Valentine’s Day Chocolate Cashew Fudge Recipe
Love is a many-splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is Chocolate Fudge.
Someone recently asked me if I had a date for Valentine's Day. I responded, with “Of course, it's February 14th”.
Although this date can be polarising, most people, whether they’re lovers or rebels, romantics or cynics, feel some kind of way about it. Whether it’s candy and cupids or time spent with loved ones, to clue you in, how you feel about V-Day might just depend on how you feel about yourself.
However you’re enamoured by it, whether you celebrate Valentines or Galentines or it’s kind of not such a big deal, my smooth and rich five ingredient Chocolate Cashew Fudge is a great way to get a healthy dose of the feel goods!
This recipe is soooo melt-in-the-mouth and makes a delicious treat, plus you don’t even need to turn on your stove, it can all be whizzed up in a matter of minutes.
The usual ingredient of fudge is a truckload of sugar, but, here, I’m switching it out for honey to add subtle sweetness. I’ve also moo-ved away from dairy with the addition of coconut milk for an instant touch of creaminess.
What I personally love about this recipe, is that you only need one piece to truly satisfy your tastebuds and you can stash the rest in the fridge or freezer for when you’re looking to appease your sweet tooth on another occasion.
Whatever you’re up to this Valentine’s Day, I have one essential tip for you… don’t forget the chocolate!

Hi Lee, this looks delicious. Which of the lower FODMAP nuts do you think would work here – macadamias (my fave!)?
Hi Karen, I think peanuts or macadamias would work in this recipe 🙂 Lee x
If I can’t find cacao nibs, will cacao powder do and if so how much do you think?
Hello 🙂 I haven’t tried this recipe with cacao powder. You could try 1 cup and also add 1/4 cup coconut sugar depending on sweetness and texture but I can’t guarantee it will be the same 🙂 Lee x
