Nutrition Facts

Directions

  • 1. Throw the ingredients in a tiny bowl.
  • 2. Grab a spoon and take the bowl back to your TV.
  • 3. Mix it together while you're watching TV because it can take a little while to mix properly, especially if your coconut oil is hard. It'll look really dry at  first, but don't add any extra anything. Just go with my measurements and mix it together slowly and carefully with a spoon. Within a minute you'll get the texture seen in my above pic.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Picture this... You've just had dinner. You're watching TV on the couch. Your non-raw husband pulls out a little chocolate bar beside you, and you wish you could have a little taste of chocolate too. What do you do? You run into the kitchen and make my 1 minute raw chocolate fudge, that's what!

It's so quick that you can do it in a commercial break, and...it only requires three ingredients.

You'll notice that this makes a very tiny serving size, so you'll want to make it in a tiny bowl so that you can stir it properly against the sides of the bowl. I use little tiny custard bowls.

This raw chocolate fudge is really sweet so you don't need much of it to get a nice hit of sweet chocolate flavour. This recipe reminds me of my tiny raw halvah recipe, actually, since they are both tiny sweet snacks you can pull together very quickly.

Kait's Review

Raw chocolate fudge in 1 minute
2
2 out of 5

Wow. This was so intense I couldn't eat it. It was super bitter and powdery, sorry rawtarian. At first I added 2 tsp cashew butter but that didn't help, so I added another teaspoon of sweetener (I used a vegan honey substitute). It was more palatable but still too powdery. Then i added some soy milk. And some more. But it still tasted powdery. So I added more coconut oil and then another teaspoon of sweet freedom. It's much better now. In retrospect I wondered whether it might have worked better using avocado at the start instead of coconut oil, as it would have compensated for the liquid, the added fat, and might have improved the texture. It definitely hit the chocolate spot.

Should the coconut oil be in its liquid or solid state? Also does this really get to a fudgey, chewy consistency, or is it very syrupy?

Hello! I mixed mine with chopped walnuts and Nibs!
After mixing and mashing with a spoon and adding nuts and nibs I spread mine out on parchment paper, Sprinkled Cocoa Nibs on top, and froze for approximately 20 minutes. Then cut into 4 squares.
I make sure I do not add more coconut oil than is absolutely needed; otherwise the flavor can dominate. I also had a nice jolt of energy after one piece *L*!
Thank you so much for this really wonderful and quick recipe!

I'm not raw, vegan or any of those things but ran across this recipe and its fantastic. I did add to it though. I added 1 TBSP peanut butter, 1/2 TBSP unsweetened coconut, 1 TBSP finely chopped nuts rolled into perfect balls and then rolled them in coconut sugar. I put them in the fridge for one hour and they were FABULOUS. The additions got me 5 small fudge balls.

KellyAnn's Review

Raw chocolate fudge in 1 minute
5
5 out of 5

I have a similar recipe that uses maple syrup instead of honey because Im a vegan, but it tastes the same. What I like to do after making this is split it up into 2-3 mini muffin liners and place them in either the fridge (more fudge like consistency) or freezer (like a hard chocolate consistency). I also sometimes replace 1 Tbsp of the cocoa powder with PB2 powder to make it chocolate peanut butter fudge. Or, you can put a small amount of this chocolate in the bottom of a mini muffin liner, then a small dab of real peanut butter, then cover with more of this chocolate and freeze it. Homemade, raw peanut butter cup!

Love this recipe!! I am a very time poor mum of two so for me, easy quick and tasty recipes rule! I just made a double batch inbetween putting my baby down for a play on the floor and then putting him to bed. It was so easy, and yum. I added a teaspoon of stevia to make it more palatable for master 4, then rolled half the mix into 6 little balls which I coated with shredded coconut. To the rest in the bowl I added a big tablespoon of ground hazelnut, mixed it all in and then rolled into 6 little balls. I popped them all into the freezer for 10 minutes and then took a few out for morning tea. I love them! Unfortunately Master 4 needs a bit more convincing but I'll keep working on him.

I know me messing with the recipe technically means I've not made 1 minute fudge; but since I had more than one minute I just figured, why not? Thanks for making my first foray into raw sweets so easy and delicious :)

Raw chocolate fudge in 1 minute

5 out of 5

This was an absolutely delicious recipie!
I work in with youth and had a group of 10 under 13's today. I wanted to teach them about being vegan (as I am) and they love chocolate so this worked so perfectly!! We rolled them into balls and dusted with cocoa then left in the fridge for about 30mins. They were so yummy and the kids loved the whole process! I was thinking whether eating honey was 'vegan'. Veganism is so natural and bees cannot survive without making honey so I definitely feel comfortable eating honey as a vegan!
Thank you for the awesome recipe!!

I could not be happier with this! That being said, halfway through it got to be too much (I had no milk, nut or otherwise, to go with it) -- but I added a TSP of strawberry preserves which turned it into a delicious pudding sort of thing. Can't wait to use it as a cake-topper... one day! Cheers.

Hi Astra, yummy! I have frequently added some thawed frozen raspberries to my little bowl, and I bet it tasted similar too. What are you doing in Madagascar with no kitchen?

