FDT Chocolate fudge with toasted nuts and coconut
I had actually planned to share the recipe for my favorite soothing tea with you today, but with the horrible outcome of the US election, then I think we could all use a comforting chocolate treat instead (..well except for those who actually voted for the guy). So I whipped up this delicious and super easy treat earlier today as I found it too hard to focus on the work I had planned. I think I am still a bit in shock after finding out about the result of the election this morning – though I know it might have been naive of me to not have seen it coming. It somehow helped a little to stuff my face with these yummy chocolate treats while laughing at the brilliant election memes that have been flooding facebook all day though ;)

Chocolate fudge ingredients:
100 grams dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao)
80 grams coconut milk/cream (I used the thick and creamy part from canned coconut milk)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
2 tablespoons akacia honey or pure maple sirup
1/4 teaspoon instant coffee – optional
A pinch of sea salt
1/2 deciliter (equals about 1/4 cup) chopped toasted nuts, I used almonds and hazelnuts
2 pitted dates, chopped
2 tablespoons shredded coconut or coconut chips
Simply add all the fudge ingredients to a saucepan on low to medium heat to slowly melt the chocolate and coconut cream. Stir until everything is smooth and well combined. Take the saucepan off the heat and add most of the fillings, but save a little to top the fudge with. Stir until the fudge and fillings are well combined and pour it into a small container lined with parchment paper. Add the toppings and place the chocolate fudge in the fridge to set. When the chocolate fudge have set all there is left to do is to cut it into bite sized pieces and enjoy!
