  • In a small pot on medium heat, combine the cashew butter and maple syrup until smooth and creamy, stirring frequently. You don't want to burn the bottom.
  • Once melted, press into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the roasted cashews and press them into the cashew butter firmly.
  • Place the dates in a small, microwave-safe bowl and microwave until hot, but not burned, about 1 minutes 
  • Add the hot dates into a SMALL food processor (mine is 3 cups ) and use the "chop" setting until they are broken down into small pieces. Then, turn to the "puree" setting until the dates are creamy and begin to form a ball.
  • With the food processor running, stream in the coconut oil and HOT almond milk (I just microwaved it for 30 secs-1 minute) until the dates are broken down, sticky and smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Drop the caramel in spoonfuls over top of the cashew butter (don't drop it in one big chunk, or it's harder to spread) and spread out evenly.  I find using VERY lightly damp fingers is the easiest to do this! Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Cover and freeze at least 2 hours. 
  • Cut into squares and DEVOUR! *


*Depending what texture you like your fudge, you may need to let it thaw for 4-5 minutes.
Store in the freezer.
