Triple-nut Cacao Fudge



My husband loves hazelnuts, cashews, coconut and above all cacao. So what do you make on his birthday - something that has it all :) This is a delicious fudge, almost raw, with slightly toasted nuts, dried coconut, raw cacao and sweetened with raw honey. Like any other sweets or desserts that I make, I would recommend making tiny slices and enjoying it for a few days :) 


  • Hazelnuts -1 cup
  • Cashew nuts - 1 cup
  • Dried coconut - 2 cups (divided)
  • Raw cacao butter - 3/4 cup (loose shavings) (divided)
  • Raw cacao powder 1/4 cup
  • Raw honey - 1/4 cup (divided)
  • Himalayan salt - a pinch



  • Toast both the nuts separately on medium heat for 5-10 minutes. (Slight toasting is enough, no need to really roast them)
  • Grind toasted hazelnut and 1 cup of coconut along with a pinch of salt in a high speed blender or food processor to get to nut-butter consistency.
  • Repeat the same with cashew nuts, now you have 2 batches of nut-butters - Cashew-coconut and hazelnut-coconut.
  • Melt half of the cacao butter over warm water, add half the raw honey and melt that too. Remove from hot water and mix in cacao powder and hazelnut-coconut butter. Keep aside.
  • Melt the remaining half of the cacao butter over warm water, add the other half the raw honey and melt that too. Remove from hot water and mix in cashew-coconut butter.
  • Grease a cake pan with coconut oil. Pour both these nut-butter mixtures and spread using a knife giving a marble effect.
  • Freeze for about 30 minutes. Then store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Slice and serve. Enjoy !!
