Raw Cacao Fudge with Goji Berries

Ingredients
Directions
  • Melt the cacao butter in a double boiler and then pour into a blender.
  • Slice the vanilla beans in half lengthwise. With a spoon, thoroughly scrape the insides of the beans and add to blender.
  • Blend until vanilla is totally broken down and mixture feels warm.
  • Pour into a large mixing bowl and stir in the salt, coconut syrup, and almond butter by hand.
  • Grind the cacao nibs in a coffee grinder until finely ground. Add to the large mixing bowl along with the cacao powder.
  • Fold the goji berries into the mixture.
  • Stir by hand until smooth and there are no pockets of cacao powder.
  • Line a baking sheet or pan with heavy waxed paper
  • Transfer mixture to the baking sheet or pan and use a spatula to get a smooth top.
  • Set in the fridge or freezer until fudge becomes hard. This will take about 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the fridge or freezer and cut into the size and shapes you choose.
  • Feel free to get creative and substitute your favorite fruit or nuts or a combo of both! You could also try topping it with nibs or coconut! Mmm!
