I am so excited to be able to share this recipe with you!
I’ve been enjoying this Double Layer Chocolate Turmeric Fudge for years from Catch a Healthy Habit Cafe and Glen the owner of Catch a Healthy Habit is sharing his recipe with us!
It’s chocolatey, fudgy, creamy and yummy — everything you want in a piece of fudge! But it’s also packed with goodness!
The base layer is creamy and not overly sweet, then it’s topped with a rich chocolate ganache and cacao nibs for crunch… are you drooling yet?
Glen’s recipe is actually a adaptation from Gourmande in the Kitchen. The original recipe is ALL Chocolate, chocolate base and chocolate ganache topping. Glen put turmeric in the base instead of cacao for some extra nutrients and it is delish!
Still so much chocolatey richness but some added nutritional goodness from the super food turmeric.
This fudge is made with just 8 real, whole foods and it takes just 20 minutes to prep! Then it chills in the fridge for an hour (or longer — I often leave it overnight because I usually make it in the evening) and it’s ready to enjoy!
The base layer is just 5 simple ingredients: raw cashews, shredded coconut, dates, turmeric, maple syrup and a pinch of sea salt.
And it couldn’t be easier to whip up! You literally mix it all in food processor, then press it into an 8×8 pan.
The top layer is chocolate ganache made with maple syrup, coconut oil and cacao powder, and topped with a sprinkle of cacao nibs.
This too is whipped together in a food processor until it’s creamy and luscious… don’t you want to just take a taste?
Pour it on the fudge base layer…
And top with cacao nibs for crunch… I highly recommend this step! I am not a huge fan or cacao nibs on their own but paired with the chocolate ganache the crunch is soooo good!
That’s it! No refined sugars, lots of antioxidants, minerals and healthy fats. So much wholesome goodness in one rich, yummy treat!
Let it chill for at least an hour — or as I often do, overnight, then cut into squares and enjoy!
Hope you love this fudge as much as we do!

What size pan to use? Would 8 x 8 work? Thanks so much!

Thank you for sharing the recipe. Is the shredded coconut dry or fresh? Thanks
Good question! It is dried coconut… let me know if you try the fudge.
Hey I wanted to try this recipe tomorrow, I just don’t have maple syrup. Would honey work as a replacement for this recipe??
So happy you want to try these! And great question! I have never made these with honey… it should work but you might need a but you might need a bit more honey …. lmk if you try.
I made this Yesterday and it was so good ? I added a layer on top of the ganache-maple syrup, coconut oil and peanut butter. My layer of ganache wasnt thick like yours and needed more gooey goodness. Thanks , T
That sounds so yummy! Thanks for sharing!
