Dark Chocolate Fudge

I was recently making a batch of No-Bake Cookies which made me think about the chocolate ganache layer of the totally rad and raw Salted Caramel Chocolate Pecan Torte and started thinking of how I might use that recipe to make a fun sweet treat. Chain reaction thought process. Here's what I made.
Dark Chocolate Fudge
Dark Chocolate Fudge
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave or coconut nectar
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  1. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place cocoa, oil and sweetener of choice in medium saucepan and heat over medium high to a boil. 
  3. Immediately reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes while you continue to stir.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in coconut and pecans.
  5. Pour into lined loaf pan and set in refrigerator.
  6. After one hour remove fudge from loaf pan and remove from parchment paper. 
  7. Cut with a pizza cutter into 1 inch pieces..
  8. Store in the refrigerator.

This was fully approved by taste testers. They kept saying, "Seriously, no sugar?" 
There is a depth of flavor in the dark chocolate that pairs nicely with a hot cup of bulletproof coffee. Not just good but AMAZING!! 
Valentine Day is less than a month away. How about making some for your special valentine to show him or her how much you truly love them.
