What the fudge! That’s what you’ll be saying when you try this recipe. I almost ate it all before I put it in the freezer, but I managed to stop myself.
Some people don’t realize that chocolate contains caffeine. Caffeine can make us anxious, give us trouble sleeping, and affect our moods. But that doesn’t mean we should have to give up chocolate!
That’s why this raw vegan fudge is perfect. Carob is like a sweet version of cacao and has absolutely no caffeine! If you don’t mind the caffeine, then substitute the carob for cacao if you want. This recipe is completely versatile, and you can modify it however you like.
One combination that I think is incredibly splendid is rose and chocolate. Rose in general just heightens the flavor of any dessert. If you love sweetness with a hint of floral notes, or if you have never tried rose at all, I think you’ll really enjoy this rose carob fudge.
- ½ cup sunflower seed butter (for texture)
- ¼ cup carob or Cosmic cacao (but note that the latter contains caffeine)
- ¼ cup Sawyer’s organic maple syrup (or chopped dates)
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2+ Tbsp pure rose water
- 1 tsp Vaoala vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp dried organic rose petals (I used white rose tea bags and opened them up)
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl, adding more of any ingredient to taste. The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t need to cook it, so you can taste and add as you go.
- Put the fudge in silicone molds to shape into hearts, or in a square dish with parchment paper.
- Garnish the top and bottom with edible rose petals.
- Place the dish in the freezer for an hour to two before serving.
*This vegan fudge is good at room temperature, too, so you can also enjoy it without putting it in the freezer!
