I was going to call this recipe Chocolate Tahini Fudge, but I didn’t want to scare anyone off who may be intimidated by tahini. If you haven’t used tahini in a sweet recipe before, you are totally missing out! I love using tahini in salad dressings and sauces, but I think it is secretly the best ingredient for paleo treats. I love using it with chocolate because the creamy consistency goes so well with rich cacao. Plus, if you don’t love the taste of tahini, the cacao definitely overpowers it- leaving you with the most amazing, decadent freezer fudge of all time!
Paleo Chocolate Fudge
Made with a handful of wholesome ingredients, this chocolate fudge is the perfect snack!
- 1 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted/cooled
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips or chocolate pieces
Line an 8×5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Taste and add more honey if needed.
Pour the batter into the pan, then place the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes or until solid.
Remove the fudge and cut into squares. Store in the freezer until ready to serve!
I use the organic Tahini from Trader Joe's. The only ingredient is sesame seeds, the consistency is creamy and the taste is rich without a bitter after taste. I highly recommend this tahini not only for this recipe, but for salad dressings, sauces, etc. It's a staple in my pantry!
