Almost all of us crave a sweet treat to finish of a meal however they are almost always 95% sugar and 5% artificial. Since forever I have loved buttery and crumbly fudge squares especially when I’m on holiday though I never before took into account the amount of rubbish I was putting in my body with just a few bites. One piece of Tesco’s fudge contains 60 calories which is insane considering the size and so many people eat up to six to seven squares a pop. Taking this into consideration, I have been longingly wanting to create my own savoury-ish fudge that I can indulge on without feeling guilty.
-16 oz Medjool Dates (pitted)
- -3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
-10 tablespoons Peanut Butter
Start by soaking the dates in warm water for ten minutes. If your dates aren’t already pitted, remove the seeds. This will makes the dates tender and easy to blend.
Next, begin blending the peanut butter with the cocoa powder until it turns into a smooth chocolatey paste. Add the dates to the blender. You may want to cut them up into small chunks to make the blending process quicker.
Spoon into a container and chill in the freezer for a couple of hours (I left mine in overnight).
Cut the fudge up into squares, I put some of mine in clingfilm to store them.
