Nice Recipe #3: Chocolate Fudge
Trying to secure your place on Santa's 'nice' list? Don't worry, there is still time to whip up a batch of this nice chocolate fudge - after all, you are what you eat!
400g can chickpeas, washed and drained
2 tablespoons Cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon peanut or almond butter
1 tablespoons dark choc chips (good quality, optional)*
1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter (optional)*
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)*
Place chickpeas, banana, cocoa and vanilla in a food processor
on high until well combined and smooth.
In a microwave safe bowl place peanut/ almond butter, choc chips* and butter or coconut oil*. Microwave on high until melted (don’t overcook!). Stir the mixture to combine and add sugar*. Continue stirring until
sugar dissolves. Add cocoa and combine.
Pour chocolate mixture into the food processor with the chickpea mixture on high until well combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
Line a slice tin or shallow cake pan with cling wrap (spraying the inside of the cake tin with oil will help the cling wrap stick and stay in place when laid over the top). Spoon the fudge mixture into the lined tin and smooth out. Completely cover over the fudge mixture with cling wrap and place in the freezer for 4 -5 hours before removing, unwrapping, slicing and serving.
Now its time to head on over to Loving Lunches and check out the Naught version (clink image below) - but remember Santa knows if you've been Naught or Nice!
