Chocolate Fix

I've been craving chocolate in a fierce way lately and these two goodies have really been satisfying. I found the recipe for Raisin Fudge on but I will post it here as well. I love these because the raisins give it this wonderful tang that I love... I've always been a fan of chocolate covered raisins. The fudge is MUCH better!

Raisin Fudge

Rich and satisfying, this is sure to curb your sweet tooth!

1½ cups Walnuts
1½ cups Raisins (sulphate-free)
½ cup Cacao powder
dash of cinnamon (I omitted this)
pinch of sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and balled up. Remove from bowl and press into square or round glass dish – alternatively you can shape into one large square with your hands. Freeze until firm, then slice. This may be kept refrigerated or frozen.
This recipe is originally from!

The next one was my own creation (I'm so proud!)

Chocolate Rose Silk Pie

1/2 cup nuts (I used Brazil nuts which were amazing in this recipe)
1/2 cup dates

1 cup cashews
2 tbsp coconut oil
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tbsp lucuma powder (optional)
1 tbsp lecithin 1 tbsp rose water (I got mine in the Asian section of my co-op)
pinch of sea salt

In food processor or blender combine nuts and dates to make crust. The consistency should be pretty chunky, I really enjoyed this crust and used it originally for my Key Lime Pie. For the filling: add all ingredients to a high speed blender and mix until smooth. I used small Pyrex dishes (1 cup size) and pressed the pie crust in the bottom of four dishes (you could use one larger dish or spring form pan if you like). Pour in the filling and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set. You could put in the freezer to set faster, but I found that it set just fine in the fridge. You can remove pretty easily from the dish or just eat it strait out of it - it's up to you :)

This pie is so lovely. My mom tasted some and couldn't believe how good it was. Her eyes about popped out of her head. This one is a keeper for sure!
