Presenting, my frozen hot chocolate fudge! Similar in taste and shape to chocolate bark, this treat will win your friends over at holiday parties or stash it in your freezer to snack whenever. Guilt-free snacking that is. The texture reminds me exactly of a blended frozen hot chocolate, without the added sugars and dairy. Just beware when indulging, this fudge melts quickly! So keep it in the freezer until ready to enjoy.
Buying bulk nuts, seeds, and grains is one of my favorite ways to shop. I used to take in a bunch of glass jars to the store to fill up, but lately I’ve been using my stasher bags! Their size and shape are seriously so convenient for buying bulk and keeping food fresh. I also love the fact that stasher bags can be kept in the freezer. They don’t stick together and are so easy to transport (i.e. holiday parties I’m looking at you).
Dairy-Free Frozen Hot Chocolate Fudge Recipe
- 1/3 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 can of full-fat coconut milk (solids only)
- bulk-bought nuts or seeds (I used pumpkin seeds, puffed quinoa, and walnuts)
- 2 tbsp. honey or maple syrup
- Prepare a room temperature baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. *Pro tip: spray or melt some coconut oil on the pan and then place the parchment paper on top, this keeps it from moving*
- In a small non-stick saucepan, heat the coconut oil over low heat until liquefied.
- Add cacao powder, coconut milk solids, and sweetener, stirring slowly until dissolved.
- Turn off heat.
- Pour mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Lightly sprinkle nut and seed mixture on top.
- Pop into the freezer for at least 1 hour or overnight.
- Pull solid pan out of the freezer.
- Quickly (because it will melt) section off fudge with a knife into 8 large slices.
- Break into smaller pieces and store in a stasher bag in the freezer until ready to eat.
