Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Fudge

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 31, 2013

Instead of working behind the camera like I usually am, earlier this week I was in front of my favourite photographer’s lens working in a beautiful kitchen with a handful of recipes from my book. We were shooting some kitchen scene and outdoor photos to sprinkle in my cookbook. Our landlord was gracious enough to lend us her beautiful kitchen for the day so I was surrounded by gorgeous white cabinets, stainless steel, and a walk-in pantry. I had to pick my jaw off the floor when I walked in. What a dream!

Our wedding photographer, Dave Biesse, happened to be visiting family in Ontario this month and by a stroke of luck he was available to do the shoot at the last minute. Reuniting with him just shy of 5 years since our wedding and engagement shoot was a real treat. Dave is so warm, creative, and fun to work with. Not to mention, that Australian accent can make anyone feel at ease! Dave and Charlotte now live in Australia year-round so we don’t get to catch up nearly enough, but they will always be dear to us.

It’s been pretty chaotic around here, but exciting too. We stayed up into the wee hours of the morning for a couple nights preparing recipes, making lists, packing props, and making last minute grocery stores trips. Some recipes had to be made the morning of the shoot, so I was up super early prepping recipes and praying to the culinary gods that the food would stay fresh! Two packed coolers, 4 containers with props/appliances, a handful of freshly ironed clothing, one packed car, and a few butterflies for good measure.

A couple friends suggested that I hire someone to do my hair and make-up so I wouldn’t have to worry about it during the shoot. It sounded like a good plan, but after getting a trial done last week I ended up looking like I was going to meet the Queen. hah. I didn’t even recognize myself in the mirror. Not ideal. I don’t normally do dark eyes or maroon lipstick and I rarely curl my entire head of hair. Eric looked at me with a bit of horror on his face when he saw the finished look. It was priceless. In the end, I opted to do my own usual hair and make-up and I felt much more comfortable. Maybe it wasn’t super glam, but I felt like myself (on a good day, I suppose) which is all that matters.

I planned on taking lots of behind the scenes shots to show you, but unfortunately I didn’t have many spare moments during the day so I only snapped a couple.

Here is a picture of our landlord’s kitchen. Hello, dream boat!

This is a tiny glimpse of the chaos that took over shortly after we arrived in the AM. The entire family room was packed with our stuff. Each time we did a new shot/angle, we had to move everything around the kitchen and then set up the new recipe. The hardest part was not being able to eat all the food though!

When all was said and done, it felt like the day after a wedding. All this build up and then in the blink of an eye, it was over. Still, it’s nice to get back to everyday life where I’m free to get chocolate stains on my clothing and kale in my teeth.

My Aunt Elizabeth made this raw chocolate fudge for our big family get together last week and it was a huge hit. Us ladies were all begging for the recipe which she adapted from the Company’s Coming Superfoods cookbook. This version below is an adaptation of both the original and Elizabeth’s version, swapping ingredients as I saw fit and cutting down the portion in half since it made so much.

Even though this doesn’t have the texture of traditional fudge (it’s more like raw chocolate and smooth as silk), no one seemed to complain! It softens at room temperature (and melts in your mouth), so serve it straight from the freezer and chill leftovers as soon as possible. If you are a raw food purist and want a completely raw fudge use raw cacao powder and agave in place of the cocoa powder and maple syrup. Either way, it’s downright seductive.

Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Fudge

My Aunt Elizabeth made this raw chocolate fudge for our big family get together last week and it disappeared incredibly fast. Us ladies were all begging for the recipe which she adapted from the Company’s Coming Superfoods cookbook. This version below is an adaptation of both the original and Elizabeth’s version, swapping ingredients as I saw fit and cutting down the portion in half since it made so much. Even though this doesn’t have the texture of traditional fudge (it’s more like raw chocolate), no one seemed to complain. It softens at room temperature (and melts in your mouth!), so serve it straight from the freezer and chill leftovers as soon as possible. If you are a raw food purist and want a completely raw fudge use raw cacao powder and agave in place of the cocoa powder and maple syrup. Either way, it’s downright seductive.

Yield
24 Small Squares
Prep time
Cook time
0 Minutes
Chill time
60

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (or raw cacao powder)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch fine grain sea salt, to taste
  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts, roughly chopped

Directions:

  1. With electric beaters, beat together the coconut oil and almond butter.
  2. Sift in the cocoa powder and beat again until combined.
  3. Pour in the maple syrup, vanilla, and salt and beat until smooth.
  4. Stir in the walnuts.
  5. Line a loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Scoop the chocolate mixture into the pan and spread out until even. I took another handful of walnuts, broke them up, and sprinkled over the top of the fudge for extra crunch and good looks.
  6. Freeze for about 1 hour, or until solid. Slice into small squares and prepare to be seduced.

