Vegan Macadamia Fudge

Realising there’s no way of winning there, I’ve stopped fighting my evening sweet-tooth cravings a while ago but I do still like to keep those after-dinner treats on the healthier side, without crazy amounts of sugar, especially with these snacking-prone times we find ourselves in (aka lock-downs and such). The Peanut Slice and the super easy vegan dark chocolate have been a staple in my fridge/freezer for a while now and although I can never get bored of them I wanted to try something new. As macadamias are one of my favourite nuts, I decided to make a bit of a more white-chocolatey spin on the peanut slice, resulting in a fudge-like, super creamy texture. What is really great is that only a handful of ingredients and 5 minutes of your time (plus 20 for chilling) are needed  and even without any cooking skills, if you know how to use a microwave and mix some things together in a bowl, you should be alright.

Method:

  1. Simply melt the cacao butter and coconut butter either using a double boiler or in a microwave, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once the butters have melted, add the salt, maple syrup and macadamia butter. You can add a pinch of cardamom at this stage as well, if using. Mix well.
  3. Pour the mixture into a baking paper covered plastic container or tray, for these amounts of ingredients, approx 20cm x 10cm size will work best.
  4. Sprinkle with toppings if using them and place in the freezer for 20 min. Cut into pieces of your liking and store in an air-tight container in the freezer. Due to the high fat-percentage of the macadamia nuts, these will be soft enough to eat straight from the freezer.
