Sweet & Creamy, No-Bake Cacao Fudge

If you love chocolate, then you’re definitely going to love this recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free, and Paleo-friendly cacao fudge. It’s perfect for a healthy dessert, or even as a satisfying snack between meals.

Made with a base of creamy almond butter, silky coconut oil, and sweet raw honey, this cacao fudge will satisfy your sweet tooth without any of the preservatives you’d get in the store-bought kind. We’ll be using raw cacao powder to get the intense chocolate flavor instead of processed chocolate, which tends to be full of added sugar.

Sweet & Creamy, No-Bake Cacao Fudge

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Chilling Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes

Serves: 8 squares

Tools: 9″ x 5″ loaf pan, large skillet


3/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup Cacao Bliss or raw cacao powder

3/4 cup creamy almond butter

1/3 cup raw honey or 100% pure maple syrup

1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt


Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, combine all five ingredients, whisking well until you get a smooth, dark mixture.

Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and let it chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours to let the fudge firm up.

Once the fudge is firm, simply remove the cacao fudge from the loaf pan and slice it into squares. Sink your teeth in and enjoy!

Bonus Tips: For a vegan option, use the maple syrup instead of the raw honey.  Store your cacao fudge in the refrigerator or freezer to maintain its firm texture.
