Oh, Yes, Eat Fudge and Be Healthy!

A 5-star recipe you will not want to miss

There’s a secret ingredient in this recipe that helps replace the dairy in this vegan, fudge-like treat. It’s avocado!

An important cooking note here to be mindful of: the key to a firmly set but fudgy texture is using bittersweet chocolate with minimum 60% cacao. Lower percentages will result in fudge with a scoop-able ganache-like texture instead of bars.

INGREDIENTS

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate (must be at least 60% cacao in order for the fudge to set properly), broken or chopped into small pieces if needed
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • ½ ripe avocado
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder, preferably Dutch-processed
  • ¾ tsp. kosher salt
  • Flaky sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Toast almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing halfway through, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely crush. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, place chocolate in a small glass or ceramic bowl and microwave in 20-second bursts, stirring well between each, until melted and smooth, 1–1½ minutes. Let cool slightly.
  • Spray a 9×5″ loaf pan with nonstick spray. Line with parchment paper or plastic wrap, leaving plenty of overhang on 2 sides (the spray will help it stick to the pan and cooperate more).
  • Purée avocado, maple syrup, and almond butter in a food processor until very smooth, about 1 minute. Add cocoa powder, kosher salt, and 2 Tbsp. cold water. Pulse until smooth, then add melted chocolate. Pulse just until combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. If you don’t have a processor, don’t worry, we used a mixer.)
  • Transfer chocolate mixture to prepared pan and smooth top. Scatter reserved almonds over, then season with sea salt; press in lightly. Chill until firm, about 1 hour. Remove by lifting up parchment, then cut into squares or bars to serve.
