…raw is soooo 2008, right? Well, I have an eternal love for raw desserts! I feel great after eating them, and they are made up of such good-for-you foods that it’s hard to feel guilty after eating them.

These are a favorite in my household, and I hope you will agree!

With only four ingredients in each layer, these are as easy as they are scrumptious! Choose a sugar-free jam or jelly, but be careful in choosing your jam….this could negate the raw factor. Either way, these are a satisfying and healthy treat!

Recipe: Chocolate Raspberry Fudge Bites

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. For the crust: Pulse the nuts until they are broken up.
  2. Add in the dates, cocoa, and salt, and process everything until well combined.
  3. Press the mixture into a small baking dish.
  4. For the raspberry layer: Mix everything together in a bowl until well-combined (it may take a minute or two for everything to emulsify).
  5. Pour the raspberry layer onto the chocolate ‘crust’.
  6. Put the fudge into the freezer to allow it to firm up (about 20-30 minutes).
  7. Cut and enjoy!

      Hi Melissa, I used a 7 x 5 inch glass Pyrex dish, and I cut it into 12 squares (which is what the nutrition facts are based on). I try/like them! :)
