image2-38

This month’s Honest product being highlighted is the 72% Nibs slab. Cacao nibs are simply chocolate in its purest form, before anything else is added. Cacao nibs add a crunch and deep chocolate flavor to anything they are combined with. Their flavor is often described as slightly bitter and nutty. We chose to create a raw chocolate fudge, topped with our 72% nibs slab. The nibs add the texture that takes these little pieces of heaven to the next level!

Ingredients:

For the fudge base:
    • 2 cups raw organic cashews
    • 2 cups unsweetened organic shredded coconut
    • 240g very soft medjool dates, pitted
    • 1 cup raw organic cacao powder
    • ½ cup organic maple syrup
    • Pinch of fine sea salt
For the ganache:
  • 1/2 cup honey

    3. Finally add the honey and a pinch of salt and process to combine until a creamy texture is achieved scraping down the sides as needed.
    4. Press firmly into a parchment lined square or rectangular pan or mold.
    5. Place in fridge while making the ganache topping.
