These little fudge swirls are nice and creamy. Full of antioxidants from the good quality raw chocolate and well ...... just pretty damn yummy!
Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge Swirls
½ cup raw cacao paste
75ml coconut oil
50 ml agave
1 tsp mesquite
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 tsp vanilla powder
100ml raw cashews
100ml raw or roasted hazelnuts (depending if you want it 100%raw)
200ml pitted dates
Part 2 Preparation:
Place cashews and hazelnut into a bowl and cover with warm water for 2hrs
Place the dates into a measuring cup and then add warm water to 100ml. Push the dates down into the water so that they are fully submerged.
Make Part 1
Place all of the chocolate ingredients into a heatproof glass bowl and melt either in a dehydrator, oven at lowest temperature or over a hot water bath. Stir to combine then let it cool a little.
Adding Part 1 to part 2
Rinse and drain the nuts then add them along with the dates and date soak water to a high speed blender such as a vitamix. Add the remaining ingredients except the warm chocolate mix and blend until super smooth. Add the chocolate mix and continue to blend until it is fully combines and gorgeous looking.. J
Spoon into a piping bag, let cool in the fridge for about ½ hr then pipe swirls over single hazelnuts on a piece of greaseproof baking paper then place in the fridge or freezer to harden. They last well in both.
Leave them out for a while and they go soft and glossy.. be careful not to leave them out on a warm day as they will get too gooey! you'll end up having to eat them with a spoon.. but then, that could be good too ;-)
Enjoy your choccies and your weekend.. :-)
PS. I'll have an update on the veggie garden in the next post..
