Chocolate Raspberry Fudge Bites

Hello everyone, and happy Wednesday!

Today’s post is one I’ve had formulated since December, and I’m excited to share it with you….

…a delicious, kinda-raw fudge bite that melts in your mouth and bursts with the flavors of raspberry and chocolate….

…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!

    wow–those look delicious. I love how all the ingredients are simple and clean. Great idea! My favorite raw dessert recipe is the Simple Apple Pie I made (and posted about) last fall. Also, my raw fruit crisp was pretty good too.

    THE HEALTHY PLATE: Recipe for warm double chocolate cakes with raspberry ……

    It’s also why I’ve replaced the butter usually found in chocolate cakes with non-fat Greek yogurt. And trust me, not only won’t you miss the butter, but you won’t taste the yogurt. It’s in the mix strictly as a lower-fat way of adding body to……

    Hey! This looks amazing! What size pan did you use? And about how many servings does this recipe make?

      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! :)
