Ingredients

Instructions

Mix everything in a saucepan

  • Break The chocolate bar into chunks and place it in a saucepan. Then add the maple syrup and coconut oil and let the chocolate melt over medium-low heat. 
  • Once the chocolate has melted add in the arrowroot powder, cashew butter, salt, and coconut sugar. Using a whisk, stir everything together until well incorporated.
  • Remove the fudge off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and chopped toasted pecans.

Pour the fudge in a baking dish and refrigerate

  • Now line a 9x9 inch baking dish with parchment paper and pour the fudge inside. Then you can top it with a few additional chopped pecans.
  • Now cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 3 hours or until the fudge is solid.
  • Once the chocolate fudge has solidified you can cut it into about 24 pieces. Place the fudge pieces in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for about one week. 

Notes

SUBSTITUTIONS:
Arrowroot powder can be replaced with Tapioca starch, potato starch, or cornstarch. But they will have a grainier texture and may cause your fudge to be less smooth. I find that arrowroot powder gives this fudge the creamiest and smoothest texture.
Almond butter can be used in place of cashew butter. But cashew butter will give you the creamiest fudgy texture.
How to store it
The best way to store chocolate fudge is by placing the pieces in an airtight container with a sheet of wax paper in between each layer. This keeps the fudge from sticking to itself and also locks in moisture so that the fudge doesn't get dry and crumbly. You can leave it in the fridge or at room temperature, whichever you prefer.
How long will it keep
Paleo fudge can last about 1 week when left at room temperature or in the fridge. If you want to keep it for longer, you may want to place it in the freezer, where it can stay for a few months in an airtight container.
