Chocolate-Peppermint Raw Chilled Fudge (Bite This)

What can I say, we just moved into our new Brooklyn Hood and I needed a quick welcome to our new place desert. Which is easier said then done, when everything you own is packed tight in moving boxes.

But not to fear… the cute corner health food / deli had everything I needed. Organic chocolate bars, maple sugar and some fresh mint.

Remember this one is raw and is a bit on the delicate side. It doesn’t like warm rooms, so pull this out of the freezer just before serving.

For The Recipe

3 cups vegan chocolate chips or 1 dark chocolate and 1 mint dark chocolate bar

1/3 cup coconut butter

1/4 cup maple or palm sugar

1 1/2 cups homemade nut milk or soy milk

1/2 cup fresh peppermint leaves, chopped

Instructions
1. In a small pot, melt chocolate, butter, sugar and milk over low heat. Stir. When chocolate is melted and smooth, turn off heat.
2. Gently stir in fresh peppermint leaves. (The peppermint must be completely dry when you drop it into the chocolate.)
3. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
4. Pour the mix into a 9-by-9-inch baking pan and place the pan in the freezer until set, about an hour.
5. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the fudge into squares. (You may wish to rinse the knife under hot running water several times.)

    Holy moly, this looks divine! Never tried making chocolate with fresh mint, only mint essence from a bottle. One of my favorite drinks during the summer is coconut milk blended with ice, cacao nibs, and fresh mint. = )

     Is it really a raw recipe if using a vegan chocolate bar?  Is there a way to use cacao powder or nibs??

    FYI this is not a raw recipe – it is cooked!

  • V Blak

    Yes it is heated up but not beyond 115 degrees, its considered raw.  The enzymes have not been destroyed.
