recipe: vegan avocado & peanut fudge

Avocados are a source of healthy fats, as well as containing over twenty vitamins and minerals. I thought I would try a healthier take on a sweet treat this time round.

Vegan Avocado & Peanut Fudge

1 ½ cups vegan chocolate chips
1 cup coconut sugar
¾ cup coconut milk (place in fridge beforehand and use hardened top and bottom layers)
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp sea salt
2 large avocados
½ cup chopped peanuts

Steps:

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the first six ingredients. Stir over medium heat until completely melted. Turn the heat off, and set the mixture aside.

2. Remove the skin and pits from the avocados. Place in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Then add the chocolate mixture and blend again until well combined.

3. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. (I tried using tin foil the first time round, and it was a disaster! Use parchment to ensure that the fudge won’t stick to the dish.) Pour the fudge evenly into the dish. Top with peanuts. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours, and keep the fudge in there until just before serving. The cooler it is, the firmer it is, which makes it easier to cut and to eat! Bon appétit!
