Although I try to eat relatively healthy most of the time, one of the things I do not give up every single day is chocolate! Every day I eat some chocolate, and always try to pick something I really like (say, a Mozart chocolate ball or two Lindt’s dark chocolate cubes with roasted sesame or sea salt). That’s how I fit chocolate into my routine nutrition and enjoy every bite.
I made these next tahini chocolate fudge out of a desire to make something sweet and chocolatey that is quite healthy too. These tahini chocolate fudge bars are the easiest candy in the world! They only require a few minutes of preparation and are made of 4 ingredients. I use dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids to keep them bittersweet, but if you prefer them sweeter you can use a smaller percentage of cocoa solids chocolate too.
They are very easy to prepare, dairy free, vegan, gluten free, and if you use chocolate with at least 85% cocoa solids, they are also suitable for those who follow the Paleo diet. They are also kept perfectly for a month in the freezer.
Tahini Chocolate Fudge
For the tahini chocolate fudge:
- 100 grams dark chocolate 70% cocoa solids
- 120 grams (1/2 cup) whole raw tahini
- Pinch of salt
- Sesame seeds
Chop the chocolate and put in a bowl.
Add tahini and salt and melt together in the microwave or over double boiler until everything is melted and the mixture is uniform and smooth.
Pour the mixture into mini muffins paper crowns and fill almost to the rim.
Garnish with sesame seeds and freeze for about 1 hour.
- Keep the fudge in a freezer for up to a month.
- Remove the fudge from the freezer 2-3 minutes before eating to soften a bit.
- Instead of sesame, you can decorate with chopped nuts, coconut or any other nut you like.
