Raw Paleo Choc Fudge Bites

Ok, so I’m aware that I have a bit of a thing for chocolate. Actually I’m a self-confessed chocaholic. But today I just felt like something tiny, not too sweet, but just enough to satisfy that urge for chocolate without causing me to then go overboard and consume an entire batch of whatever I happened to be making. Hence the word “bites” in the title – I think these are the perfect size to satisfy your urge for something sweet with a cup of tea or coffee, or after dinner. Rich, not too sweet, yet strangely – and excitingly – satisfying.


3/4 cup chopped dried apricots

1/2 cup raisins

1/4 cup shredded coconut

4 heaped tbsp almond meal

3/4 cup cashew butter

1 heaped tbsp carob powder

3 heaped tbsp cacao powder

1/4 cup coconut oil (but if you want harder fudge bites, substitute half cacao butter)


In a food processor, put apricots, almond meal, coconut and cashew butter and process until fairly smooth. Add carob and cacao and process until mixed well. Add coconut oil and raisins and process until just blended. Using an ice tray or other mould, sprinkle a little cacao powder into the bottom of each cube tray and add mixture to each one. I used 2 trays. Then simply set in the fridge for twenty to thirty minutes, or if you’re impatient like me, in the freezer for ten. Pop them out onto a plate or a container – and they’re perfect for after dinner with a cup of tea or coffee. The only thing with these little things is that if it’s really warm, like it is here at the moment, it’s a good idea to keep them in the fridge, unless you’ve used half coconut half cacao butter. This will keep them nice and firm. Finally, to serve – sift a little cacao over the top (optional of course).
