    Boomette's Note:

    These little fudge babies are addictive. They're raw. They're from the blog of Chocolate-Covered Katie.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 15



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup walnuts (120 grams, I used pecans)
    • 1 1/3 cups pitted dates (230 grams, If you want a sweeter result, up the proportion of dates)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 -4 tablespoons cocoa powder, depending on how chocolatey you want the balls to be (Katie used 4T extra dark)


    1. 1
      Chop/blend all the ingredients, using a food processor, Magic Bullet, etc.
    2. 2
      Roll into cutey-pie little balls. (Use plastic wrap if you need to.).
    3. 3
      I rolled these into balls, but if you want true brownies, simply shape the dough into bars instead.
    4. 4
      **Update*** Version 2:.
    5. 5
      Hot Cocoa Fudge Babies!
    6. 6
      30 grams cashews, 80 grams dates, 5 grams (1T) dark cocoa powder. Blend. Even fudgier than the original! :).
    7. 7
      (Add mint and cacao nibs and you’re getting into Wild Bar territory. And if you leave out the cocoa, you have a homemade Cashew Cookie Larabar!).
    8. 8
      * Add shaved coconut, mini chips, nuts, or raisins to the mix.
    9. 9
      * Moisten truffles, then roll in cocoa powder, sugar, coconut, crushed nuts, etc.
    10. 10
      * Add oils or extracts, such as mint or coconut.
    11. 11
      * Sprinkle in some ground coffee for a java jolt.
    12. 12
      * Extreme Chocoholic Version: Melt some chocolate and add it to the mix when you add the vanilla and cocoa.

      These are great. Very healthy and delicious. I made them with half a cup of walnuts and half a cup of almond meal, 2 cups of dates and 2 table spoons of cocoa powder.

      Absolutely wonderful, at least the 1st version is ~ I figured I couldn't go wrong with a combo like nuts & dates & chocolate! They definitely make for a great chocolate fix, & these "babies" will be made more than once again in my kitchen before the end of the year, & I look forward to adding some of them to my holiday gift bags! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag]

      Delicious! I added some cardamom and frozen orange juice concentrate (for flavouring) and used Brazil nuts instead of walnuts; I also didn't bother measuring the ingredient, just eyeballed it, and they turned out great - though a little too sweet to my liking. Thanks for the recipe!!!