Note: I added a tablespoon of raw cacao nibs into my batch, but next time I will leave them out as I thought they were too crunchy in this fudge.

Oh my goodness this is so perfect! I was looking for some recipes to share with a dessert loving client, came across this recipe and had to make it immediately. After all, I can’t share a recipe I haven’t tested myself, right? ;-) Now added to my go to list for chocolate loving clients. I always recommend your site but missed these until now! Thank you!

Angela that looks so good! I’ve actually seen baked brownie recipes that use AB with a little coconut oil, cocoa, etc. I love that you kept this raw! I used to post raw vegan chocolate fudge years ago…like 2009. Whoa time flies :) Cocoa, agave, coconut oil – that’s it! I love that you worked in AB to this!

And that is indeed a dreamboat kitchen :)

Angela, this is freaking delicious! I just sat down to relax for the evening and had to get up immediately and make this (in about 7 mins flat, so fast and easy!) in my pjs and apron. Ha! Thanks for sharing. I licked the batter clean, but now it’s taking its sweet time in the freezer.

If I write a blog post, credit you but also put the recipe on my site – is that okay?

enjoy :)

Yeah I made them as soon as I saw the post. Guess I was in the mood haha. They only were in the freezer for 20mins and I tried one and it was BEST kind.

I haven’t modified the recipe, I’ll link back to you. Thanks for replying :)

Do you think I could substitute brown rice syrup for the maple syrup or agave? I have a huge jar I’m trying to use up!! Wasn’t sure if it would change the flavors or texture too much…can’t wait to make these!!! *drool!!*

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 1, 2013 at 9:02 am

Hey Andrea, Any liquid sweetener should work, although brown rice syrup will change the flavour a lot (I don’t think it would come out as sweet?). I would probably be inclined to try a smaller batch (maybe even a single serving) to see if you like the outcome. Then you don’t have to waste a whole batch if you don’t like it!

Reply

Sharon August 4, 2013 at 5:52 pm

I just made these using 1/4 cup brown rice syrup and 1/4 cup coconut nectar syrup and they turned out wonderfully!

By the way, I am a huge fan of your blog, Angela. Every recipe I’ve tried of yours has been a hit at my house! Thank you!

Hello Angela, thank you for your lovely recipes! I´m a pretty new vegan, and while normal meals are not at all a problem (I was a vegetarian before, the adjustment is not that big), I thought I would never eat yummy snacks again! Looks like I was wrong, thanks to you;)
Now my question: what is almond butter? I`m from Germany and sometimes it`s a bit difficult to translate special foods. Is it really a kind of butter or more like pureed (spelling correct?!) almonds? What could I substitute it with? Or could I make it from scratch?
Lots of love from Germany, Antje

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 1, 2013 at 9:00 am

Hi Antje, If you click on the link in the ingredients list – I linked to a homemade recipe for almond butter (here it is just in case: http://ohsheglows.com/2009/02/26/homemade-raw-almond-butter/) . It’s basically processed almonds until they get smooth. You can substitute any kind of nut butter you prefer. So glad to hear my recipes are helping with your transition by the way! enjoy

Antje August 1, 2013 at 11:44 am

I overlooked the link (I was so excited about the recipe), thank you for answering so quickly.

Hi Antje, almond butter is “Mandelmus” in Germany (in case you didn’t find out already :-)! You can buy it in health food stores if you don’t want to make your own.

Your landlords kitchen really is beautiful! It seems like so much work to create a cookbook but I’m sure the end product will be well worth it. I’m also glad to hear you went for the natural look, I think that probably suits you more.

What a perfect recipe! I love how easy it is to make. And the pictures are incredible too! Did you have help with the action shots or did you use a remote?

It should be really thin when it’s first made, the coconut oil should freeze solid though.

WOW. That looks DIVINE.

Quick question: that white background you use in your photos recently, what is it? I’ve been looking for something similar (i.e. white, smooth, slightly reflective, kind of like a mirror) for my own pictures but can’t figure out what kind of material I should buy, or how large the background should be.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 1, 2013 at 8:56 am

Hey Clem,
It’s a ratty old white cardboard actually! I think you can even see stains on it in the photos if you look closely. hah. I think I picked it up from Michaels? it’s been a while so I don’t exactly remember. I also use a larger white presentation board from Michaels too (it has the benefit of standing up on its own). The surface is a white marble slab. hope this helps!

Nicole @MyQuestForBalance August 1, 2013 at 5:26 am

This fudge looks unreal. I’m trying to kick my sweet tooth because it’s been a tad out of control with all of the summer parties and fro-yo trips, and you are killing me with this recipe! In a good way of course. I’m so happy all your recipes are health conscious so at least I won’t be straying to far from my goals if I keep whip this up one evening.

