Poor brazil nuts are so underrated. After all, they are the universally discarded nuts from mixed nuts packets - am I wrong?!
I love brazil nuts, so I decided to create a raw sweet to honour them.
This fudge is so luscious and rich. It melts in your mouth. The chocolate topping just completes the swoon!
Raw Brazil Nut Fudge
1.5 cups brazil nuts
2/3 cups rolled oats
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
3 tbsp liquid sweetener (I used maple syrup)
dash of salt and vanilla
2 tbsp each of melted coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa/cacao
To make the fudge, grind the brazil nuts and oats together until they form a fine powder. Add the coconut oil, sweetener, salt and vanilla. Press (or pour - the mixture is actually soft and a bit runny, but don't worry it does set!) into a loaf tin lined with baking paper and pop it in the freezer.
Make the chocolate topping by whisking the oil, cocoa and maple syrup together.
Spread this over the top of the fudge.
Freeze until set!
