1 cup walnuts (soaked 2-3 hours, rinsed, drained)
1/2 cup coconut (shredded)
3 tablespoons coconut oil (gently melted)
2 to 3 tablespoons raw cacao
4 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar
1. Chop everything in a food processor (I tried the Vitamix and it worked okay too) until fudgey consistency.
2. Spread the fudge on a lightly oiled plate and cut in small pieces using a knife or cookie cutter (heart shaped is cute). You can add a lollipop stick if you want.
3. Keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat.
4. Eat as is or dust with spices of your choice.
I love the cacao/spices combination.
I use spices not only for their lovely taste, but also for their medicinal properties: turmeric and black pepper help prevent cancer, ginger warms you up and gives you energy, cinnamon is antibacterial, cumin helps digestion.
For these lollipops, I used my regular raw fudge recipe.
I don't remember where it comes from exactly. It was inspired by many other recipes and modified over the time.
Any raw fudge would be great.
I had lots of fun making these Valentine's day hearts with the kids. They enjoyed choosing their favorite spices.
The most liked flavors: Espelette pepper, turmeric-coconut powder, cinnamon-cacao, cinnamon-cacao-ginger.
