Raw Caramel Nut Frosted Fudge

One of my favorite holiday treats is freezer fudge. My grandmother’s freezer was always stocked with tins and tins of homemade fudge and assorted goodies. I blame her for my raging sweet tooth. I can’t tell you how many times in my youth (and adulthood) that I snuck out to the deep freeze to pop a piece of rich chocolatey goodness in my mouth and let it melt slowly on my tongue.

I’ve created this raw fudge recipe in honor of my grandmother this holiday season. It’s vegan, grain-free, refined sugar-free, and very easy to make. All you need is a food processor and a loaf pan.

Make the Fudge Layer and spread it into a parchment paper-lined loaf pan.

Make the Caramel Nut Frosting, spread it on top of the fudge layer, and let it set in the freezer.

You can cut the fudge into 8 generous pieces and serve it as Raw Caramel Frosted Fudge Cake.

Or cut each piece of cake into quarters to make 32 bite-sized pieces of freezer fudge. (You know that’s what I’m doing this holiday season.)