I just read the comments about you using honey in your recipes. I notice that in most recipes you do provide alternative natural sweeteners. Unprocessed or raw organic honey is very nutritious, I love it and prefer to use it over other processed natural sweeteners. Please keep doing what your doing, your website and recipes are great!

Hi Sissy, Thanks! I too find that using raw, unprocessed honey (locally made, just down the road from me!) is a much better sweetener for me and my family.  I have received a lot of criticism (even by a book publisher, in fact!) because it's not vegan, but to me it's not quite the same thing as eating lamp chops!

Hi S, This one is probably the most "instant" recipe (since it literally takes minutes and no equipment).

But these haystacks are easy and they don't require any equipment. https://www.therawtarian.com/raw-chocolate-haystacks

If you have a food processor this raw chite chocoloate is easy, and brownies are easy too.

Hmmmmm... Not really worth the "1 minute" it was meant to take (it took 10 - 20 mins for me) I really didn't like the taste very much either! Or the consistency it was much too oily and sticky, even though I put the exact amounts it said on screen I must have done something wrong. It was much too difficult to stir and the coconut oil just stayed in clumps and wouldn't melt, so I ended up having to squish it and stir it with my hands! I might be the first person on here that hasn't absolutely adored this recipe! Maybe I'll give it another go sometime. (No offence!) I will definitely be trying some more of your other recipes though! Everything sounds gorgeous! Sorry if I offended anyone! x

Just made this and I admit it is very tasty, but I find it a bit too sweet. Think next time (and there'll definitely be a next time) I'll add a bit less honey and taste as I go. I can imagine that some chopped cashew nuts or hazel nuts would take this to another level. Great to know when that inevitable chocolate urge hits, I have all the ingredients handy.
Loving your site so far - thank you <3

I have just begun transitioning to a raw diet for me and my 8 and 4 year old daughters. I was getting worried that I would not be able to find a raw, chocolate treat for us before I found this recipe. We tried it just now, and it was amazing. It kindof tastes like brownie batter before you cook. Thank you so much for this recipe.

Brown rice syrup is an amazing good sweetener substitute. It is one of the only sugars that is easier for your body to process because it is glucose. I also believe it is raw. All other sweeters are fructose, which is harder on the body. Much research has been done and agave is just a bad if not worse than high fructose corn syrup. Yes many vegans do not use honey, but honey also does have a distinct taste, which may take away from a recipe. Anyway, I made this with brown rice syrup an it was amazing! Thank you so much Laura and I would encourage you to try or use brown rice syrup in all of your recipes ;)

Hi, Greetings from Alaska! I LOVE your site :) had a question about the coconut oil... i have only used it in my "pre - raw" days, If I just pull it out of the cupboard and scrape some out will it really mix in with the rest being that it is a solid or am i thinking of the wrong product? Sorry of this is a silly question but I guess I'm just envisioning white chunks of this oil and not being able to blend it and getting it to mix in... just curious...Cant wait to try!!!

Hi Verna,

Another one in a cold climate just like me :)

Yes, you are right about the white chunks! Just keep stirring/mixing with a spoon slowly. It's okay if it's in its solid state, you can blend with a spoon and get the chunks out. It will just take a while. Mine is usually in a solid state as well unless it's the height of summer

I boiled some water and set my bowl inside the water to warm up the coconut oil. Only takes 76 degrees F to make it a liquid. So don't keep it in there to long. Than add the coco powder. Delish! and Quick!

Dear Laura:

Your website is really great. Thanks for sharing. Adding to the comment above from Darryl Whalen from Seattle. Honoring true and complete veganism is avoiding the inclusion of anything animal in any way, shape, or form or from any derivative. But for this particular recipe, the fudge is a raw recipe rather than a raw vegan fudge receipe. Laura, if you had the time or wanted to include additional information for this recipe, you could include a vegan substitute note for the honey as a sweetner. But from what I can tell from your website, the focus of your website is on easy-to-make raw food recipes.

Hi Laura,

I love your site and what you are doing.

Please consider that there are alternatives to honey and that for many, it is not seen as being at all, a vegan food.

You seem like a kind and lovely gal and it is my responsibility to myself and to all other creatures to speak up when i find these opportunities:

Veganism is a way of living which excludes all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, the animal kingdom, and includes a reverence for life. It applies to the practice of living on the products of the plant kingdom to the exclusion of flesh, fish, fowl, eggs, honey, animal milk and its derivatives, and encourages the use of alternatives for all commodities derived wholly or in part from animals.

Thank you,

Darryl Whalen
Seattle

Hi Darryl,

Thank you for your empassioned response. I commend the respect you have for animals.

I do agree with you that honey isn't vegan. However, a while ago I made a personal decision to stop using processed agave nectar in favor of local honey that is collected in my neighbourhood.

That being said when providing my recipes think that you are right that I should be providing a honey OR alternative sweetener in the same recipe. The main honey alternatives that I'm aware of are agave nectar, stevia powder, maple syrup (not raw) or dates.

What is your preferred honey substitute?
