Cocoa nut fridge fudge.


October 12, 2013 by alexanderwillowharvey

Its my besties birthday tomorrow, so naturally I had to make her something. This fudge is sooo simple to make, I just threw together some stuff I had lurking about in the kitchen, its a great gift when your a little strapped for cash and want something with that personal touch. It also looks super fancy without the need for fancy techniques, just chuck some nuts on top and its perfect! You can try different nut butters but stay away from brands that are very liquidly or overly sweet or your fudge will be to oily and too sugary, I used a natural peanut butter with out any sweeteners or sugar added and it worked well. Don’t have any birthdays coming up? Then this will make a brilliant Christmas gift as well! (No its not too early to be thinking about Christmas).

1 cup natural chunky peanut butter
3/4 cup vegan margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup flaked almonds
3 tbsp chopped roasted hazelnuts

Lightly grease and line a 8″ square brownie/tray bakes pan. Gently melt together the peanut butter and the margarine, stirring to combine, once melted together, stir in the vanilla and transfer to a mixing bowl. Allow to cool slightly before sifting and stirring in the cocoa powder. Sift in the icing sugar a bit at a time, at first it should be easy to stir together but as you add more icing sugar you may want to get in there with your hands and knead the mix together. Press evenly into the prepared pan and sprinkle over the flaked almonds and hazelnuts, cover with a piece of greaseproof paper and gently press in the nuts. Place in the fridge for about 1 hour to firm up before slicing with a nice sharp knife.

    Does this have to be kept in the fridge Alex? Making it for a gift and wondering if I should put a little tag on it to keep cold?