And you were right, your landlord’s kitchen is UNREAL. I had total kitchen envy. Glad you were able to enjoy yourself in that amazing space!

I agree with you on the hair thing – whenever I decide to get it put up by someone else, I pretty much always wish I’d not bothered and just done it myself!

It might work, however they might turn out a bit more “greasy” since walnut butter tends to be so slick.

I love your recipes, thank you so much for them. I live in Spain and I do buy coconut oil for my skin but it is really expensive, only available from a health food shop, and I can’t imagine using it in any great quantity in cooking. It costs me more than 17 euros for 500ml. This is a tough call but can you think of any substitute that I could use that does not mean I have to mortgage the house?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 2, 2013 at 8:30 am

Hey Chris, That’s a tough one – the coconut oil is used in this recipe because it solidifies the fudge as it hardens when chilled. I don’t know of another substitute, but if I think of anything I will let you know!

Reply

bethany April 9, 2016 at 5:58 pm

Could you use red palm oil in place of coconut oil? I was just about to make this and I’m a quarter cup short on coconut oil.. I have red palm which solidifies like coconut oil so I was thinking of using that…

Reply

I ended up using red palm oil as I only had about half of the amount of coconut oil left.. it came out amazing!! :)

Raw fudge…never would’ve thought about it but now it’s all I CAN think about. LOL Hmmm may have to give this a whirl this evening. I’m thinking the pecans from my yard would be a great topper…

When you mentioned the hair/makeup I had to laugh. I did the same thing the morning of my wedding. After the professional left, I went into the ladies room and my best friend and I “made under” my heavily made up and styled self. Just feels so strange. You’re gorgeous and you don’t need help chica!! Def looking forward to the book!

Barb C August 1, 2013 at 2:41 pm

I just made these and am waiting for them to firm up to try my first one. I subbed sunflower seed butter just because I am fresh out of my homemade almond butter. I may have to hide some from the kids and my husband! Luckily, they whipped up so fast, I can make more easily. I have already made 2 or three batches of the almond butter cups – they went fast! Also, I put some of this in little heart-shaped silicone molds, and the rest in a loaf pan.

Angela,

This sounds amazing. I’m sure my family will love this. Do you think this would work with cashews or macadamias instead of walnuts? I’m allergic to walnuts and almonds. I’m wondering what type of nut butter would be best as a substitution and what type of chopped nuts? Thanks!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2013 at 10:36 am

Hey Kathy, I think hazelnuts would be killer in this, as would pecans or macadamias like you suggested. For the nut butter, I would think peanut butter would be great (if you can eat it, that is) as would sunflower seed butter. Hope this helps! Let me know what you end up trying if you make it.

Cathy August 3, 2013 at 12:54 pm

Hi Angela – this looks SO scrumptious and i’m bookmarking it to try it later this week. Just to clarify, you pour the mixture into a LOAF pan, not a square 8×8 or 9×9 pan? Thanks !!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2013 at 10:28 am

Hey Cathy, Yes a loaf pan is what I used although a square pan would be fine too, the fudge would just be much thinner. enjoy!

This was great! I omitted the walnuts, since I’m not a fan of whole nuts in food. But it turned out wonderfully. We had some company over and made this for dessert.

After it’s frozen, should I refrigerate it to keep it over, or freeze it again?

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2013 at 10:29 am

So glad it worked out for you Brandon :) You can keep it in the fridge or freezer – your call! Enjoy the leftovers

Hi Angela!!!
I’m so excited to try and make this fudge, after watching Forks over Knives, I have been switching my family and I to eating more plant based foods and we’re even going to do a plant based 8 week challenge which my mom is really skeptical about but I’m so excited of all the recipes “she said” I can teach her how to make!!! YAY!! But the reason I’m commenting is because I am 16, in high school and I have a few questions. I am starting XC this year at my school, because last year during a hard time in my life (depression, anxiety, social problems, etc.) I started running. I did about 4 miles every single weekend and I felt vibrant and happy so I thought I would try and join my cross country team. I was curious of what you would reccomend I eat pre race and post race? Most of the things like gels and jelly beans and bars and gatorade aren’t tasty to me and they are definitely not plant based and healthy. Also my team is having a potluck and since I’m a new member I thought I would make some food (also they won’t have anything vegan/plantbased) so I was wondering what you would reccomend to make that people might be intrigued to try! Thanks and even if you are too busy to answer I hope you keep on with the AWESOME posts on this blog!!! Thanks!!

