No Bake Fudge Brownies

The other day, I realized I had a container of dates that had been sitting in the fridge for about a week. I knew I had to use them up quickly, and I have been SO into raw desserts lately. Raw, chocolate fudge brownies was the answer! They turned out so delicious that I had to develop a recipe for them. There is a brownie layer, and a frosting layer that sort of melts into the brownie layer, which definitely elevates the texture and flavor profile.

I love this recipe because it comes together in about ten minutes. Keep these brownies in the freezer, and pull them out when you are in the mood for a decadent, cold, refreshing brownie made with real ingredients. Enjoy!!
