you can also use an unsweetened baking bar. Break it up into small pieces to measure.
  • You can also use a very dark chocolate bar but know that it will sweeten the fudge a bit so you will need to reduce the amount of dates or be okay with a sweeter result.
  • To make this nut free, use a non nut based milk. Add as much Sriracha as you want heat. 1 teaspoon will make it mild, 2 medium and 3 spicy. You can also cut it out altogether.
  • Also, if you want this 100% free of refined sugar, check the ingredients on the sriracha you buy.
  • The original brand is made with a small amount of sugar, but I have seen some with cane juice in health food stores for people that absolutely can't have refined sugar. However I promise the sugar police won't hunt you down if you simply choose not to worry about it.
