Hazelnut Chocolate Fudge

A Nourishing Notion
Woah, stop the damn bus!
This fudge is a simple pleasure that must be kept on hand for when that sweet tooth pipes up; for when that cuppa just ain’t hitting right on its own; to fool your kids into thinking they’re eating a sugary treat; or for when friends pop over and you want to show off like the boss you are.
Prep Time 15 mins
Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 12 pieces

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Cup dried dates
  • 1/2 Cup Hazelnut Mylk Concentrate
  • 1 Cup filtered water
  • 1/2 Cup cacao/cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla (optional)
  • Topping: cacao nibs and/or chopped roasted nuts such as almonds.

Instructions
 

  • Chop dates in half to ensure no pits go into the food processor, and soak in a bowl of boiled water for 10 mins.
  • Place soaked dates, hazelnut concentrate, cacao powder, salt, and vanilla into a food processor or Thermomix and process until smooth and fudgy. Scrape down sides if you need.
  • Press into a loaf tin, use baking paper to line if you’re not using silicone.
  • Press cacao nibs and chopped nuts into the top and place in the freezer until set.
    Store in the freezer.
    Try to not eat it all in one day!

Notes

I used VV Mylk hazelnut concentrate which I adore because the nuts are NZ grown, and it is produced in Rotorua; plus it’s quite exquisite when paired with cacao/chocolate.
So go ahead, it’s so easy to make it’s ridiculous. Absolutely no regrets.
