Say hello to the new kid on the block! This Healthy Choc treat is absolutely amazing!! Decadent, soft and goey, chocolatey, and hits the spot immediately!
I stumbled across the original recipe on the Wholefood Simply Blog, (which by the way, if you don't know about yet.. you NEED to check out.) Bianca's original recipe is a Choc Walnut Fudge. However, I didn't have Walnuts, so I used Cashews instead, and I also decided to double the Chocolate mixture.
Here's how I did it.
Get out a frying pan, and put it over medium heat. Heat up your Cashews and sprinkle your salt in. This took a little while, and I kept increasing the heat. (You can continue onto the Chocolate mixture part while your waiting if you like.) Once the Cashews are quite warm, add 1 tablespoon of the Honey and stir it all together. Remove the frying pan from the stove, and set aside.
Now for the Chocolate Mixture! Simply blend up the remaining ingredients really well, until you get a smooth and consistent mixture. Yep - so simple!
Line a loaf tin with baking paper, and make sure it's hanging over the edges. Mix the Cashews through the Chocolate mixture, and pour into the loaf tin smoothing out the top.
Pop it into the freezer for at least a couple hours to set.. and that's it!! Chop it up as you like, but remember to keep it in the freezer and eat it straight from there. It's quite a soft mixture, so if you leave it out for too long, it will melt away!
What are you waiting for?! It's so delicious AND healthy!! I really encourage you to try these if you LOVE chocolate but want to use healthier ingredients!! You won't regret it.
Oh!! - Guess who's Thermomix is arriving today?! I'm SOOOO excited!! I decided that I really do love using one, and it's just blends and grinds everything up so quick. It's also gotten me in the kitchen cooking actual meals (which hubby is excited about haha) so it's been really great. I can return my Mother-in-Laws now and get exploring my own! Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday.. and Merry Christmas AGAIN to me!
