Turmeric Fudge Base
  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup soft pitted dates (about 10 large dates)
  • 1½ teaspoons ground turmeric
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
Chocolate ganache:
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup extra virgin unrefined coconut oil (not melted)
  • ½ cup (organic) cacao powder
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • ¼ cup (organic) cacao nibs for topping
Turmeric fudge base:
  1. Line an 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place cashews in a food processor and process until very finely ground (it will be like an almond flour, maybe a little chunkier- just be careful to not over process the nuts into butter!)
  3. Add shredded coconut and process until well combined and fine in texture.
  4. Add the pitted dates and process until a soft paste forms.
  5. Add the turmeric and process again until well combined.
  6. Lastly, add the maple syrup and a pinch of salt and process to combine until it's a creamy texture -- you may have to scrape down the sides.
  7. Press firmly into lined pan.
  8. Place in fridge or freezer while making the ganache topping.
Chocolate Ganache
  1. In a food processor, blend together maple syrup and coconut oil until well combined.
  2. Add in cacao powder and a pinch of salt and process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  3. Pour chocolate ganache over fudge base and spread evenly over the top.
  4. Top with cacao nibs.
  5. Cover loosely with wax paper and return pan to fridge to set and firm for at least one hour. (Overnight is fine too!)
  6. Cut into squares and Enjoy! Best served cold. Store in an air tight container in the freezer (my preference) or in the fridge.