Love,
Casey

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2013 at 10:35 am

Hey Casey, Thanks for your lovely comment! For a potluck, I would recommend a portable salad, such as my Back on Track wheatberry salad, Adzuki bean and quinoa Tabbouleh salad with a twist, or cumin lime back bean quinoa salad. They transport well. You can find my salad recipes here: http://ohsheglows.com/recipage/?search_term=salad&ui=133&c=1
As for pre workout, generally unrefined carbs are best – it really depends on the person what works so you might have to experiment to find what your stomach can handle and how long you should eat before. I find a large banana and a tiny bit of almond butter is good before a light to moderate workout. Some people like toast and banana with nut butter. I generally save smoothies for post-workouts and I load them up with protein like hemp and chia seeds and occasionally plant-based protein powder too (such as Sunwarrior raw) for recovery. Hope this helps!

Angela, this was gorgeous. I made this over the weekend for a picnic (mostly to impress somebody) and they were truly, absolutely amazing – slightly melted by the time we arrived (we travelled about an hour), but still great! Really, really impressed. I’m not yet vegan but successful experiments such as these are so inspiring! Please keep sharing.

Speaking of creativity – have you ever heard of and/or used Besan? It is ground up chickpeas. Middle Eastern folk use it as a flour. I buy it very cheap at the Middle East market in my town and I use it for my pizza crusts. This creates a very nice, thin, crisp crust and I love eating it because of the flavor and nutritional value.

I stumbled across your website today and found this recipe. I decided to make it when I got home since I already had all the ingredients. It was super easy to make (10-15 minutes), and it only took about 25 minutes to set. This fudge is DELICIOUS!!!!! I’ve never tried making any type of fudge before, but it came out perfect! Even my husband (he’s an omnivore) loves them! Thanks for the recipe, I will undoubtedly make this again in the future!!

I have been switching from vegetarian to vegan over the past couple of months and your food is easy to make and delicious!! Especially to my husband who is not vegetarian! :) Slowly but surely I am changing his meals and he has not even noticed the difference! HA! I have a couple of questions for you:
I wanted to know what brand of cocoa powder do you use? I have the Hershey’s unsweetened. I also wanted to know what food processor you use in your recipes.

Angela (Oh She Glows) November 26, 2013 at 4:16 pm

Hey Alexandra, Thanks for your lovely comment!
I use a Cuisinart 14 cup processor, but you totally dont need one that large. I think a 9 cup would probably do just fine! They have dif. sizes.
I use various brands of unsweetened cocoa powder…depends on which grocery store I happen to be in. I probably use the Cuisine Camino brand the most though. Hope this helps!

Mine turned out pretty flat like a pancake, is this normal?. Also I had a very hard time mixing it, was very thick…did I do something wrong with it as I followed the directions. It does taste great though. Perhaps next time I will roll them up in balls and then roll them in shredded coconut to make tiny truffles. They just taste and seem more like chocolates but I do love them!

This is a bit of a dumb question…. but once you have taken it out and have cut into squares, do you keep it in the freezer until you want some (or does it ‘melt’ at room temp?)…

Hi Angela,
I wanted to tell you that this recipe is delicious. I made a batch and couldn’t be happier with the results. I posted about it on my blog with a link back to you and your fabulous recipe.
Thanks so much,

Hi, I made this and the chocolate and oil separated before I even got to add the walnuts. Any ideas as to why? I’m wondering if it’s due to the hot climate here in Australia? It’s not overly hot inside but the coconut oil is melted (not white like it is in your pic). Otherwise I don’t understand why it’s not working, as I’ve made it once before and it worked fine …?

I have always used solid coconut oil and it is perfect every time. If yours is liquified put it in the fridge until it is solid and try again. It is well worth the effort.

My niece made this for me as a Christmas treat this past year and, well, let’s just say my taste buds rejoiced. Such a gorgeously rich chocolate fudge. p.s. I just made myself a batch and cannot wait until it’s out of the freezer.

This is so delicious and satisfying!!! Very rich and creamy. It reminded me of chocolatey cheesecake. It’s dangerous how easy it was to make :)

I absolutely love this recipe ! I make it all the time . I would love to make it for my yoga studios gathering next week but I’m afraid that in the Kansas summer heat it will get all melty even indoors . Any suggestions for how I can alter the recipe to make it stand up a little more at room temperature ? I thought of adding dates into it but I’m just not sure how that would work . Or maybe if there’s another similar recipe you know of that would be a little more solid at warm room temperature ? I love your recipes and I have your cookbook and have made many of the dishes from it . A little more work and my husband might be open to being a vegan LOL !

Hello,
This is one of my favourite staple recipes. I have made it many times. I make it without the nuts or with slivered almonds. I have also put in mini marshmallows which the kids love. I am wondering if I can use a food processor rather than a mixer as my mixer is up north.
Thanks again for your wonderful recipes. Me and my family enjoy them immensely.

Hey Jennifer, I’m so happy you love this recipe! I haven’t tried a food processor or blender, but I can’t see why both wouldn’t work? I’d just be cautious not to overmix it. Please let me know if you try anything out!
